Myogenin, AP2[beta], NOS-1, and HMGA2 Are Surrogate Markers of Fusion Status in Rhabdomyosarcoma: A Report From the Soft Tissue Sarcoma Committee of the Children’s Oncology Group
ER Rudzinski, JR Anderson, ER Lyden, JA Bridge… – The American Journal of …, 2014
Abstract Pediatric rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is traditionally classified on the basis of the
histologic appearance into alveolar (ARMS) and embryonal (ERMS) subtypes. The majority
of ARMS contain a PAX3-FOXO1 or PAX7-FOXO1 gene fusion, but about 20% do not. …

Genotoxic Changes to Rodent Cells Exposed in Vitro to Tungsten, Nickel, Cobalt and Iron
S Bardack, CL Dalgard, JF Kalinich, CE Kasper – International Journal of …, 2014
… A recent report demonstrated that a military-grade composition of tungsten, nickel, and cobalt
induced a highly-aggressive, metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma when implanted into the leg muscle
of laboratory rats to simulate a shrapnel wound. The early genetic changes occurring …
