Impact of proteomics investigations on gastric cancer treatment and diagnosis
Gastroenterology and Hepatology from Bed to Bench,
Gastric cancer is one of the epidemics diseases with a high mortality rate in different countries. It causes many health problems in the world every year. It affects the digestive tract, and in advanced cases, its treatment has many difficulties. Early detection of cancer in different parts of the gastrointestinal tract can be accompanied by inexpensive treatment. As cancer cells make different biomarkers during different stages of the disease, researchers are looking for different biomarkers for gastrointestinal cancers detection. On the other hand, with the advent of advanced techniques such as proteomics and the discovery of a large number of proteins related to gastrointestinal cancer, finding the role of these proteins is essential. Indeed, the function of large amounts of these proteins has remained unknown.
Data from databases such as genes and proteins associated with gastrointestinal cancers were collected and the proteomic data of these databases were analyzed to find a clear perspective of the impact of proteomics in gastric cancer management.
The role of heat shock proteins, metabolic proteins, membrane binding proteins, galectins, prohibitins, S100 proteins, and many different types of proteins in gastric cancer was highlighted. This article reviewed proteomic researches in cancer-related areas of the gastric cancer in order to evaluate the findings of researchers.
