BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine whether expressions of the excision repair cross-complementing (ERCC1), thymidylate synthase (TS), and glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) predict clinical outcome in patients with advanced gastric cancer treated with fluorouracil (5-fluorouracil)/oxaliplatin chemotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study(More)
AIM Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is the most common mesenchymal neoplasm of the gastrointestinal tract.

3643 Background: The interferon induced, dsRNA-activated, protein kinase, PKR is a key regulator of translational initiation, playing an important role in the regulation of cell proliferation, apoptosis, and transformation. Increased expression of PKR has been shown to correlate with better patient prognosis in head and neck cancer ( Haines et al. Arch.(More)
4141 Background: Gastric cancer is the most common cancer in Korea. Adjuvant chemoradiation has become a standard of care in United States. We attempted to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of FP before and after postoperative chemoradiation using oral capecitabine in locally advanced gastric cancer patients.

BACKGROUND Limited data are available on the incidence and characteristics of culture-negative fever following pancreas transplantation (PTx) with anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) induction. Our study aims to better define the features of culture-negative fever, so it can be delineated from infectious fever, hopefully helping clinicians to guide antibiotic(More)
