BACKGROUND To identify new epigenetic markers and further characterize Urothelial Cell Carcinoma (UCC), we tested the promoter methylation (PM) status of 19 genes previously identified as cancer specific methylated genes in other solid tumors. METHODS We used bisulfite sequencing, methylation specific PCR and quantitative methylation specific PCR (QMSP)(More)
AIM The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of global and gene-specific DNA methylation changes as potential biomarkers for gallbladder cancer (GBC) in a cohort from Chile. MATERIAL & METHODS DNA methylation was analyzed through an ELISA-based technique and quantitative methylation-specific PCR. RESULTS Global DNA Methylation Index (p = 0.02) and(More)
Lungs resected for adenocarcinomas often harbour minute discrete foci of cytologically atypical pneumocyte proliferations designated as atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (AAH). Evidence suggests that AAH represents an initial step in the progression to adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS), minimally invasive adenocarcinoma (MIA) and fully invasive adenocarcinoma.(More)
