    The role of substance P (SP) in physiological haematopoiesis well established. However, it also seems to be important in the neoplastic transformation of bone marrow, leading to the development of acute leukaemia in children, and also metastases to bone marrow of solid tumours (particularly...

    Metastasis, also called secondary neoplastic disease, is a tumour newly formed in a site different from that of origin, as a consequence of cancer progression and dissemination largely through blood and lymphatic vessels. The ability to form metastases is the main property that distinguishes...

    Coexistence of a vasculitis and a neoplastic disease is rare and the pathogenesis is unknown. Most of these associations refer to leukocytoclastic or poliarteritis nodosa (PAN)-type vasculitis and hematological malignancies. There are few reports of vasculitis in patients with solid tumours and...

    Stem cells and cancer are inextricably linked; the process of carcinogenesis initially affects normal stem cells or their closely related progenitors and then, at some point, neoplastic stem cells are generated that propagate and ultimately maintain the process. Many, if not all, cancers contain...

    Neoplastic meningitis is a diffuse dissemination of tumour cells in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), leptomeninges, or both. It occurs in approximately 5-10% of malignant diseases, most often in breast cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, and B-cell lymphoma. Symptoms of neoplastic meningitis include...

    Tumour hypoxia has been shown to increase mutation rate, angiogenesis, and metastatic potential, and decrease response to conventional therapeutics. Improved tumour oxygenation should translate into increased treatment response. Exogenous recombinant erythropoietin (rEpo) has been recently shown...

    Myoepithelial carcinomas exhibit a wide spectrum of cytomorphologic features and diverse clinical outcomes. As a result of their morphologic heterogeneity, they can be confused easily with many tumours. Herein we report the morphological features of myoepithelial carcinoma in a 74-year-old...
