Abstract

The stromal reaction is a well known phenomenon in histopathology because it involves multiple proteins, cell-signaling and extracellular matrix events that provide a response to an epithelial tissue aggression, particularly neoplastic changes and inflammatory processes. Although it is well known the processes that lead to the formation of reactive stroma in prostate many questions about this phenomenon, so this project aims to identify, quantify and characterize stromal cells as well as key elements of the extracellular matrix remain associated with prostate reactive stroma in Mongolian gerbils subjected to different forms of androgen ablation and blockade of the enzymes 5±-reductase and aromatase. To achieve the objectives, experimental studies in vivo with adult and senile male gerbils will be employed. Our experimental design consists, in general, the assessment of the effects of chrysin (aromatase inhibitor) and finasteride (5-alpha-reductase inhibitor) applied in adult animals previously castrated and intact in specific times of 1, 4 and 72 weeks of experimental treatment. For evaluation of cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix interactions features immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence for specific markers of cells and extracellular matrix molecules will be employed. Analyzes will be made in light microscopy, confocal laser and electron transmission microscopies. The results expected from this research should provide a better understanding of the relationships between the cells involved in the genesis and dynamics of reactive stroma and correlate them with the extracellular environment that keeps this histopathological process.
