BACKGROUND Despite evidence that activated macrophages act in an inflammatory microenvironment to promote gastric tumorigenesis via β-catenin signaling, the effects of β-catenin signaling on gastric cancer cell metastasis and the relationship of these cells with surrounding tumor associated macrophages have not been directly studied. METHODS Immunohistochemical staining was employed to analyze 103 patients. An invasion assay was used to evaluate the relationship between macrophages and… CONTINUE READING
