The prognostic value of preoperative serum levels of CEA and CA19-9 in patients with gastric cancer.
TLDR
CA19-9 in the preoperative sera is a good prognostic factor in gastric cancer patients, although tumor markers continue to have only limited diagnostic usefulness.
A new macroscopic classification predicts prognosis for patient with liver metastases from colorectal cancer.
TLDR
The new macroscopic classification of Liver metastases from colorectal cancer may be valuable as a prognostic factor reflecting the biologic behavior of liver metastases.
Incidence, diagnosis and significance of multiple gastric cancer
TLDR
The incidence of multiple cancer was relatively low, indicating that several microscopic lesions might have been overlooked in this series, and some microscopic cancers might not invariably be destined to grow into clinically significant lesions over 10 or more years.
The role of radical gastrectomy with systematic lymphadenectomy for the diagnosis and treatment of primary gastric lymphoma.
TLDR
Surgery alone is adequate treatment for stage IE or pure MALT lymphoma, provided that the staging is performed after radical gastrectomy, and patients who could be adequately treated with surgery alone are identified.
The surgical treatment of cancer of the stomach.
TLDR
From 1965 to 1977, 2421 patients with gastric cancer underwent operation in the authors' hospital, and thirty five per cent of the patients who underwent resection from 1957 to 1963 required an enlarged total gastrectomy, compared with 15% in the present series.
Lewis blood group-related antigen expression in normal gastric epithelium, intestinal metaplasia, gastric adenoma, and gastric carcinoma.
TLDR
Changes in Lewis antigen expression in intestinal metaplasia, adenomas, and intestinal type adenocarcinomas suggest that altered expression of Lewis blood group-related antigens may correlate with cell transformation processes.
Plasma concentration of matrix metalloproteinase 9 in gastric cancer
TLDR
The clinical significance of plasma concentration of matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP‐9) was investigated in patients with gastric cancer was investigated and it was found to be low.
Postoperative staging of gastric carcinoma. A comparison between the UICC stage classification and the 12th edition of the Japanese General Rules for Gastric Cancer Study.
TLDR
The new edition of the GRGCS can be recommended as a useful staging manual for gastric cancer and is evaluated by comparison with the TNM system.
