NTRK fusion oncogenes in pediatric papillary thyroid carcinoma in northeast United States.
Bologna, Italy. In Cancer, Feb 2016
RESULTS: Seven of 27 PTCs (26%) had neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor (NTRK) fusion oncogenes (NTRK type 3/ets variant 6 [NTRK3/ETV6], n =5; NTRK3/unknown, n = 1; and NTRK type 1/translocated promoter region, nuclear basket protein [NTRK1/TPR], n = 1), including 5 tumors that measured >2 cm and 3 that diffusely involved the entire thyroid or lobe.
Molecular signature of salivary gland tumors: potential use as diagnostic and prognostic marker.
Piracicaba, Brazil. In J Oral Pathol Med, Jun 2015
Finally, the identification of ETV6-NTRK3 in cases previously diagnosed as uncommon acinic cell carcinomas, cystadenocarcinomas, and adenocarcinomas not otherwise specified led to the characterization of a completely new and now widely accepted entity, including, therefore, mammary analogue secretory carcinoma in the list of well-recognized salivary gland carcinomas.
