OBJECTIVE Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors are aggressive neoplasms of the central nervous system occurring mainly in the early childhood and rarely in adults. We described a case of this tumor in an 18-year-old male patient without previous medical history. MATERIAL AND METHODS The neoplasm was localized in the right frontotemporal area of the brain and(More)
Microsatellite instability (MSI) constitutes an alternative—to the chromosomal instability—pathway of carcinogenesis for certain tumour types with prognostic and therapeutic significance for the respective patients. MSI is caused by mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes, mainly hMLH1, hMSH2, leading to a defective MMR system. The role of MSI in basal(More)
In the present study, we carried out a comparative immunohistochemical analysis of aurora-A and aurora-B expression in 40 patients with primary glioblastomas, and attempted to identify any associations with Ki-67 index and the patients' clinical features. The impact of various treatment modalities and proliferative activity on patient outcome was also(More)
BACKGROUND Clear cell renal cell carcinomas (ccRCCs) constitute the most common renal carcinomas, characterized by a relatively aggressive clinical course. Thus, scientific research is targeting towards the identification of immunohistochemical and molecular markers that could be useful regarding diagnosis, appropriate therapy and prediction of prognosis.(More)
BACKGROUND Colorectal (CRC) carcinogenesis through various morphological stages has been linked to several genetic and epigenetic changes. The Raf/MEK/ERK (MAPK) signal transduction cascade is an important mediator of a number of cellular fates. METHODS In this study, we investigated the presence of B-raf and K-ras mutations in 94 consecutive cases of(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to determine the potential synchronous contribution of alterations in TGF-betaRII, BAX, IGFIIR, caspase-5, hMSH3 and hMSH6 genes to the development and clinical outcome of bladder cancer, in relation to p53 mutations, microsatellite status and hMLH1/hMSH2 expression. METHODS Molecular biology techniques as well as(More)
Microsatellite instability (MSI) caused by a defective DNA mismatch repair (MMR) system is one of the phenotypes of genomic instability, accounting for the tumorigenesis of certain types of cancers conveying clinical and prognostic significance. Genes such as TGF-betaRII, IGFIIR, hMSH3, and hMSH6 include coding mononucleotide repeats that are known targets(More)
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common malignant human neoplasm characterized by slow growth and virtual absence of metastases. Recently, it has become evident that along with genetic mutations epigenetic alterations play a key role in the pathogenesis of human cancer. We searched for promoter methylation of hMLH1, RASSF1A, DAPK, APC, DCR1 and DCR2(More)
Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin malignancy. Genes related to the Ras/Raf signalling pathway have been implicated in the pathogenesis of skin cancer. The objective of this study was to investigate the presence of B-Raf mutations in sporadic BCCs as well as its correlation with the phenotype of microsatellite instability (MSI), the(More)
