Mismatch Repair/Microsatellite Instability Evaluated Using Cytology Effusion Specimens

DNA mismatch repair (MMR) status is routinely assessed in colorectal and endometrial carcinoma as a method of cancer prevention, surveillance in patients with Lynch syndrome and their families, and for prognostic, predictive, and therapeutic implications. More...

Metastatic Gastric Cancer Outcomes Informed by Single-Cell Transcriptome Profiles

Peritoneal Carcinomatosis (PC) is a late stage manifestation of several gastrointestinal malignancies including appendiceal, colorectal, and gastric cancer. In PC, tumors metastasize to and deposit on the peritoneal surface and often leave patients with only palliative treatment options. More...
