Abstract

Background: Quantitative DNA analysis of fresh biopsy material can contribute to a more accurate diagnosis and prognosis. The authors aimed to develop and test a mechanical, nuclear preparation protocol for quantitative DNA analysis. Patients and Methods: Altogether 32 gastric (10 healthy, 17 gastritis, 7 adenocarcinoma) and 48 colon (21 healthy, 20 colitis ulcerosa, 7 adenocarcinoma) biopsy specimens were evaluated. The mechanical disruption was performed by Medimachine (DAKO, Denmark). The flow cytometry analysis was performed on a BD FACSStar flow cytometer. Results: DNA Aneuploidy was found in gastric samples only in tumours. The S-phase fraction of the normal cases was 5.9 ± 2.1%, 5.1% ± 1.2% in gastritis and 10.7 ± 1.6% in carcinomas. Seven out of 20 colitis ulcerosa and 4 out of 7 colon cancer samples were aneuploid. The S-phase fraction of normal colon cases was 5.7 ± 3.4%, in colitis 8.1 ± 4.2% and 15.1 ± 5.7% in carcinomas, respectively. Conclusion: Mechanical nuclear isolation is a useful method for flow cytometric DNA ploidy analysis of fresh biopsy samples.
