Adaptor proteins, with multimodular structures, can participate in the regulation of various cellular functions. A novel adaptor protein XB130 has been implicated as a substrate and regulator of tyrosine kinase-mediated signaling and in controlling cell proliferation and apoptosis in thyroid and lung cancer cells. However, its expression and role in(More)
Laparoscopic proximal gastrectomy (LPG) has recently been applied for early gastric cancer (EGC) in the upper stomach as a minimally invasive and function-preserving surgery. This study aimed to clarify the feasibility and nutritional benefits of LPG over laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG). This was a retrospective study of 77 patients with clinical stage(More)
Precise diagnosis of lymph node metastases is essential to select therapeutic strategy for patients with gastric cancer, and rapid intraoperative diagnosis is useful for performing less invasive surgery. In this study, we focused on a known photosensitizer, 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA), and examined the feasibility of 5-ALA-induced protoporphyrin IX (PpIX)(More)
The association between intraoperative hemorrhage and the type of recurrence was examined, with a focus on peritoneal metastasis. A total of 540 patients who underwent macroscopically curative gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancers were reviewed for various clinicopathological characteristics, such as the amount of intraoperative hemorrhage and the(More)
