Translational research relies on high-quality biospecimens. In patients with rectal cancer treated preoperatively with radiochemotherapy tissue based analyses are challenging. To assess quality challenges we analyzed tissue samples taken over the last years in a multicenter setting. We retrospectively evaluated overall 197 patients of the CAO/ARO/AIO-94-(More)
PURPOSE For years, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) has been the backbone of radiochemotherapy (RCT) of locally advanced rectal cancer. Its main target, thymidylate synthase (TS), is speculated to be an important biomarker for response prediction and long-term prognosis. In this study, we analyzed TS expression in the rectal cancer tissue of 208 patients to evaluate(More)
PURPOSE The duodenum as primary site for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) is rare and mitotic rate, tumor size, type of mutation and number of chromosomal aberrations have prognostic implications. METHODS We analyzed the outcome of 13 patients with duodenal GISTs who underwent surgical tumor resection. Either segmental duodenectomy or(More)
