The aim of this study was to compare BRAF and KRAS, CpG island methylator phenotype (CIMP), and microsatellite instability (MSI) status in each of the histologic categories, including end-point carcinomas with residual adenoma, of the serrated polyp neoplasia pathway and the traditional (nonserrated) adenoma-carcinoma sequence.

BACKGROUND CDKN1C (also known as p57KIP2) is a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor previously implicated in several types of human cancer. Its family members (CDKN1A/p21CIP1 and B/p27KIP1) have been implicated in breast cancer, but information about CDKN1C's role is limited. We hypothesized that decreased CDKN1C may be involved in human breast carcinogenesis(More)
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that mutations of the oncogenes BRAF or KRAS are early events in the putative serrated polyp neoplasia pathway and more advanced pathology is associated with acquired mutator and suppressor gene inactivation by CpG island methylation of promoter regions. We assayed 79 sporadic hyperplastic polyps (HPs)(More)
