Abstract

To elucidate the stromal characteristics in gastric carcinoma, we investigated the localization of some types of collagen fibers which are main fibrous compornents in the interstitial connective tissue and various proteoglicans such as hyaluronic acid (HS) and chondroitin sulfate (CS) using the immunohistochemical and enzymatic histochemical techniques.
