squamous cell carcinoma

The transcriptomes of recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa squamous cell carcinoma also suggested a role for inflammation in disease development.

Two new studies have uncovered expression-defined T cell subsets that seem to coincide with better or worse outcomes in breast cancer or non-small cell lung cancer.

New tumor profiling papers stemming from prior clinical trials led to informative mutations in early-stage, ER+/HER2- breast cancer and lung squamous cell carcinoma.

With integrated data for thousands of TCGA tumors, teams explored cancer subtypes, searched for prognostic insights, began mapping immune cell interactions, and more.

Exome sequences from thousands of Chinese individuals with or without esophageal squamous cell carcinoma led to six new germline risk variants.

A new analysis hints that adenocarcinomas or squamous cell carcinomas may have certain overlapping expression patterns, regardless of the tissue of origin.

Exome sequences and copy number patterns suggest lung adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are each marked by specific somatic mutations and driver genes.

The kit targets several mRNA biomarkers and is the first in a series of salivary diagnostic kits the firm plans to develop for early-stage disease diagnostics.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — A group of pharmaceutical companies, research groups, foundations, and the clinical sequencing firm Foundation Medicine have joined to initiate a multi-drug, multi-arm, biomarker-driven clinical trial for patients with squamous cell carcinoma called the Lung Cancer Master P

A team led by clinical researchers from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, has published a peer-reviewed study describing the development and validation of a gene expression-based predictor of lung cancer histology for formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples.
