Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer is an autosomal dominant inherited disease associated of CDH1 germline mutations (that encodes for the E-cadherin protein), and lobular breast cancer is the second most frequent type of neoplasia. Recently, novel E-cadherin constitutional alterations have been identified in pedigree clustering only for lobular breast(More)
Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer is an autosomic dominant syndrome associated with E-cadherin protein (CDH1) gene germline mutations. Clinical criteria for genetic screening were revised in 2010 by the International Gastric Cancer Linkage Consortium at the Cambridge meeting. About 40 % of families fulfilling clinical criteria for this inherited disease(More)
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess the ability of fluorine-18-labeled fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18 F-FDG-PET), computed tomography (CT)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and serum tumor marker (TM) to predict the viability of residual masses after high-dose chemotherapy (HD-Ctx) in patients with metastatic germ-cell(More)
This paper aims to discuss the role and the accuracy of positron emission tomography (PET) and to evaluate computed tomography (CT) contrast enhancement in diagnosing the nature of lung nodules detected by low-dose CT, performed as screening for lung cancer. When applying strict admission criteria to the test, CT contrast enhancement is feasible in 40% of(More)
