Flat serrated adenomas and flat tubular adenomas of the colorectal mucosa: differences in the pattern of cell proliferation



Flat serrated adenomas and flat tubular adenomas of the colorectal mucosa: differences in the pattern of cell proliferation



Japanese Journal of Cancer Research 86(8): 756-760



In the present work we have investigated the cell proliferation pattern of flat serrated adenomas and flat tubular adenomas. For this purpose tissue sections from 23 consecutive flat serrated adenomas and 22 consecutive flat tubular adenomas of the colorectal mucosa were challenged with MIB1, a monoclonal antibody directed against a proliferation-related antigen. The results (including semiquantitative studies) demonstrated that, whereas flat serrated adenomas had a high cell proliferation at the lower part of the crypts, flat tubular adenomas had a high cell proliferation in the upper part of the crypts. In serrated adenomas with invasive adenocarcinoma, high cell proliferation was demonstrated both at the lower portion of the crypts and in the subjacent submucosa. This suggests that the cells of the lower portion of the crypts in serrated adenomas are truly neoplastic, with the capacity to evolve into invasive growth. The difference in cell proliferation between the two types of flat lesions reported here is a new argument in favor of the classification of flat serrated adenomas as a novel and independent type of neoplastic change of the colorectal mucosa.
