OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of connexin (Cx)32 and Cx43 genes in gastric cancer and precancerous lesion, and to investigate the relation between the changes of expression of Cx32 and Cx43 genes and Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection. METHODS Gastroscopy and biopsy of gastric mucosa were conducted on 33 patients with chronic superficial gastritis (CSG), 88 with precancerous lesion, and 70 with gastric cancer. Hp was detected by rapid urease test, basic fuchsin staining, and 14C… CONTINUE READING
