Little or no data exist concerning the inactivation of tumor suppressor genes in intraductal lesions surrounding invasive ductal pancreatic carcinomas. Using a novel improved primer extension and preamplification polymerase chain reaction, we analyzed microdissected paraffin-embedded specimens of pancreatic carcinoma (n = 29) and their corresponding(More)
Mutations are the substrate of cancer. Yet, little is known about the degree and nature of mutations in tumors because measurement of mutation load in tumors and normal tissues was generally not possible until the advent of transgenic mouse mutation detection systems. Herein, we present the first analysis of mutation frequency and pattern in thymic tumors(More)
