A retrospective pooled biomarker study to predict overall survival beyond the TNM system

K.G.Jebsen Colorectal Cancer Research Centre scientists participated with data from patients admitted to OUH in a multicenter study of >7000 stage II and III CRC recently reported in Annals of Oncology (Dienstmann et al).
Incorporation of MSI, BRAFV600E and KRAS mutation status to overall survival models with TNM staging improves the ability to precisely prognosticate in stage II and III CC patients, but only modestly increases prediction accuracy in multivariable models that include clinicopathological features, particularly in chemotherapy-treated patients.

The Norwegian Cancer Society has recently presented a research project on their home page where researchers from Oslo and Bergen have performed genetic analyses on cancer cells that have spread from the gut to the liver. The results show that the degree of genetic heterogenenity between the tumors in the gut and in the liver respectively may reveal important prognostic information. The study led by Ragnhild A. Lothe from the Department of Moleceular Oncology at OUS and Per Eystein Lønning from Haukeland University Hospital.
