BACKGROUND Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and its downstream factors KRAS and BRAF are mutated in several types of cancer, affecting the clinical response to EGFR inhibitors. Mutations in the EGFR kinase domain predict sensitivity to the tyrosine kinase inhibitors gefitinib and erlotinib in lung adenocarcinoma, while activating point mutations in(More)
PURPOSE To devise an effective method for detecting mutations in 12 genes (CA4, CRX, IMPDH1, NR2E3, RP9, PRPF3, PRPF8, PRPF31, PRPH2, RHO, RP1, and TOPORS) commonly associated with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP) that account for more than 95% of known mutations. METHODS We used long-range PCR (LR-PCR) amplification and next-generation(More)
PURPOSE To identify myocilin (MYOC) and cytochrome P450, family 1, subfamily B, polypeptide 1 (CYP1B1) mutations in a Spanish population with different clinical forms of familial glaucoma or ocular hypertension (OHT). METHODS Index patients from 226 families participated in this study. Patients were diagnosed with familial glaucoma or OHT by complete(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to test a newly devised cost-effective multiplex PCR assay for the molecular diagnosis of autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP), as well as the use of whole-exome sequencing (WES) to detect disease-causing mutations in adRP. METHODS Genomic DNA was extracted from peripheral blood lymphocytes of index patients with adRP(More)
Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) deficiency is a pharmacogenetic syndrome associated with life-threatening toxicity following exposure to the fluoropyrimidine drugs 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and capecitabine (CAP), widely used for the treatment of colorectal cancer and other solid tumors. The most prominent loss-of-function allele of the DPYD gene is the(More)
