We examined cDNAs of the catalytic subunit of DNA polymerase alpha (185 kDa), the 70 kDa subunit of replication protein A (single-stranded DNA-binding protein) and the 140 kDa subunit of replication factor C for mutations. Surgical specimens from 12 patients with sporadic colon cancer and normal mucosae from the same patients were investigated. In addition,(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a biologically and clinically heterogeneous disease. Even though many recurrent genomic alterations have been identified that may characterize distinct subgroups, their biological impact and clinical significance as prognostic indicators remain to be defined. The tumor suppressor candidate-3 (TUSC3/N33) locates to a genomic region(More)
Loss of imprinting (LOI) of the insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) is an early event in the development of colorectal cancer (CRC). Whether LOI of IGF2 denotes a molecular or clinical cancer subgroup is currently unknown. Tumor biopsies and paired normal mucosa from 399 patients with extensive clinical annotations were analyzed for LOI and IGF2 expression.(More)
AIM Older data suggest that colonic resection has a negative impact on continence and quality of life. The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional outcome of colonic resections for colonic cancer and diverticulitis and its influence on quality of life. METHODS Patients who underwent colonic resection between 2005 and 2013 were identified from a(More)
Phosphoinositide (PIP) phosphatases such as myotubularins (MTMs) inhibit growth factor receptor signaling. However, the function of myotubularin-related protein 7 (MTMR7) in cancer is unknown. We show that MTMR7 protein was down-regulated with increasing tumor grade (G), size (T) and stage (UICC) in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) (n=1786). The(More)
Chemoradiotherapy is the standard treatment for squamous cell anal cancer. Salvage abdominoperineal resection (APR) is usually reserved for patients presenting with recurrent or persistent disease. Aim of our study was to review the outcomes of salvage surgery and perineal wound healing with or without a vertical rectus abdominis myocutaneous (VRAM) flap in(More)
This study investigated the association of preoperative hypoalbuminemia and postoperative complications after elective resection for rectal cancer. From September 2009 to December 2014, all patients who underwent elective rectal resection for adenocarcinoma of the rectum were identified using a prospective colorectal cancer database. Hypoalbuminemia was(More)
