Poor usage of HUGO standard gene nomenclature in cancer marker
studies.

Since 1989, the Human Genome Organisation (HUGO) attempts to ensure
that for each gene there is one name and one symbol. The resulting
standard nomenclature is, however, poorly applied in clinical studies,
which impairs the efficient retrieval of information. This lack of
support is reflected in a survey of 303 articles (from 106 journals)
reporting on disseminated tumour cell detection.

Types of cancer examined: breast, liver, lung, melanoma, ovary,
prostate, bladder, cervical, colorectal, esophagus, gastric, head &
neck, pancreas, kidney, thyroid.
