The prognostic nutritional index (PNI) is a simple and effective parameter, initially created to evaluate preoperative nutritional conditions and surgical risk. It has been recently been found to be associated with short- and long-term outcomes of various malignancies. We performed a meta-analysis to determine the predictive significance of PNI in cancer,(More)
BACKGROUND Novel biomarkers are of particular interest for predicting cancer prognosis. This study aimed to explore the associations between enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) and patient survival in various cancers. METHODS Relevant literature was retrieved from PubMed and Web of Science databases. Pooled hazard ratios (HRs), odds ratios (ORs), and 95%(More)
OBJECTIVES Endoscopic resection (ER) is becoming an increasingly used treatment option for early gastric cancer (EGC); however, data comparing the long-term outcomes of ER and surgery are limited. Accordingly, we here aimed to perform a meta-analysis to clarify the long-term outcomes and safety of ER and surgery for EGC. METHODS Literature on the direct(More)
Crosstalk between lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) and tumor cells in the tumor microenvironment plays a crucial role in tumor metastasis. Our previous study indicated chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 1 (CXCL1) from LECs stimulates the metastasis of gastric cancer. However, the mechanism is still unclear. Here, we successfully isolated tumor-associated LECs(More)
