    Background and aims. Microsatellite instability (MSI) occurring from defects in mismatch repair has been found to be associated with about 15% of sporadic colorectal carcinomas. This study examined the incidence of MSI in early-onset sporadic colorectal carcinomas and the role of methylation of...

    Introduction: Carcinosarcoma (CS) is an infrequent neoplasm composed of a carcinomatous and a sarcomatous element. Its molecular pathogenesis is poorly understood. In this study, we investigated the disturbances in the immunohistochemical expression of p53 and mismatch repair (MMR) proteins, as...
