BACKGROUND Ki67 labeling index (Ki67 LI), the percentage Ki67 immunoreactive cells, is a measure of tumor proliferation, with important clinical relevance in breast cancer, and it is extremely important to standardize its evaluation. AIM To test the efficacy of computer assisted image analysis (CAIA) applied to completely digitized slides and to assess(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the association of recurrent molecular alterations in prostate cancer, such as ERG rearrangements and phosphatase and tensin homolog gene (PTEN) deletions, with oncologic outcomes in patients with prostate cancer treated with brachytherapy. METHODS Ninety-two men underwent I-125 brachytherapy with a 145 Gy delivered(More)
Genetic testing, which is now a routine part of clinical practice and disease management protocols, is often based on the assessment of small panels of variants or genes. On the other hand, continuous improvements in the speed and per-base costs of sequencing have now made whole exome sequencing (WES) and whole genome sequencing (WGS) viable strategies for(More)
During the last decade, many scientific works have concerned the possible use of miRNA levels as diagnostic and prognostic tools for different kinds of cancer. The development of reliable classifiers requires tackling several crucial aspects, some of which have been widely overlooked in the scientific literature: the distribution of the measured miRNA(More)
