Rectal neuroendocrine tumors (RNETs) have become common in recent years and are good candidates for endoscopic resection (ER). To achieve clear resection margins, more advanced techniques such as endoscopic submucosal dissection, endoscopic submucosal resection with a ligation device, and cap-assisted endoscopic mucosal resection are available for ER. After ER, lymphovascular invasion (LVI) is regarded as an important predictor of nodal metastasis. Previous studies have shown that small RNETs with LVI were uncommon (0-8...

INTRODUCTION: Evidence for the use of perioperative chemotherapy (PC) in upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is largely derived from level I evidence for invasive urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UCB). There has been an increase in PC for urothelial carcinoma of the bladder, as it has disseminated into clinical practice. Therefore, we sought to not only analyze trends in the utilization of PC in UTUC, but also assess factors associated with its use in a large cancer registry database...

Cancer associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are the dominant cell population in the cancer stroma. Gremlin 1 (GREM1), an antagonist of the bone morphogenetic protein pathway, is expressed by CAFs in a variety of human cancers. However, its biological significance for cancer patients is largely unknown. We applied RNA in situ hybridization (ISH) to evaluate the prognostic value of stromal GREM1 expression in a large cohort of 670 colorectal cancers (CRCs). Overall GREM1 expression in CRCs was lower than that of the matched normal mucosa, and GREM1 expression had a strong positive correlation with BMI1 and inverse correlations with EPHB2 and OLFM4...
