Kirsten ras mutations in patients with colorectal cancer: the ‘RASCAL II’ study
Researchers worldwide with information about the Kirsten ras (Ki-ras) tumour genotype and outcome of patients with colorectal cancer were invited to provide that data in a schematized format for… Expand
Pancreatic cyst fluid DNA analysis in evaluating pancreatic cysts: a report of the PANDA study.
BACKGROUND The role of pancreatic cyst fluid DNA analysis in evaluating pancreatic cysts remains unclear. OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to evaluate the utility of a detailed DNA analysis of pancreatic… Expand
The relationship between TP53 mutations and overexpression of p53 and prognosis in malignant gliomas of childhood.
The prognosis for children with high-grade gliomas remains somewhat unpredictable. Although prolonged disease control is sometimes achieved after surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, most… Expand

The human polyomaviruses BK virus (BKV) and JC virus (JCV) have been linked to ureteric stenosis and allograft interstitial nephritis, but molecular characterization of the species involved has not… Expand
Genotypic classification of colorectal adenocarcinoma. Biologic behavior correlates with K‐ras‐2 mutation type
Background. New measures enabling better prediction of biologic behavior of large bowel cancer are highly desirable. One hundred ninety‐four consecutive primary, recurrent, and metastatic colorectal… Expand
Increased expression of keratinocyte growth factor messenger RNA associated with inflammatory bowel disease.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Alterations in intestinal epithelial cell function are common in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) is an epithelial cell-specific mitogen. The aim… Expand
Rarity of PTEN deletions and EGFR amplification in malignant gliomas of childhood: results from the Children's Cancer Group 945 cohort.
OBJECT In reporting on molecular studies involving malignant gliomas in adults, authors have noted that deletions of PTEN and amplification of EGFR are common and may contribute to tumor development,… Expand
