Molecular characterization of tumors meeting diagnostic criteria for the non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP)

“Follicular variant” papillary thyroid carcinomas (FV-PTC) that do not histologically invade have a miniscule risk of metastasis, and thus been reclassified as a tumor of low malignant potential, the non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with …

Significant relationship between the LAT1 expression pattern and chemoresistance in ovarian clear cell carcinoma

L-type amino acid transporter 1 (LAT1) is a Na+-independent neutral amino acid transporter that plays a key role in cancer cell growth and survival. To determine the significance of LAT1 in prognosis and resistance to chemotherapy in ovarian …

A novel algorithm for better distinction of primary mucinous ovarian carcinomas and mucinous carcinomas metastatic to the ovary

Primary mucinous ovarian carcinomas (MOC) are notoriously difficult to distinguish from mucinous carcinomas metastatic to the ovary (mMC). Studies performed on small cohorts reported algorithms based on tumor size and laterality to aid in …

Integrating histopathology, immune biomarkers, and molecular subgroups in solid cancer: the next step in precision oncology

For many years, the gold standard cancer grading and staging had focused on the characteristics of the cancer cells and often disregarded the non-tumoral cell compartments. The expansion of research on the tumor immune microenvironment, the …

The Official Journal of the European Society of Pathology

Mission statement: To advance the scientific basis of human pathology by the publication (encouragement and dissemination) of high quality research (including molecular and translational studies) and thereby contribute to patient care.

Manuscripts of original studies reinforcing the evidence base of modern diagnostic pathology, using immunocytochemical, molecular and ultrastructural techniques, will be welcomed. In addition, papers on critical evaluation of diagnostic criteria but also broadsheets and guidelines with a solid evidence base will be considered. Consideration will also be given to reports of work in other fields relevant to the understanding of human pathology as well as manuscripts on the application of new methods and techniques in pathology. Submission of purely experimental articles is discouraged but manuscripts on experimental work applicable to diagnostic pathology are welcomed. Biomarker studies are welcomed but need to abide by strict rules (e.g. REMARK) of adequate sample size and relevant marker choice. Single marker studies on limited patient series without validated application will as a rule not be considered. Case reports will only be considered when they provide substantial new information with an impact on understanding disease or diagnostic practice.
