Abstract: To study the process of cell death in cervical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) after radiation, an ultrastructural and immunohistochemical study was performed. Paraffinembedded tissue blocks of biopsy samples pre- and postradiation stage III SCC (n = 15) were collected. Irradiation caused varying ultrastructural changes including nuclear and cytoplasmic disorganization suggesting cell necrosis. Immunohistochemically, the pre-radiation specimens showed no positive reaction for tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF- ホア),tumor necrosis factor-receptor(TNF-ホウ)or Fas. C-fos, p 53 and bcl-2 showed positive reactions in only a few nonirradiated specimens. All of the irradiated specimens showed a positive reaction for TNF-ホア,and variable positive reactions were observed for TNF-ホウ,Fas, p 53, c-fos and bcl-2. These results suggest that TNF-ホア,TNF-ホウ,and c-fos are responsible for radiation induced cell death in cervical SCC.
