PURPOSE Urothelial carcinoma is a disease of the entire urothelium. Recent molecular insights suggest that the biology of some upper urinary tract and bladder urothelial carcinoma differ. These differences may affect tumor phenotype. Observational studies conflict as to the significance of anatomical location on the behavior of urothelial carcinoma. We(More)
We report clinicopathologic features of a large series of renal translocation carcinomas from a multicentric study. Diagnosis was performed by cytogenetic examination of fresh material and/or by immunochemistry with antibodies directed against the C-terminal part of transcription factor E3 (TFE3) and native transcription factor EB (TFEB) proteins. Clinical(More)
PURPOSE Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is a pan-urothelial disease characterized by multiplicity. Although little is known about the molecular events in upper-tract TCC, similar carcinogenic mechanisms are thought to occur throughout the urinary tract. However, we have previously shown that distinct patterns of microsatellite instability occur in upper(More)
AIMS To report clinicopathological and genomic characteristics of (ccpRCC), a rare, recently characterized renal tumour entity. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-four renal tumours identified as ccpRCC were collected. Data from comparative genomic hybridization on microarrays (array-CGH) were obtained for seven of these. Most tumours (58%) occurred in the(More)
To date, two forms of microsatellite instability (MSI) have been described in human cancer. MSI typical of hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC), is due to deficient DNA mismatch repair (MMR) and is defined with mono- and dinucleotide repeat microsatellites. A second variety of instability is best seen at selective tetranucleotide repeats (EMAST;(More)
Mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinomas are low-grade renal epithelial neoplasms, which were first recognized as a specific entity in the World Health Organization 2004 classification. Forty-five documented cases have been reported. We present 15 additional cases that were incidentally discovered in ten women and five men, with a mean age of 53 years.(More)
Tubulocystic carcinoma is a tumor entity, which is not yet included in the WHO-classification of renal tumors. We report a series of 11 cases of this tumor, 6 of which were examined in by immunohistochemistry using a panel of five antibodies (CK7, CK34βE12, CK19, CD10 and P504S). All patients were men. Each had renal tumor stage of pT1N0M0, with a diameter(More)
Ischemic and solid tumor tissues are less well perfused than normal tissue, leading to metabolic changes and chronic hypoxia, which in turn promotes angiogenesis. We identified human angiopoietin-like 4 (angptl4) as a gene with hypoxia-induced expression in endothelial cells. We showed that the levels of both mRNA and protein for ANGPTL4 increased in(More)
BACKGROUND Corticotropin-independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia may be an incidental finding or it may be identified during evaluation for Cushing's syndrome. Reports of familial cases and the involvement of both adrenal glands suggest a genetic origin of this condition. METHODS We genotyped blood and tumor DNA obtained from 33 patients with(More)
Muscle-invasive bladder carcinoma (MIBC) constitutes a heterogeneous group of tumors with a poor outcome. Molecular stratification of MIBC may identify clinically relevant tumor subgroups and help to provide effective targeted therapies. From seven series of large-scale transcriptomic data (383 tumors), we identified an MIBC subgroup accounting for 23.5% of(More)
