The benefit of microsatellite instability is attenuated by chemotherapy in stage II and stage III gastric cancer: Results from a large cohort with subgroup analyses
We previously reported that the prognosis of microsatellite instability high (MSI‐H) gastric cancer is similar to that of MSI‐low/microsatellite stable (MSI‐L/MSS) gastric cancer. The reason for thisExpand
