DETECT DEciphering geneTic hEterogeneity in ColorecTal cancer: in situ and circulating cell subtypes identification Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the 2nd most mortal cancer worldwide, despite advances in healthcare and screening, CRC remains a major public health problem. Tumor drug resistance dues to inter and intratumor heterogeneity (ITH) is the mainly cause [...]

Search for genetic factors implicated in Hirschsprung Associated Enterocolitis


Search for genetic factors implicated in Hirschsprung Associated Enterocolitis Search for genetic factors implicated in Hirschsprung Associated Enterocolitis Hirschsprung's disease (HSCR) is a congenital gut malformation caused by a lack of innervation that affects about 1 in 5000 live births [1]. One of the most serious complications is constituted by enterocolitis [...]
