BACKGROUND Molecularly targeted agents have been reported to have anti-tumour activity for patients whose tumours harbour the matching molecular alteration. These results have led to increased off-label use of molecularly targeted agents on the basis of identified molecular alterations. We assessed the efficacy of several molecularly targeted agents(More)
Sebaceous neoplasms are a major clinical feature of Muir-Torre syndrome (MTS) associated with visceral malignancies, especially colorectal and endometrial tumors. The diagnosis of MTS relies largely on the microsatellite instability (MSI) phenotype in tumors, suggesting germline mutations in DNA mismatch repair (MMR) genes responsible for the inherited(More)
Validated predictive biomarkers for multi-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (MTKI) efficacy are lacking. We hypothesized that interindividual response variability is partially dependent on somatic DNA copy number alterations (SCNAs), particularly those of genes encoding the protein tyrosines targeted by MTKI (called target genes). Genomic alterations were(More)
Background Breast cancer (BC) patients with comparable prognostic features have heterogeneous outcomes, party related to a possible radiotherapy resistance leading to local-regional recurrences (LRR). The objective of the present study was to identify predictive molecular biomarkers of LRR of BC. Patients and Methods Genetic profile of 146 BC patients'(More)
