263 genes associated with prognostic outcome in glioma

Glioma HPA031813_gene REEP2.jpg

Gliomas are a group of brain tumors that originate from different types of glial cells in the central nervous system. The prognosis for glioma is generally poor due to limited possibilities for curative treatment. By using a systems level approach to analyze the glioma proteome with respect to clinical outcome based on genome-wide transcriptomics, 263 genes were found to be associated with prognostic outcome...Read more


205 genes associated with prognosis in melanoma

Malignant melanoma originates from the pigment-producing melanocytes in the epidermal basal layer, and is considered to develop in a multi-step process. By using a systems level approach to analyze the melanoma proteome with respect to clinical outcome based on genome-wide transcriptomics, 205 genes were found to be associated with prognostic outcome...Read more

1527 genes are found to be associated with prognosis in pancreatic cancers and 670 of them correlate with unfavourable prognosis. As part of the Pathology Atlas, release, we present brief and informative summaries of all cancers, and highlight genes with prognostic association in the different cancer forms...Read more

In this week's Pathology Atlas blog post, we highlight genes with prognostic association to ovarian cancer , as September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in the US. Ovarian cancer is the fifth most frequent cause of cancer death in women, and 50% of all ovarian cancers are diagnosed in women older than 65 years of age.

Epithelial ovarian carcinoma is one of the most common gynecologic malignancy. There are five subtypes of epithelial ovarian carcinoma, of which high-grade serous carcinoma is the most common...Read more
