  • Metastatic cancer to the stomach. Campoli, Paulo Moacir de Oliveira; Ejima, Flávio Hayato; Cardoso, Daniela Medeiros Milhomem; da Silva, Osterno Queiroz; Filho, Jales Benevides Santana; de Queiroz Barreto, Paulo Adriano; Machado, Márcio Martins; Mota, Eliane Duarte; Filho, João Alves Araujo; Alencar, Rita de Cássia G.; da Mota, Orlando Milhomem // Gastric Cancer;Mar2006, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p19 

    Background. Metastases in the stomach are rare. The increased use of esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), associated with better treatment results for malignancies, requires them to be acknowledged. The aim of this study was to describe a series of cases of metastasis to the stomach, their primary...

    Vezatin (VEZT), an adherens junctions transmembrane protein, was identified as a putative tumor suppressor in our previous study. However, the role of VEZT in tumorigenesis remains elusive. We aimed to clarify its epigenetic regulation and biological functions in gastric cancer. In this study,...
