Abstract

The poliferative Ki-67 index could represent an excellent predictive factor for survival in patients with c-kit-positive stromal gastrointestinal tumors. Confirmation and an adequate cut-off level should be the main objectives for future prospective studies, mostly focused on the appropriate selection of optimal candidates to imatinib-mesylate-based treatment.
