Discovery of the genes responsible for esophageal cancer common among Japanese

A Japanese research group has now discovered the genetic mutations responsible for esophageal cancer frequently found among Japanese. They base their discovery on a genomic analysis of 144 Japanese esophageal cancer patients, the largest of its scale so far. The study findings are expected to contribute to the development of new medical treatments with fewer side effects and tailored drug therapies….
