PD-1/PD-L1-targeted immunotherapy has emerged as a promising therapeutic strategy for pulmonary adenocarcinoma (pADC). Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is involved in the progression and immune evasion of cancers. Therefore, we investigated the association between PD-L1 expression and EMT phenotype in pADC. Immunohistochemistry for E-cadherin(More)
AIMS To investigate the clinicopathological characteristics of programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) and programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) expression in the tumour microenvironments of diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL). METHODS AND RESULTS Tumour tissues from 126 DLBCL patients were immunostained for PD-L1 and PD-1. The expression of PD-L1 by tumour(More)
AIM To investigate the expression and prognostic role of programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) in locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). METHODS A total of 200 patients with ESCC who underwent radical esophagectomy with standard lymphadenectomy as the initial definitive treatment in Seoul National University Hospital from December 2000 to(More)
AIM To investigate the clinicopathological features and prognostic implications of combined MYC and fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) status in esophageal squamous cell carcinomas (ESCCs). METHODS All patients with ESCC (n = 180) underwent surgical resection at Seoul National University Hospital sometime between 2000 and 2013. A tissue(More)
Primary diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the central nervous system (PCNS-DLBCL) is a distinct clinicopathological entity with a poor prognosis. Concurrent MYC and BCL2 overexpression predicts inferior prognosis in systemic DLBCLs. However, the prognostic significance of MYC and BCL2 in PCNS-DLBCL remains elusive. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) of MYC, BCL2 and(More)
Programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression in pulmonary adenocarcinomas (pADCs) was implicated in predicting anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapy efficacy. However, the differential expression of PD-L1 between primary and metastatic pADC remains unclear. Thus, we addressed this issue. In total, 161 paired primary and metastatic tumour tissues from 146 patients with(More)
Mucinous cystadenoma of the testis is a very rare tumor. Herein, we report a case of mucinous cystadenoma arising in the testis of a 61-year-old man, along with a literature review. Computed tomography showed a 2.5-cm-sized poorly enhancing cystic mass. Grossly, the tumor was a unilocular cystic mass filled with mucinous material and confined to the(More)
OBJECTIVES MET mutations leading to exon 14 skipping rarely occur in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Recently, small molecule inhibitors targeting MET mutations showed clinical benefit. However, the clinicopathological characteristics of NSCLC harboring MET mutations, and the correlation among mutations, protein expression, and gene copy number of MET(More)
