The article presents information on the gastric cancer. It states that gastric cancer remains one of the most common malignancies in the world. The great majority of cases are fatal because the tumors usually reached an incurable stage by the time of diagnosis. The early potentially curable stage of the disease is usually asymptomatic and consequently patients mainly present when they have developed symptoms of advanced or complicated disease. There is considerable interest in a means of detecting this common cancer at an early and curable stage.

    Background: As a pro-inflammatory cytokine, IL-33 has been demonstrated to play an important role in tumor progression. It is reported that IL-33 is highly expressed in the serum and tumor tissues of patients with gastric cancer. However, the function of IL-33 in gastric cancer remains elusive....

    Background: The metastatic rate and risk factors of splenic hilar (No.10) lymph nodes (LNs) in gastric adenocarcinoma were still variable and uncertain, and the prognostic significance of No.10 LNs was also controversial. The aim of this retrospective study was to analyze the metastatic rate,...

    It has been suggested that gastric cancer has a worse prognosis in young patients, but the data are controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the 5-year survivals after gastrectomy for gastric cancer in two groups of patients (those ≤45 years of age and those (>45 years) and to...
