Previously, we have shown that a significant proportion of human gastric carcinomas of the diffuse type may be neuroendocrine tumors derived from the enterochromaffinlike (ECL) cell. The growth of the ECL cell is specifically regulated by gastrin, suggesting an important role of gastrin in human gastric carcinogenesis. However, patients with antral-resected… CONTINUE READING
