Hepatic resection (HR) is the only option offering a potential cure for patients with synchronous colorectal cancer liver metastases (SCRLM). The optimal timing of HR for SCRLM is still controversial. This study aimed to determine whether simultaneous HR is similar to staged resection regarding the morbidity and mortality rates in patients with SCRLM. Four(More)
In gastric carcinoma, high expression of PRL-3, a protein tyrosine phosphatase, is associated with lymph node metastasis. We studied the relationship between PRL-3 expression and peritoneal metastasis in gastric carcinoma. Immunohistochemical analysis using the anti-PRL-3 antibody was done in 639 patients with gastric carcinoma including 89 with peritoneal(More)
BACKGROUND Zonulin is a newly discovered protein that has an important role in the regulation of intestinal permeability. Our previous study showed that probiotics can decrease the rate of infectious complications in patients undergoing colectomy for colorectal cancer. OBJECTIVE The objective was to determine the effects of the perioperative(More)
PURPOSE Total mesorectal excision with fluorouracil-based preoperative chemoradiotherapy and postoperative chemotherapy is a standard treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer. This study investigated the addition of oxaliplatin with and without preoperative radiotherapy. METHODS In this multicenter, open-label, phase III trial, we randomly assigned(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) in patients with early gastric cancer (EGC) to determine whether LADG is an acceptable alternative to open distal gastrectomy (ODG). BACKGROUND LADG combined with less than D2 or D2 lymphadenectomy for EGC is still a controversial surgical intervention for its(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Although the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in gastric cancer has been extensively studied, the data of survival benefit are still controversial. The purpose of this work was to assess the effectiveness of neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery in patients with gastric cancer. METHODS We searched systematically electronic(More)
BACKGROUND Colorectal liver metastases (CLM) occur frequently and postoperative intestinal infection is a common complication. Our previous study showed that probiotics could decrease the rate of infectious complications after colectomy for colorectal cancer. To determine the effects of the perioperative administration of probiotics on serum zonulin levels(More)
High expression of PRL-3, a protein tyrosine phosphatase, is proved to be associated with lymph node metastasis in gastric carcinoma from previous studies. In this paper, we examined the relationship between PRL-3 expression and peritoneal metastasis in gastric carcinoma. We applied the artificial miRNA (pCMV-PRL3miRNA), which is based on the murine miR-155(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) on growth of gastric cancer and its possible mechanism. METHODS Heterotopic tumors were induced by subcutaneously injection of SGC-7901 cells in nude mice. Tumor growth was measured by calipers in two dimensions. Tumor angiogenesis was determined with tumor microvessel density (MVD) by(More)
Research on molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis plays an important role in diagnosing and treating gastric cancer. Metabolic profiling may offer the opportunity to understand the molecular mechanism of carcinogenesis and help to non-invasively identify the potential biomarkers for the early diagnosis of human gastric cancer. The aims of this study were(More)
