Peritoneal metastases (PM) from colorectal cancer (CRC) are associated with poor survival. The extracellular matrix (ECM) plays a fundamental role in modulating the homing of CRC metastases to the peritoneum. The mechanisms underlying the interactions between metastatic cells and the ECM, however, remain poorly understood and the number of in vitro models available for the study of the peritoneal metastatic process is limited. Here, we show that decellularized ECM of the peritoneal cavity allows...
Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is an autosomal-dominant hereditary condition associated with germline mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli gene. Patient management involves prophylactic surgery and intensive life-long endoscopic surveillance. Diet is a major concern for FAP patients, who are generally free of symptoms before surgery but tend to have issues related to bowel function postoperatively. We hypothesized that a low-inflammatory diet based on the principles and recipes of t...

Although combination therapy is not recommended in patients with gastro-entero-pancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), this strategy is widely used in clinical practice. This network meta-analysis of randomized trials evaluates targeted therapies and somatostatin analogues in GEP advanced NETs, either alone or in combination, comparing the efficacy of different single or combined treatment strategies in terms of progression-free survival (PFS). Interventions were grouped as analogues, eve...

Background: On December 2019, an outbreak of atypical pneumonia, known as COVID-19, was identified in Wuhan, China. This disease, characterized by the rapid human-to-human transmission of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has spread rapidly in more than 200 countries. Northern Italy’s regions have been hit hard in terms of deaths. Here, we report the experience of the Pathology Department of the Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale Tumori (INT) in Milan, the first ...

Updates in classification of gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms better reflect the biological characteristics of these tumours. In the present study, we analysed the characteristics of neuroendocrine tumours that could aid in a more precise stratification of risk groups. In addition, we have highlighted the importance of grade (re)assessment based on investigation of secondary tumour lesions. Two hundred and sixty-four cases of neuroendocrine tumours of gastro-entero-pancreatic or...

This case report shows, for the first time, a patient experiencing a complete response after one dose of avelumab following extensive disease progression with prior electrochemotherapy (ECT) treatment. We suggest that ECT may help to establish a tumor microenvironment favorable to immunotherapy. Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a highly aggressive skin cancer with seldom durable chemotherapy responses. ECT has recently emerged as a potential treatment option for several malignancies, including MCC...

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Late diagnosis and metastatic dissemination contribute to its low survival rate. Since microRNA (miRNA) deregulation triggers lung carcinogenesis, miRNAs might represent an interesting therapeutic tool for lung cancer management. We identified seven miRNAs, including miR-126-3p and miR-221-3p, that are deregulated in tumours compared with normal tissues in a series of 38 non-small-cell lung cancer patients. A negative correlatio...

Selecting patients with colorectal cancer peritoneal metastases (CRC-PMs) for surgery is still a concern. Biological features have the potential to improve prognostic stratification, but their significance in this clinical setting is still unclear. We assessed the prognostic impact of primary side and KRAS/NRAS/BRAF/PIK3CA mutations in patients treated with either cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC) or CRS alone. We reviewed a prospective database of 1...
