Moritz Jesinghaus, Maxime Schmitt, Corinna Lang, Marianne Reiser, Alexander Scheiter, Björn Konukiewitz, Katja Steiger, Miguel Silva, Markus Tschurtschenthaler, Sebastian Lange, Sebastian Foersch, Karl F Becker, Dieter Saur, Helmut Friess, Kathrin Halfter, Jutta Engel, Melanie Boxberg, Nicole Pfarr, Dirk Wilhelm, Wilko Weichert,

The 2019 World Health Organization (WHO) classification of colorectal carcinoma (CRC) profoundly reclassified CRC subtypes and introduces tumor budding as a second major grading criterion, while condensing conventional grade into a 2-tiered system. So far it remains largely unexplored how these parameters interact with each other and whether they truly ... Read more >>
