Childhood cancers in families with and without Lynch syndrome.
Melbourne, Australia. In Fam Cancer, 12 Jun 2015
Using data from the Colon Cancer Family Registry, we compared the proportion of childhood cancers (diagnosed before 18 years of age) in the first-, second-, and third-degree relatives of 781 probands with a pathogenic mutation in one of the MMR genes; MLH1 (n = 275), MSH2 (n = 342), MSH6 (n = 99), or PMS2 (n = 55) or in EPCAM (n = 10) (Lynch syndrome families), with that of 5073 probands with MMR-deficient colorectal cancer (non-Lynch syndrome families).
ING5 suppresses proliferation, apoptosis, migration and invasion, and induces autophagy and differentiation of gastric cancer cells: a good marker for carcinogenesis and subsequent progression.
Jinzhou, China. In Oncotarget, 30 Apr 2015
Compared with the control, ING5 transfectants displayed drug resistance to triciribine, paclitaxel, cisplatin, SAHA, MG132 and parthenolide, which was positively related to their apoptotic induction and the overexpression of chemoresistance-related genes (MDR1, GRP78, GRP94, IRE, CD147, FBXW7, TOP1, TOP2, MLH1, MRP1, BRCP1 and GST-π).
Clinical evaluation of a multiple-gene sequencing panel for hereditary cancer risk assessment.
San Francisco, United States. In J Clin Oncol, Aug 2014
Sixteen pathogenic variants were identified in ATM, BLM, CDH1, CDKN2A, MUTYH, MLH1, NBN, PRSS1, and SLX4 among 141 women without BRCA1/2 mutations.
Rockville, United States. In Unknown Journal, 0001
We evaluated the following tests: microsatellite instability assessment by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for colorectal cancer (CRC), MLH1 promoter methylation for CRC, KRAS mutation testing for CRC, BRAF mutation testing for CRC, Oncotype DX Colon mRNA expression for CRC, Oncotype DX Breast mRNA expression for breast cancer, MammaPrint mRNA expression for breast cancer, ALK cytogenetics for lung cancer, EGFR mutation testing for lung cancer, KRAS mutation testing for lung cancer, and UroVysion cytogenetics for urinary bladder cancer.
