Diagnosis No. of cases DEK expression Positive rate (%) Strongly positive rate (%)
- + ++ +++
Gastric cancers 172 51 17 67 37 70.3%** 60.5%**
Dysplasia 36 21 8 7 0 41.7%** 19.4%**
Normal 27 22 5 0 0 18.5% 0

**P < 0.01, compared with normal mucosa and dysplasia of gastric. Dysplasia: gastric dysplasia; Cancer: gastric cancer; Positive rate: percentage of positive cases with ‘+’, ‘++’, and ‘+++’ staining score; Strongly positive rate: percentage of positive cases with ‘++’ and ‘+++’ staining score.
