Overexpression of G6PD is associated with poor clinical outcome in gastric cancer.
Summary of "Overexpression of G6PD is associated with poor clinical outcome in gastric cancer."
This study aims to investigate the expression and significance of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) in human gastric cancer progression and prognosis. Using immunohistochemistry and real-time RT-PCR assay, we identified abnormally elevated expression of G6PD in gastric cancer tissues compared to paired normal stomach mucosa tissues in 24 patients (p < 0.05). In order to investigate the correlations between G6PD and the clinicopathological features of gastric cancer, the expression of G6PD in 167 patients with gastric cancer were detected by immunohistochemistry, and the results showed that overexpression of G6PD was associated with the size of tumor (p = 0.039), depth of invasion (p = 0.039), lymph node metastasis (p = 0.044), distant metastasis (p = 0.003), TNM stage (p = 0.030), and survival rate (p = 0.010). Further, Cox multivariates analysis indicated that G6PD expression level was an independent prognostic factor for patients after radical resection (p = 0.013). In conclusion, overexpression of G6PD is closely related to progression of gastric cancer, and might be regarded as an independent predictor of poor prognosis for gastric cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Gastric Inhibitory Polypeptide
A gastrointestinal peptide hormone of about 43-amino acids. It is found to be a potent stimulator of INSULIN secretion and a relatively poor inhibitor of GASTRIC ACID secretion.
Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.
Vagotomy, Proximal Gastric
Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.
Parietal Cells, Gastric
Rounded or pyramidal cells of the GASTRIC GLANDS. They secrete HYDROCHLORIC ACID and produce gastric intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein that binds VITAMIN B12.
A synthetic methylprostaglandin E1 analog that reduces gastric acid secretion and enhances the gastric mucus-bicarbonate barrier. It is effective in the therapy of gastric ulcers and gives significant protection against NSAID-induced gastric mucosal damage. The drug also prevents cyclosporin A-induced damage to endocrine and exocrine pancreatic secretions. It shows a low order of acute toxicity and there is no evidence of embryotoxicity, fetotoxicity, teratogenicity, or mutagenicity in animal studies.
