Fat4 functions as a Hippo signaling regulator which is involved in mammalian tissue development, differentiation and tumorigenesis. Loss of Fat4 due to frequent gene mutation was detected in a variety of tumors including gastric cancer, where Fat4 was recognized as a tumor suppressor, repressing cancer cell proliferation and adhesion. However, the detailed(More)
There is no consensus in the impact of No. 10 lymph node dissection (LND) for advanced proximal gastric cancer (APGC) and the status of negative No. 4sa and No. 4sb lymph nodes (No. 4s LNs) is reportedly associated with no metastasis to No. 10 LN. We aimed to evaluate the role of No. 10 LND in APGC patients with negative No. 4s LNs and the diagnostic(More)
Inflammatory markers, including C-reactive protein (CRP) and white blood cell (WBC), are widely available in clinical practice. However, their predictive roles for infectious complications following laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy (LAG) have not been investigated. Our aim was to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of CRP concentrations and WBC counts for(More)
Determining the expression level of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) in tumor tissue is of great importance for personalized therapy in gastric cancer. Although several studies have investigated whether serum HER2 can serve as a surrogate for tissue HER2 status, results have been inconsistent. We therefore performed a meta-analysis of(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most frequently occurring malignancies with poor prognosis because of its huge heterogeneity and limited available therapeutic options. The nucleolar 58-kDa microspherule protein (MSP58) is involved in a variety of cellular processes. Though MSP58 was identified as a candidate oncogene in many cancer types, it(More)
