The proto-oncogene proviral integration site for moloney murine leukemia virus (PIM) kinases (PIM-1, PIM-2, and PIM-3) are serine/threonine kinases that are involved in a number of signaling pathways important to cancer cells. PIM kinases act in downstream effector functions as inhibitors of apoptosis and as positive regulators of G1-S phase progression(More)
Metastatic renal cell carcinoma with sarcomatoid histology (SmRCC) is associated with poor survival. No data is available from randomized trials on the efficacy of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors in SmRCC. We identified SmRCC patients from a single institutional database. To identify predictive(More)
The human papillomavirus (HPV) status of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) is a frequent request for Anatomic Pathology labs. However, prognostic value of HPV status is limited to identification of high risk HPV in oropharyngeal SCCs. The purpose of this study is to investigate the ordering practices of in situ hybridization (ISH) for HPV in(More)
We report a case of a Ewing sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor in an 85-year-old woman who presented with an enlarging circumscribed left flank mass. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 3 × 5 × 10 cm heterogeneous mass arising from the 10th rib. Computed tomography demonstrated a small nodule in the right middle lobe and bilateral pleural effusions.(More)
BACKGROUND The Provirus integrating site Moloney murine leukemia virus (Pim) family are proteins with serine/threonine kinase activity. Studies have demonstrated overexpression of Pims in cancer. To our knowledge, only a single study has examined Pim-1 in urothelial carcinoma. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate Pim-1, Pim-2, and Pim-3 in(More)
PURPOSE Tumor genomic profiling helps direct therapy for advanced urothelial carcinoma (UC). In the course of clinical care, we encountered a patient with a complete loss of SMARCB1 (switch/sucrose nonfermentable-related matrix-associated actin-dependent regulator of chromatin subfamily B member 1), which encodes INI-1 (integrase interactor 1), as the sole(More)
