In the 2 and half decades reviewed (1970‐1995), research established that chromosomal translocation, deletion, and DNA amplification are prerequisites to cancerogenesis and that oncogenes, tumor‐suppressor genes, growth factors, and cytokines play crucial roles in the pathomechanism of cancer. Human papillomavirus, human immunodeficiency virus, herpes virus, and hepatitis B virus were identified as cancer‐causing viruses. Several laboratory tests were developed for the detection of primary and… 
A note from history: Landmarks in history of cancer, part 5
TLDR
With all the advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers, very little betterment could be demonstrated in the overall survival of patients, and by the end of the 1930s, cancer became the second most common cause of death in the United States.
Pathfinders in oncology from the time the causal relation between tobacco use and lung cancer was established to publication of the first Cancer Staging Manual by the American Joint Committee on Cancer
TLDR
During the period from 1962 to 1977, several antigens, notably carcinoembryonic antigen and prostate‐specific antigen, were discovered and entered clinical use and radioimmunoassay and immunohistochemistry techniques were standardized.
Pathfinders in oncology from the beginning of the 19th century to the inauguration of the first cancer hospital in the United States
TLDR
7 renowned physicians (4 pathologists and 3 surgeons) who revolutionized medical and oncology thinking in ways that are still felt today are remembered eponymically for their contributions to oncologists to this day.
Somatic Genetic Variation in Children: from Mosaicism to Cancer
TLDR
The findings presented in this thesis demonstrate that genetic variation is a rare but significant feature in normal cells of young human tissues, in contrast, such variation is extremely common within childhood solid tumors.
Exploring the Molecular Landscape of Cutaneous Melanoma
TLDR
Studies in this thesis have helped to unravel the existing molecular diversity in the CMM tumors and could potentially motivate the exploration of new therapeutic strategies.
Pathfinders in oncology from ancient times to the end of the Middle Ages
TLDR
All physicians who care for cancer patients owe these pioneer physicians, whatever their shortcomings, an inexpressible debt for their attempts to cure cancer.
Conservation of oncofetal antigens on human embryonic stem cells enables discovery of monoclonal antibodies against cancer
TLDR
A19 was elucidated to internalize into cancer cells following binding to Erbb-2 and hence developed as an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC), which was able to kill cancer cells in vitro and delayed the onset of tumour formation in mice xenograft model.
Pathfinders in oncology from the end of the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 19th century
TLDR
The 7 pioneer physicians considered in this review lived through some of the most turbulent geopolitical, social, and religious upheavals that Europe had experienced during the Renaissance and established the groundwork for modern anatomy, physiology, chemistry, pathology, surgical oncology, and chemotherapy.
PP2A: A Promising Biomarker and Therapeutic Target in Endometrial Cancer
TLDR
The therapeutic potential of direct and indirect PP2A targeting compounds, possibly in combination with other anti-cancer drugs, in EC are discussed and the potential of thePP2A status as a predictive and/or prognostic marker for type I and II ECs is investigated.
INTRODUCING NOVEL COMBINATORIAL TARGETED THERAPIES IN MULTIPLE TYPES OF CANCER
TLDR
It is hypothesized that sildenafil, a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor, could enhance the toxicities of sorafenib and regorafen ib in HCC and CRC cells, which has had a poor response rate in the clinic.

TLDR
Although more advances were made in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancers than any other period in history, the overall mortality rate of patients with cancer remained high and unchanged.
A note from history: Landmarks in history of cancer, part 5
TLDR
With all the advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers, very little betterment could be demonstrated in the overall survival of patients, and by the end of the 1930s, cancer became the second most common cause of death in the United States.
A note from history: Landmarks in history of cancer, part 4
TLDR
The 50 years covered in this review formed the groundwork for the coordinated, specialized care of cancer patients at institutions dedicated to render the most promising treatment.
Current concepts review. The surgical staging of musculoskeletal sarcoma.
The concept of staging malignant tumors arose in re sponse to the need for meaningful assessment of various methods of treatment in end-result studies. Its purpose was to ensure that lesions of
Flow cytometry in clinical cancer research.
TLDR
A role for flow cytometry is emerging as a tool for diagnosis of cancer (abnormal DNA content), specific histopathological diagnosis (RNA for hematological cancers; surface markers for lymphoid and myeloid neoplasms), prognosis, and treatment (cytokinetically oriented, monoclonal antibodies, drug pharmacology).
The biology of colorectal cancer. Implications for pretreatment and follow‐up management
TLDR
The biology of colorectal cancer is discussed in terms of multistage carcinogenesis, and critical lesions in the p53 gene appear to be responsible for malignant transformation and the appearance of genetic instability of the neoplastic cell.
The Surgical Staging of Musculoskeletal Sarcoma *
The concept of staging malignant tumors arose in re sponse to the need for meaningful assessment of various methods of treatment in end-result studies. Its purpose was to ensure that lesions of
Uterine sarcomas. Classification, diagnosis, and prognosis.
TLDR
A modification of the classification of uterine sarcomas is proposed that it is thought offers a simple, straightforward, histogenetically accurate terminology for this group of tumors and permits as detailed a subclassification of each group of tumor as now seems warranted.
Bronchoalveolar cell carcinoma of the lung.
TLDR
A multivariable analysis was performed of all patients registered and confirmed to have bronchoalveolar cell carcinoma of the lung in the Tumor Registry of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital between 1969 and 1983, and no correlation could be found in this series between a patient's age, sex, smoking history, or occupational exposure and the incidence or outcome of the disease.
Studies of the HER-2/neu proto-oncogene in human breast and ovarian cancer.
TLDR
The concept that the HER-2/neu gene may be involved in the pathogenesis of some human cancers, including breast and ovarian cancer, is supported.
