BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Neoadjuvant therapy is applied to improve the prognosis associated with advanced gastric cancer. Only patients with a major response seem to have a survival benefit. Predictive markers to allow individualisation of treatment could be helpful. We examined the association of survivin protein expression with histopathologic response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy and prognosis in patients with gastric cancer. METHODS Forty patients with gastric cancer received neoadjuvant… CONTINUE READING
