Identification of distinct gene expression profiles between esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and adjacent normal epithelial tissues.


Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is a predominant type of esophageal cancer, which is a malignant tumor originating from the esophageal mucosa or gland and is aggressive with poor prognosis. Identification of new gene expression patterns would be helpful for providing new targets for the early detection and treatment of ESCC patients. In the… (More)
