The article discusses the results of a study concerning the significance of aberrant CHFR methylation for clinical response to microtubule inhibitors in gastric cancer. The results suggest that the assessment of CHFR methylation status may be a clinically useful to predict the response of gastric cancers to treatment with microtubule inhibitors.
