CONCLUSIONS: Our study confirms that gynecologic cancers including rare entities such as non-human papillomavirus-related endocervical cancer (NHPVA) are sentinels for inherited cancer syndromes. Endocervical cancer NHPVAs might be considered for cancer genetic counseling in order to improve cancer prevention. For this reason, the role of pathologists is particularly important for the correct identification of the cervical tumor site. PMID: 32635821 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report 3 cases of mismatch repair-deficient (dMMR) locally advanced adenocarcinoma of the rectum that showed significant response with neoadjuvant immunotherapy-based systemic treatment. The first patient was not eligible for standard therapy because of a history of radiotherapy to the prostate with concurrent comorbidities and therefore received single-agent pembrolizumab. The second patient did not respond to total neoadjuvant chemoradiation and subsequently received combined nivolumab and ipilimumab. The third patient had a known family history of Lynch syndrome and presented with locally advanced rectal cancer and a...

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between sarcomas and LS by performing clinical and molecular characterization of patients presenting co-occurrence of sarcomas and tumors from the LS spectrum. We identified 27 patients diagnosed with CRC, EC, and other LS-associated tumors who had ...

Authors: Gordhandas S, Kahn RM, Gamble C, Talukdar N, Maddy B, Nelson BB, Askin G, Christos PJ, Holcomb K, Caputo TA, Chapman-Davis E, Frey MK Abstract The inclusion of DNA mismatch repair (MMR) evaluation as a standard of care for endometrial cancer management will result in a growing population of patients with MMR deficiency and negative germline Lynch syndrome testing (MMR-deficient). In this systematic review and study, the clinicopathologic features of endometrial cancer in patients with MMR-intact, MLH1 methylation positive, MMR-deficient or Lynch syndrome are evaluated. A systematic search of online databas...

Contributor : Eduardo VilarSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiens ; Mus musculusLynch syndrome (LS) patients are at markedly increased risk for colorectal cancer. It is being increasingly recognized that the immune system plays an essential role in LS tumor development. Therefore, immune interception strategies are emerging as a novel way to prevent cancer in LS. This phase Ib, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial and a co-clinical trial using a LS mouse model and patient-derived organoids aims to evaluate the safety and tolerability as well as to discover novel mol...

Conclusions: Our study shows that circulating hypermethylated SEPT9 is a specific colorectal cancer biomarker. This hypermethylated SEPT9 DNA disappears around three months after surgery and that circulating hypermethylated SEPT9 may be the first noninvasive marker for postsurgical diagnosis; this conclusion must be confirmed with a more significant number of patients.
