Gastric carcinoma classifications differ in their value for distinguishing tumors according to their morphological pattern, functional properties, and biological significance. In this study we evaluated which of three established classification systems is best correlated with the expression patterns of certain mucins. A total of 160 gastric carcinomas from Turkey and Germany were screened immunohistochemically for the expression of MUC1, MUC2, MUC5AC, and MUC6, and the results were related to… CONTINUE READING
