  • Expression of human Piwi-like genes is associated with prognosis for soft tissue sarcoma patients. Greither, Thomas; Koser, Franziska; Kappler, Matthias; Bache, Matthias; Lautenschl�ger, Christine; G�bel, Steffen; Holzhausen, Hans-J�rgen; Wach, Sven; W�rl, Peter; Taubert, Helge // BMC Cancer;2012, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p272 

    Background: Argonaute genes are essential for RNA interference, stem cell maintenance and differentiation. The Piwi-like genes, a subclass of the Argonaute genes, are expressed mainly in the germline. These genes may be re-expressed in tumors, and expression of the Piwi-like genes is associated...

    Angiosarcoma is a rare vascular tumour accounting for 2% of soft tissue sarcomas, which together represent less than 1% of all cancers. Although well described in specialist literature, it is unusual in general medical practice. We describe a case in which the initial appearance as a bruise gave...

    Kaposi's sarcoma is an unusual neoplasm that has proven to be an enigma in many ways since its first description in 1872. The lesions contain spindle cells that share features with endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells and are in all likelihood primitive mesenchymal cells that can form...

    Human sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of over 50 different malignant tumors for which very few diagnostic markers currently exist. MicroRNA (miRNA) transcript levels have been proposed for use in the diagnosis, classification and prognosis of tumors. Over 700 miRNAs are identified in humans...
