BACKGROUND Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) represents one of the most malignant tumors. To improve the poor prognosis, it is necessary to diagnose esophageal SCC at early stages using new tumor markers. SEREX (serological identification of antigens by recombinant cDNA expression cloning) is suitable for large-scale screening of tumor antigens and… (More)
BACKGROUND Diagnosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) may improve with early diagnosis. Currently it is difficult to diagnose SCC in the early stage because there is a limited number of tumor markers available. RESULTS Fifty-two esophageal SCC SEREX antigens were identified by SEREX (serological identification of antigens by recombinant cDNA… (More)
We proposed that the anterior segment was divided into ventral and dorsal segments, and reclassified the right hemiliver into three segments; ventral, dorsal, and posterior segments. According to our classification we successfully performed limited resection of the right hemiliver.
