BRAF Pyrosequencing Analysis Aided by a Lookup Table.
Conclusions Using the lookup table and confirmatory virtual pyrogram, we unambiguously solved clinical pyrograms of the complex mutations V600K (c.1798_1799delGTinsAA), V600R (c.1798_1799delGTinsAG), V600D (c.1799_1800delTGinsAT), V600E (c.1799_1800delTGinsAA), and V600_K601delinsE (c.1799_1801delTGA). In addition, we used the approach to hypothesize and confirm a new mutation in human melanoma, V600_K601delinsEI (c.1799_1802delTGAAinsAAAT).

Immunohistochemical Evaluation of GATA-3 Expression in ER-Negative Breast Carcinomas.
Conclusions Our data suggest that GATA-3 is, so far, the best breast-specific immunomarker, especially when encountering ER-negative metastatic breast carcinomas.

Pathology and medical malpractice: academic and trainee empirical review of cases by state of Texas physicians.
Conclusions: This study provides further evidence that physicians do not understand the legal rule of negligence. Pathologists have a poor understanding of negligence and cannot accurately predict a jury verdict. There is significant divergence from the single standard of care assumption. Alternative methods to provide appropriate compensation and to establish physician accountability should be explored. Additional education about medical negligence is needed.

Quantitative assessment of mutant allele burden in solid tumors by semiconductor-based next-generation sequencing.
Conclusions: NGS-based mutation screening provides a quantitative assessment comparable to that of PE-MALDI. In addition, NGS also allows for a high degree of multiplexing and uses nanogram quantities of DNA, thereby preserving precious material for future analysis. Furthermore, this study provides evidence that H&E-based morphologic assessment of tumor burden does not correlate to actual tumor mutant allele burden frequency.
