We aimed to assess the prognostic role of VEGF, bFGF, PDGF-AA, EGF, HGF, and E-selectin in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer treated with capecitabine and oxaliplatin (XELOX) chemotherapy protocol. Thirty-eight colorectal cancer patients who had evidence of(More)
Purpose: To determine expression levels of CD44 and ALDH1/2, known cancer stem cell (CSC) markers, in stomach adenocarcinomas and assess relationships with clinicopathologic parameters and prognosis. Methods: Eighty patients diagnosed with gastric cancer between the years 2011-2015 were included in this study of clinicopathologic characteristics,(More)
