Peritoneal dissemination is the most frequent metastasis in gastric cancer and is associated with poor prognosis. The lack of particular target antigens in gastric cancer other than HER2 has hampered the development of treatments for peritoneal dissemination of gastric cancer. We hypothesized that HER2-extracellular domain (HER2-ECD) gene transduction(More)
The prognosis of HER2-positive breast cancer has been improved by trastuzumab therapy, which features high specificity and limited side effects. However, trastuzumab-based therapy has shortcomings. Firstly, HER2-targeted therapy is only applicable to HER2-expressing tumors, which comprise only 20–25 % of primary breast cancers. Secondly, many patients who(More)
