Comparative genomic hybridization was used to screen 25 adenocarcinomas and 25 squamous cell carcinomas of the lung for chromosomal imbalances. DNA copy number decreases common to both entities were observed on chromosomes 1p, 3p, 4q, 5q, 6q, 8p, 9p, 13q, 18q, and 21q. Similarly, DNA gains were observed for chromosomes 5p, 8q, 11q13, 16p, 17q, and 19q.(More)
Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) was used to screen 83 lung adenocarcinomas of 60 patients for chromosomal imbalances. The most common alteration was DNA overrepresentation on chromosome 1q, with a peak incidence at 1q22-q23 in 73% of the primary tumours, followed by DNA overrepresentation on chromosomes 8q and 20q, and deletions on chromosomes 3p,(More)
BACKGROUND In 2009, the Federal Joint Committee (Gemeinsamer Bundesausschuss, G-BA) enacted to introduce the newborn hearing screening (NHS). The records of 11,155 children were analyzed with the aim to obtain data of the age at the time of determined diagnosis of childhood hearing impairment before and after introduction of the NHS.

Metastases account for approximately 50% of the malignant tumors in the brain. In order to identify structural alterations that are associated with tumor dissemination into the central nervous system we used Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) to investigate 42 brain metastases and 3 primary tumors of 40 patients. The metastases originated from lung(More)
