Sarcomas represent a heterogeneous group of tumors with a complex and poorly reproducible classification. However, in the last ten years, several specific genetic alterations have been described allowing a molecular classification with: 1) sarcomas with a specific translocation which can be used as a diagnostic marker. These translocations can be demonstrated by RT-PCR or by FISH with commercially available break apart probes ; 2) sarcomas with simple genomic profile showing amplification of a… CONTINUE READING
