BACKGROUND AND AIMS Correlation between the gross classification of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and its vascular invasion or intrahepatic metastasis has been reported previously. Because E-cadherin-mediated epithelial cell-to-cell adhesion is thought to suppress cancer cell invasion, the present study was performed to analyze the correlation between E-cadherin expression and the gross classification of HCC. METHODS Thirty-six resected solitary HCC <6 cm in diameter were each classified as… CONTINUE READING
