Prognostic factors associated with loss of heterozygosity at the RB1 locus in retinoblastoma.

Abstract

The nature of the tumorigenic mutation was analyzed in 30 retinoblastoma (Rb) tumors (16 non-hereditary and 14 hereditary) and categorized into loss of heterozygosity (LOH) or retention of heterozygosity (non-LOH) at the RB1 locus. These genotypic characteristics were compared with the clinicopathological phenotype for possible correlation. The overall… (More)
