Background and objectives

The results of DNA and RNA molecular profiles obtained from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and colorectal patients (CRC) since the implementation of a Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) panel in a diagnostic laboratory setting were analyzed. A review of the detected mutations in its clinicopathological context was performed and […]

Abstract

Invasive micropapillary carcinoma is associated with frequent lymph node metastasis and adverse clinical outcome. Initially described as a variant of breast and ovarian carcinoma, it has subsequently been found in other organs, most recently the colon. Reports of […]
