EPAS-1/HIF-2α (Endothelial PAS domain-containing protein 1/hypoxia-inducible transcription factors 2α) is a transcription factor expressed in a wide range of human cancers, including stomach cancer. Although EPAS-1 has been studied for years, its function in oncogenic transformation processes needs to be further investigated. In this study, we found that(More)
Although the clinicopathological features of cardia gastric cancer (GC) differ from those of non-cardia GC, it is unclear whether the former has poorer prognosis than the latter. The aim of this study was to compare clinicopathological characteristics and prognosis between cardia and non-cardia GC. From December 2009 to December 2011, 1633 patients who had(More)
Geographic variation has an important role in both carcinogenesis and prognosis of gastric cancer (GC). High altitude is a special hypoxic environment that is also correlated with the occurrence of GC. Different onset features and prognoses of GC in high altitude with respect to plains are rarely reported and remain unknown. This multicenter study compared(More)
Although studies on the association between the number of lymph nodes resected and prognosis in patients with pT2-4N0 stages of gastric cancer have reported consistent results, there is no consensus on the optimal number of lymph nodes to be examined for pT1N0 stage gastric cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term effect of the number of(More)
