The prognosis of advanced gastric cancer remains poor, given the frequent incidence of peritoneal metastasis. beta1-integrin is known to be associated with metastasis, though few reports have addressed the expression of beta1-integrin subunits in gastric cancer at primary and peritoneal lesions from the perspective of individual cases. We studied specimens… CONTINUE READING
