A common single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs6983267, at 8q24.21 has recently been shown to associate with colorectal cancer (CRC). Three independent SNP association studies showed that rs6983267 contributes to CRC with odds ratios (OR) of 1.17 to 1.22. Here, we genotyped a population-based series of 1,042 patients with CRC and 1,012 healthy controls(More)
PURPOSE Endometrial carcinoma (EC) is common in the population and the most frequent extracolonic malignancy in hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal carcinoma (HNPCC)/Lynch syndrome. We characterized precursor lesions of endometrioid EC to identify markers of malignant transformation and tumor progression. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Serial specimens of normal(More)
Immunohistochemically detectable p53 protein using a polyclonal antibody (CM-1) was studied in 42 carcinomas of which 11 were grade I, 22 grade II and nine grade III carcinomas. Additionally 14 urothelial dysplasias were studied. In 11 of these a diagnosis of transitional cell carcinoma was established before and in one after the dysplasia diagnosis.(More)
A high level of apoptotic activity and an independence of apoptosis from the expression of p53 and bcl-2 have been observed in non-small-cell lung carcinoma. We examined 44 samples of normal, metaplastic and premalignant (i.e. mild, moderate and severe dysplasias and carcinoma in situ) bronchial epithelia to evaluate whether differences in the apoptotic(More)
