Background The mechanisms underlying peritoneal metastasis (PM) after curative gastrectomy for gastric cancer (GC) are not well elucidated. This study assessed whether viable cancer cells, including cancer stemlike cells (CSCs), were present in the remnant stomach immediately before gastrointestinal (GI) tract reconstruction because these could be a source of PM after gastrectomy.

Purpose Tumor stem cell surface marker CD44v6, a member of the CD44 protein family, is causally involved in the metastasis of cancer. Little is known about the functions of CD44v6 in gastric cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of CD44v6 and investigate its functional roles.

With a meta-analysis and narrative review, we evaluated the clinical and prognostic role of all CD44 family proteins in gastric cancer (GC). Literatures published up to August 2014 were searched on PubMed. Among the 37 eligible studies (6606 patients), 34 were included in meta-analysis, and 10 were subjected to narrative review. With meta-analysis, standard CD44 (CD44s) was demonstrated to predict reduced overall survival (OS) (HR = 1.93, 95% CI: 1.58-2.34, PHR = 0.0222) and disease free surviva...

Background Isoform switching of CD44 is associated with epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) in several cancers; however, the clinical implications of this remain unclear for colorectal cancer (CRC). Methods We measured expression levels of E-cadherin, vimentin, CD44 standard (CD44s) and CD44 variant 9 (CD44v9) transcripts in 14 CRC cell lines and 150 CRC patients. We determined EMT and CD44 status by calculating vimentin/E-cadherin and CD44s/CD44v9 expression ratios, respectively. Associa...

Every cancer cell is 鈥渄ifferent鈥濃攚ithin one and the same tumor, between different lesions originating from the same tumor, among different patients suffering from the same tumor type, and certainly between different tumor types.

Background For several types of cancer, including gastric cancer (GC), tumor cells at the invasive front are considered to have a more aggressive behavior compared with those in the more central region. The aim of the present study was to analyze the expression of MMP-7, laminin 纬2 and EGFR in a large number of GCs and to investigate how these expression patterns correlate with clinicopathologic parameters, infiltrative patterns, histology or mucin phenotype.

Treatment planning for oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is based on the clinical TNM (Tumor, Node and Metastasis) classification. This system operates on the assumption that small tumours without clinical spread have a better prognosis than larger tumours with metastases. However, it is a well-known fact that some tumours with the same clinical staging show different growth patterns and clinical behaviour. This makes the prognosis for patients with OSCC difficult to predict on the basis of cl...

Background null Gastric adenocarcinoma with peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) is therapy resistant and leads to poor survival. To study PC in depth, there is an urgent need to develop representative PC-derived cell lines and metastatic models to study molecular mechanisms of PC and for preclinical screening of new therapies. null Methods null PC cell lines were developed from patient-derived PC cells. The tumorigenicity and metastatic potential were investigated by subcutaneously (PDXs) and orthoto...

BACKGROUND CD44 variant 9 (CD44v9) has been reported to suppress reactive oxygen spices (ROS) in association with antioxidant factors such as glutathione (GSH) and glutathione peroxidase 2 (GPx2), resulting in promoted tumor growth. METHODS CD44v9 and GPx2 expression were investigated by immunohistochemistry in resected specimens from 193 gastric cancer (GC) patients without preoperative chemotherapy and in pretreatment biopsy specimens from 29 GC patients with preoperative chemotherapy. We anal...

CD44 is a cell surface adhesion molecule, which is overexpressed on cancer stem cells. The interaction of CD44 with hyaluronan is responsible for tumor development, metastasis, and expression of the chemoresistant phenotype. The overexpression of CD44 impedes the cytotoxic effect of chemotherapy medications in various cancers. Therefore, the high expression of CD44 is associated with a poor prognosis in affected patients. This high expression of CD44 in various cancers has provided an ample oppo...

Numerous researches have extensively studied factors such as microRNAs that lead to cancer. Thus, the current study's purpose is to investigate the biological consequences of hsa-miR-451b inhibition on the properties and functions of gastric cancer stem-like cells. First, gastric cancer stem-like cells were transfected by hsa-miR-451b inhibitor then we used real-time RT-PCR to evaluate its effect on the expression of hsa-miR-451b and two of its direct target genes, Stemness markers such as KLF4,...

BACKGROUND Gastric cancer (GC) is considered one of the most lethal malignancies worldwide, which is accompanied by a poor prognosis. Although reports regarding the importance of cancer stem cell (CSC) markers in gastric cancer progression have rapidly developed over the last few decades, their clinicopathological and prognostic values in gastric cancer still remain inconclusive. Therefore, the current meta-analysis aimed to quantitatively re-evaluate the association of CSC markers expression, o...

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are self-renewing cells that facilitate tumor initiation, promote metastasis, and enhance cancer therapy resistance. Transcriptomic analyses across many cancer types have revealed a prominent association between stemness and immune signatures, potentially implying a biological interaction between such hallmark features of cancer. Emerging experimental evidence has substantiated the influence of CSCs on immune cells, including tumor-associated macrophages, myeloid-derived...

Helicobacter pylori causes persistent infection in the gastric epithelium of more than half of the world's population, leading to the development of severe complications such as peptic ulcer diseases, gastric cancer, and gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. Several virulence factors, including cytotoxin-associated gene A (CagA), which is translocated into the gastric epithelium via the type 4 secretory system (T4SS), have been indicated to play a vital role in disease devel...

The use of biomarkers in diagnosis, therapy and prognosis has gained increasing interest over the last decades. In particular, the analysis of biomarkers in cancer patients within the pre- and post-therapeutic period is required to identify several types of cells, which carry a risk for a disease progression and subsequent post-therapeutic relapse. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are a subpopulation of tumor cells that can drive tumor initiation and can cause relapses. At the time point of tumor initia...
