Background Hunter syndrome is an X-linked disorder caused by a deficit of the lysosomal enzyme iduronate-2-sulfatase and is associated with many disorders. Patients with Hunter syndrome often develop inguinal hernias in early childhood and undergo Potts’ method, laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure (LPEC), or laparoscopic direct suture.
Accumulating evidence has indicated that immune regulatory cells are involved in the establishment of tumoral immune evasion. However, the role of regulatory B cells (Bregs) in this remains unclear. Here, we identified a role for Bregs in immune evasion in gastric cancer (GC) patients. The frequency of peripheral Bregs was significantly higher in GC patients than in healthy controls (P = 0.0023). Moreover, the frequency of CD19+CD24hiCD27+ B cells in GC tissue was significantly higher than in pe...
Purpose Postoperative complications worsen the prognosis of gastric cancer patients. The Clavien–Dindo classification is used to evaluate postoperative complications. The prognostic significance of the comprehensive complication index (CCI), a new tool for evaluating postoperative complications, remains unclear.
Background How the interval between surgery and S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy (ACT), and S-1 relative dose intensity (RDI) affect prognosis in patients with stage II/III gastric cancer who undergo gastrectomy with D2 lymph node dissection followed by S-1 ACT is unclear.
Purpose The association between the preoperative absolute neutrophil count (NC), lymphocyte count (LC), and monocyte count (MC) in the peripheral blood and the prognosis of gastric cancer (GC) patients has not been investigated widely.
Background High red cell distribution width (RDW) is reportedly provoked by chronic inflammation and poor nutritional status; high pre-operative RDW is related to poor prognosis in some cancers. However, the prognostic significance of post-operative RDW in gastric cancer (GC) patients is unclear.
Purpose The prognostic significance of the peripheral platelet count × serum C-reactive protein level multiplier (P-CRP) has not been widely studied in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC).
Purpose The platelet distribution width (PDW) is reportedly useful as a prognostic indicator for some cancers. However, its prognostic significance in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is unclear.
