The article presents a support on the radiologic impression of a gastric mass covered by a large clot interpreted as a gastric carcinoma with liver metastasis. The author explains that, since the lesions have a gross similarity to the primary tumor, they are likely to be metastases. Moreover, the presence of a large tumor arising from the stomach or small bowel in the CT scan suggests malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).

    Background: Our previous cDNA array results indicated KIAA0101 as one of the differentially expressed genes in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) as compared with non-cancerous liver. However, it is necessary to study its expression at protein level in HCC and its biological function for HCC...

This phenomenon has been described in various malignancies with no well established causative factors, except perhaps immune...

    Abstract. There are major potential advantages in noninvasive measurement of preclinical tumour biology and therapeutic response in clinically relevant, internal body sites, notably the ability to follow outcome in individual animals rather than averaging results from groups. We have exploited...
