Sample text

Some oncogenes (such as myc, myb, and p53) may prevent apoptosis so that cells are immortalized. 16,17 A schematic of such a growth factor pathway is shown in Figure 1-4. Regardless of the type of oncogene, four mechanisms of activation have been postulated: (1) point mutation, as by chemicals or radiation; (2) chromosomal rearrangements; (3) gene amplification; and (4) retroviral insertion. During the lifetime of an organism, many such “hits” to the genomic DNA of cells occur. When cells can no longer repair this damage, cancer can occur.

Many of these recurrent chromosome aberrations are associated with histopathological or immunological subgroups and with response to therapy. In addition to directing basic research and the discovery of underlying gene involvement, these associations are now widely used as important diagnostic and prognostic aids during the evaluation of human cancers, with consequent improvements in the clinical management of patients. Patients with good prognosis can be spared unnecessary treatment, and, conversely, those patients whose cytogenetic abnormalities indicate poor prognosis can receive more aggressive treatments to improve the probability of positive outcomes.

As recently as 10 years ago, non-coding DNA was brazenly called “junk DNA” and was thought to be an anachronism inherited from our evolutionary forebears. 45-48 Despite the rudimentary stage of clinical development, we anticipate that the current pace of technological advancement should place these and other technologies at the forefront of cancer management during the next decade. SUMMARY We can state with confidence that the genetic basis of cancer is beyond question. It is estimated that five or more mutations are required for overt transformation, Genetic Basis of Cancer CHAPTER 2 and genomic instability seems to be necessary to establish a self-renewing population of cells whose progeny expand to cause clinical disease.
