from Classical to Molecular Pathology

Anna Batistatou, MD, PhD, Dimitrios Stefanou, MD, and Niki J. Agnantis, MD, PhD
Gastric cancer is one of the most common causes of cancer-related deaths, despite its decreasing incidence. Rapid progress has been achieved in recent years in elucidating tumorigenesis and a multifactorial model of human gastric carcinogenesis is currently accepted. It is now evident that the critical genetic alterations are different in diffuse and intestinal type gastric cancer. Moreover, the role of E-cadherin gene alterations is elucidated in sporadic as well as in hereditary diffuse gastric cancer. In the present review recent advances in molecular Pathology of gastric cancer are discussed..
