Stromal fibroblasts are predictors of disease-related mortality in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Abstract

The growth, invasiveness and metastasis of human cancers are determined not only by cancer cells, but also by their microenvironment. Activated stromal fibroblasts promote tumor progression by secreting growth factors. In the present study, we focused on interrelations between cancer and fibroblasts, the main component of tumor stroma. We retrospectively… (More)
