Gene expression analyses indicate that there are 152 genes of which the expression differs significantly in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cases with positive as opposed to those with negative family history of upper gastrointestinal cancer (FHUGIC) in the high-incidence area for ESCC in northern China. However, the question as to whether there is any difference of onset age or survival rates in the familial and sporadic cases of ESCC in the area is unknown. To investigate the… CONTINUE READING
