[The new WHO classification and recent results in soft tissue tumor pathology].
Jena, Germany. In Pathologe, 2013
At present there is considerable progress in tumor pathology illustrated by the fact that important new findings have been published after completion of the classification, such as those related to the identification of the recurrent NAB2-STAT6 gene fusion in solitary fibrous tumors and the detection of frequent mutations in the promoter of the hTERT gene in malignant melanoma.
Novel pathways and molecular targets for the treatment of sarcoma.
Saint Louis, United States. In Curr Oncol Rep, 2013
Recently identified novel druggable targets include the MDM2 amplifications in well-differentiated and dedifferentiated liposarcomas, the new translocation NAB2:STAT6 of solitary fibrous tumors, the angiopoeitin-TIE2 pathway in angiosarcoma, the suppression of Mcl1 in X:18/synovial sarcomas, the mTOR pathway in malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, CDK4 in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, cMET regulation in alveolar soft parts sarcoma, the metabolic abnormalities in wild-type/SHD GIST, and the lack of argininosuccinate synthetase 1 expression seen in most sarcomas.
