Prognostic relevance of an epigenetic biomarker panel in sentinel lymph nodes from colon cancer patients
(BioMed Central, 2017-09-05)
Background: Patients with early colorectal cancer (stages I–II) generally have a good prognosis, but a subgroup of 15–20% experiences relapse and eventually die of disease. Occult metastases have been suggested ...
Influence of microsatellite instability and KRAS and BRAF mutations on lymph node harvest in stage I–III colon cancers
(Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, 2013)
Lymph node (LN) harvest is influenced by several factors, including tumor genetics. Microsatellite instability (MSI) is associated with improved node harvest, but the association to other genetic factors is largely unknown. ...
