Abstract

Purpose: Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is a powerful tool for quantitative analysis of chromosomes and genes and can be applied in a variety of specimens, including cell cultures, isolated nuclei from fresh and fixed tissues, and histological tissue sections. For detection of numerical chromosome aberrations, we examined prostatic cancer samples at our department. In addition, we also observed primary and secondary aberrations taking part in the initiation and progression of tumours.
