Whole-genome sequencing of liver cancers identifies etiological influences on mutation patterns and recurrent mutations in chromatin regulators
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. We sequenced and analyzed the whole genomes of 27 HCCs, 25 of which were associated with hepatitis B or CExpand

Increased expression of sialyl Lewisx antigen correlates with poor survival in patients with colorectal carcinoma: clinicopathological and immunohistochemical study.
We have previously shown that sialyl Lewisx antigen (sLex) (NeuAc alpha 2-3Gal beta 1-4(Fuc alpha 1-3)GlcNAC-R) has an important functional role in defining the invasion and metastasis of humanExpand

Total Gastrectomy With Dissection of Lymph Nodes Along the Splenic Artery: A Pancreas-Preserving Method
Background: In Japan, the tail and body of the pancreas are generally removed for dissection of lymph nodes along the splenic artery. A new pancreas-preserving method was developed to decrease theExpand
