Small bowel adenocarcinoma copy number profiles are more closely related to colorectal than to gastric cancers.
Small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA) is a rare cancer and consequently, the options for clinical trials are limited. As they are treated according to either a colorectal or a gastric cancer regimen and the molecular biology of a tumor is a pivotal determinant for therapy response, chromosomal copy number aberrations were compared with the colorectal and gastric adenocarcinomas. Materials and methods: A total of 85 microsatellite stable (MSS) adenocarcinomas from the stomach, colorectum and small bowel were selected from existing array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) datasets. We compared the aCGH profiles of the three tumor sites by supervised analysis and hierarchical clustering.
