BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Local lymph node and blood metastasis could occur at early stage of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), which may be the key factors of its recurrence and poor prognosis. However, the mechanism of ESCC metastasis is unclear. This study was to analyze the genetic changes in primary lesion and lymph node metastases of ESCC, to screen for and locate ESCC metastasis-related genes. METHODS Genomic alterations in 15 pairs of primary lesions and matched metastatic lymph… CONTINUE READING
