Clinical and molecular characterization of diffuse large B-cell lymphomas with 13q14.3 deletion

Background: Deletions at 13q14.3 are common in chronic lymphocytic leukemia and are also present in diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL) but never in immunodeficiency-related DLBCL. To characterize DLBCL with 13q14.3 deletions, we combined genome-wide DNA profiling, gene expression and clinical data in a large DLBCL series treated with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicine...

The value of microsatellite instability in the detection of HNPCC families and of sporadic colorectal cancers with special biological features: An investigation on a series of 100 consecutive cases

Background: Microsatellite instability (MI) is a biological characteristic of most tumors involved in hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). This disease appears to be caused by germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes, which are responsible for repairing single base-pair mismatches. At least five human genes participate in MMR. MI also occurs in 10%-15% of...
