OBJECTIVES Although changes of plasma fibrinogen have been documented in limited pancreatic malignant tumors, a relationship between plasma fibrinogen and pancreatic cancer in a large-scale clinical study has not been shown. METHODS Preoperative plasma levels of fibrinogen were retrospectively analyzed in 133 pancreatic cancer and 38 pancreatic benign(More)
Although changes in lipid profile have been documented in gastrointestinal cancers, the specific relationship between serum lipid levels and lymph node (N) stages in gastric cancer remains uncertain. Preoperative serum lipid concentrations were retrospectively examined in 501 patients who underwent curative resection for primary gastric cancer. Univariate(More)
BACKGROUND A soluble decoy receptor 3 (DcR3), also known as TR6 or M68, is a member of the TNF receptor family. It has been reported that high DcR3 expression occurs in many tumors. METHODS This prospective study evaluated the DcR3 tissue status by RT-PCR and its correlation with the lymph node (N) stages in 62 primary gastric cancers. RESULTS DcR3(More)
