OBJECTIVES To examine a population-based cohort for the association between clinicopathologic predictors of survival and immunohistochemical markers (IHC), and to assess changes in gene expression that are associated with lymphovascular invasion (LVI). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA LVI has been associated with poor survival and aggressive tumor behavior. The molecular changes responsible for the behavior of gastric cancer have yet to be determined. Characterization of IHC markers and gene… CONTINUE READING
