Abstract

Folate deficiency and its association with cancer have been studied in the literature, but its clinical impact is still unknown. Folate deficiency and its result on gastric cancer is a mysterious part of oncology, with ongoing studies hopefully clarifying its impact on gastric cancer management. Lee et al studied folate deficiency and its impact on staging and clinical results. Here we try to contribute to the field by expressing our own thoughts about the paper.
