Immune cells contribute to determining the prognosis of gastric cancer. However, their exact role is less clear. We determined the prognostic significance of different immune cells in intratumoral tissue (T), stromal tissue (S), and adjacent normal tissue (N) of 166 gastric cancer cases and their interactions, including CD3+, CD4+, CD8, CD57+, CD68+,(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship of deoxycytidine kinase (dCK) protein expression and gene single-nucleotide polymorphisms to gemcitabine chemosensitivity in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC).In total, 54 patients with resectable PDAC, who received postoperative gemcitabine-based therapy, were enrolled in this(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide and the incidence is increasing as a result of growing hepatitis B and C virus infections. Primary clear cell carcinoma of the liver (PCCCL) is a rare subgroup of primary HCC, which has low metastatic potential and infrequently reported in literature.(More)
Several studies have investigated the relationship between serum Se concentration and cervical cancer, but the results were inconsistent. Thus, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the association between serum selenium levels and cervical cancer. Twelve studies investigating the association by univariate analysis and five studies(More)
OBJECTIVES Associations between serum tumor biomarkers and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) overexpression among locally advanced gastric cancer patients were yet to be determined and therefore warranted investigation. RESULTS A total of 318 patients were analyzed. The odds ratios of CA724 were 4.79 (95% CI 1.55-14.79) and 6.29 (1.40-28.19)(More)
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are thought as the source of tumor maintaining and many CSCs markers have been identified. Regarding the heterogeneity in gastric cancer (GC), TNM stage is not enough to accurately predict the prognosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical significance of CSCs markers (Lgr5, Oct4, CD133, EpCAM, CD54 and Sox2) and(More)
This study aimed to investigate the clinicopathological characteristics and survival outcomes of the subclassification of pT2 gastric cancers according to the depth of tumor involvement. We retrospectively collected clinicopathological data and survival outcomes for pT2 gastric cancer patients from 2006 to 2011. Patients were classified into the superficial(More)
