Ekspresi Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Berhubungan Positif dengan Kedalaman Invasi pada Adenokarsinoma Kolorektal
TLDR
Tujuan penelitian ini untuk menganalisishubungan antara ekspresi VEGF dan kedalaman invasi pada adenokarsinoma kolorektal yang terjadi di seluruhdunia dan merupakan masalah kesehatan serius di Indonesia.
Impact of Nutritional Status on Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET) Aggressiveness
TLDR
This is the first study reporting an association between nutritional status and tumor aggressiveness in a selected group of GEP-NETs and higher intakes of food of MD, may represent a potential tool for prevention of tumor aggressivity.
An Overview of Autosomal Dominant Tumour Syndromes with Prominent Features in the Oral and Maxillofacial Region
TLDR
The pertinent features of autosomal dominant inherited tumour syndromes are reviewed with a systems-based approach, emphasising their clinical impact and diagnosis.
Evaluation of Expression of Her2/neu in Gastric Cancer and Its Significance as a Prognostic Factor in Gastric Adenocarcinoma
TLDR
Her2 neu expression is more in Oesophageal gastric junctional tumours & corpus location of stomach tumours (35.3%) compared to Pylorus-Antral tumours, and also the presence of HER-2/neu expression in patients with signet ring cell carcinoma (40% compared to Non signetRing cell carcinomas) is observed.
Absence of either gastric or intestinal phenotype in microscopic differentiated gastric carcinomas
TLDR
The phenotypes of the carcinomas and their surrounding mucosa were unrelated, suggesting that DGCs may arise from gastric mucosa affected by intestinal metaplasia or not, without having either the gastric or intestinal phenotype.
Mucinous cystic neoplasms of the liver: presence of biliary communication
TLDR
A 35-year-old woman referred for a symptomatic liver mass was diagnosed with low-grade mucinous cystic neoplasm of the liver (MCN-L), which has not been elucidated due to its rarity.
Operative morbidity and mortality for colorectal cancer: 10-years’ experience
TLDR
Among the commonest cancer in India, colon cancer is 8 commonest and rectal cancer is 9 commonest among men and women, and for women, Colon cancer is9 commonest.

beta-catenin is a target for the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway.
TLDR
It is shown that ubiquitination of beta-catenin is greatly reduced in Wnt-expressing cells, providing the first evidence that the ubiquitin-proteasome degradation pathway may act downstream of GSK3beta in the regulation of Beta-Catenin.
Replication errors in benign and malignant tumors from hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer patients.
TLDR
The involvement of mismatch repair deficiency in the premalignant stage of tumorigenesis in HNPCC cases is suggested, and it is suggested that mismatch repair genes (MSH2 or others) are defective in the germline of nearly all these patients.
Features of gastric cancer in hereditary non‐polyposis colorectal cancer syndrome
TLDR
The results support the view that gastric cancer belongs to the tumor spectrum of HNPCC, and the intestinal type of histology is characteristic, as is the RER+ phenotype, but H. pylori infection was rare.
DNA mismatch repair and cancer.
Five human DNA mismatch repair genes have been identified that, when mutated, cause susceptibility to hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). Mutational inactivation of both copies of a

TLDR
Turcot syndrome is rare and is considered to be an alternative form of two more common syndromes associated with polyp formations: hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer and familial adenomatous polyposis.

Abrogation of p53-Induced Apoptosis by the Hepatitis B Virus X Gene.
TLDR
As an oncoprotein, HBx has been reported to disregulate cell-cycle transition to potentially target certain proteases and proteasome, to interact with DNA repair factors, or to interaction with the p53 tumor suppressor gene product.
Acinar morphology in colorectal cancer is associated with survival but is not an independent prognostic variable
TLDR
A retrospective analysis is undertaken to test this observation in patients with colonic as well as rectal adenocarcinoma, and to assess interobserver agreement for identifying microacinar morphology.
