ICPC Korea University Team Proteogenomically Characterizes Early-Onset Gastric Cancer

The incidence of early-onset gastric cancer (EOGC), a type of cancer that occurs in younger patients and found throughout the stomach, is markedly elevated in the Republic of Korea. As a country with the highest rates worldwide in both sexes, there is a need to identify molecular signatures that can be used to diagnose and treat EOGC.


Proteogenomics Approach Identifies DPYSL3 Gene in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Claudin-Low (CLOW) tumors are classified as a subset of triple-negative breast cancers and account for a minority of breast cancer cases. But until now, there has been little study of their unique biological features. Understanding the biology of CLOW tumors is important for designing targeted therapeutic agents to treat highly aggressive breast cancers.
