Perioperative chemotherapy with a docetaxel-based triplet should be considered the new standard of care for resectable gastric or GEJ adenocarcinoma.
This study reviewed our experience about the technique evolution and outcome of using LDG for the patients with clinical stage (c-stage) I gastric cancers.MethodsA retrospective review of the patients undergoing LDG for c-stage I gastric cancers at a medical center of Taiwan was performed. The demographics, peri-operative parameters, reconstruction methods, morbidities, pathologic and oncological outcomes were analyzed.ResultsA total of 100 patients with c-stage I gastric cancers between October 2005 and September 2016 were enrolled. Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) was performed in the initial 69 cases. Tota…
AbstractA 48-year-old Japanese female with left hypochondralgia presented at our hospital. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) revealed gastric cancers and carpeting fundic gland polyposis (FGPs) withoutHelicobacter pylori infection. Computed tomography showed multiple liver metastases. Total colonoscopy revealed a colonic tubular adenoma but not polyposis. She was diagnosed as having advanced gastric cancer with liver metastasis and received chemotherapy. Her mother had died from gastric cancer, and her elderly brother and niece had FGPs as revealed by EGD. Thus, the pedigree was diagnosed as gastric adenocarcinoma and proxi…

Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are important factors in the response of cancer cells to thermo- and chemotherapy. Transient hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (HIPEC) therapy results in the upregulation of HSP expression, which may compromise the efficacy of additional anticancer treatments. The aim of the present study was to monitor the kinetics of HSP expression in tumor cells and patients with gastric cancer following HIPEC. Thus, in vitro and in vivo experiments were conducted to investigate the expression of two HSP family members, HSP70 and HSP90. Cells from t…
The aim of this study was to compare the efficacies of the XELOX and DOS regimens as preoperative chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced gastric cancer.

Apatinib is an oral TKI with anti-angiogenesis properties, and it is currently approved for the treatment of advanced gastric cancer in China. This agent has also been tested in other human solid tumors, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Since the combination of chemotherapy and an anti-angiogenesis agent has been shown to be feasible strategy in NSCLC, it is conceivable that a similar approach combining apatinib with chemotherapy may yield clinical…
ConclusionsTo avoid underestimating expression status, biopsies must be taken from MuP for HER2, InP for EGFR, and both proportions for c-MET.
Conclusions: The results of this study suggest that surgery combined with systemic chemotherapy in selected patients with stage IV gastric cancer can improve survival.Dig Surg
The value of adjuvant chemotherapy in T2N0 gastric cancer (GC) remains controversial. The aim of this retrospective study is to define a high-risk subgroup of pathological T2N0 GC patients and examine the impact of adjuvant chemotherapy on overall survival (OS). A total of 225 patients underwent R0 resection for T2N0 gastric adenocarcinoma between 2002 and 2012 and 51/225 (22.7%) of these received adjuvant chemotherapy. Multivariate Cox regression identified tumor location in the Upper1/3 of the stomach (peast one of the independent risk factor listed above, and we found that adjuvant chemotherapy signifi…
Background: Pembrolizumab showed promising antitumor activity and a manageable safety profile in patients with pretreated G/GEJ cancer in KEYNOTE-012 and KEYNOTE-059. KEYNOTE-061 (NCT02370498) was a global, open-label phase 3 study of pembrolizumab vs paclitaxel for previously treated advanced G/GEJ adenocarcinoma that progressed after first-line chemotherapy containing platinum and fluoropyrimidine.
ConclusionResults indicated that SOX130 was feasible in Japanese patients with advanced gastric cancer.
