Building Up a High-throughput Screening Platform to Assess the Heterogeneity of HER2 Gene Amplification in Breast Cancers Giulia Ercoli1, Gianluca Lopez1,2, Camilla Ciapponi1,3, Chiara Corti1,2, Luca Despini4, Donatella Gambini5, Letterio Runza1, Concetta Blundo4, Amedeo Sciarra1, Nicola Fusco1,6 1 Heterogeneous distribution of HER2-positive cells can be observed in a subset of breast cancers and generates clinical dilemmas. Here, we introduce a reliable and cost-effective protocol to define, quantify, and compare HER2 intra-tumor genetic heterogeneity in a large series of heterogeneously processed breast cancers.

Histological Evaluation of Duodenal Biopsies from Coeliac Patients: the Need for Different Grading Criteria During Follow-up BMC Gastroenterology. Oct, 2015 | Pubmed ID: 26467310 Coeliac disease is characterised by villous atrophy, which usually normalises after gluten withdrawal. Sometimes the revaluation of duodenal histology is required during follow-up, even if the methodology for comparing duodenal histology before and after introducing a gluten-free diet is not yet established. Our aim was to evaluate a novel criterion to compare duodenal histology in coeliac disease before and after gluten withdrawal.
