Microsatellite Instability and Colorectal Cancer Prognosis
Purpose: Many studies have evaluated the role of high levels of microsatellite instability (MSI) as a prognostic marker and predictor of the response to chemotherapy in colorectal cancer (CRC);Expand

Pathology of colorectal cancer.
The earliest phases of colorectal tumourigenesis initiate in the normal mucosa, with a generalised disorder of cell replication, and with the appearance of clusters of enlarged crypts (aberrantExpand

Colorectal carcinoma in different age groups: a population-based investigation.
Although colorectal cancer is a disease of the older population, these tumors are not infrequent before the age of 55. Through the data of a population-based registry, we proposed giving aExpand

Immunohistochemical Assessment of Lymphovascular Invasion in Stage I Colorectal Carcinoma: Prognostic Relevance and Correlation With Nodal Micrometastases
Several studies have suggested that the presence of occult nodal metastases (micrometastases) is related to adverse clinical course in stage I colorectal carcinoma. Herein we analyzed the correlationExpand

Identification of Muir–Torre syndrome among patients with sebaceous tumors and keratoacanthomas
The Muir–Torre syndrome (MTS) is an autosomal‐dominant genodermatosis characterized by the presence of sebaceous gland tumors, with or without keratoacanthomas, associated with visceral malignancies.Expand

Survival for colon and rectal cancer in a population-based cancer registry.
Dukes' stage is the most powerful indicator of patient outcome for colorectal cancer. Several cancer survival studies have considered other prognostic variables, but results are often conflicting. WeExpand

Microsatellite instability in multiple colorectal tumors
Tumor multiplicity is a hallmark of hereditary cancers: in the colon‐rectum multiple tumors represent 5–10% of all colorectal cancer cases. A portion of these cases belongs to hereditaryExpand

MUC5AC expression is increased in bronchial submucosal glands of stable COPD patients
Aims:  Mucus expectoration is a common feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). MUC5AC and MUC5B, the major mucins, are released predominantly from submucosal glands in the centralExpand
