The Serum Assay of Soluble CD44 Standard, CD44 Variant 5, and CD44 Variant 6 in Patients with Gastric Cancer.

Abstract

PURPOSE Alternative splicing of CD44 and aberrant levels of soluble CD44 (sCD44) protein in the serum of cancer patients has been correlated to tumor progression and metastasis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the concentrations, and the prognostic potential of sCD44s, sCD44v5 and sCD44v6, in patients with gastric cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS… (More)
