Observation in this study of a 5-year recurrence rate of 20 per cent in patients with negative nodes and close to 70 per cent in those with positive nodes emphasizes the inability of conventional radical surgery to eradicate all cancer cells because of their dissemination prior to or at the time of operation. More extensive regional dissection, carried to the limit of feasibility and sensibility, has not produced a substantial improvement in results".

Patients with gastric cancer had significantly different level of gastric juice miR-21 and miR -106a compared with patients with benign gastric diseases. The areas under ROC curves were up to 0.969 and 0.871 for miR-21 and miR - 106a , respectively. Certain miRNAs including miR-21 and miR -106a in gastric juice can be used as biomarkers for the detecting of gastric cancer with a satisfactory specificity and sensitivity".file://C:Documents and SettingsutenteDesktopSenology_March.htm 12/03/2013
