  • [Title] Chemotherapy as a component of multimodal therapy for gastric carcinoma.
  • Prognosis of locally advanced gastric cancer remains poor, and several multimodality strategies involving surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation have been tested in clinical trials.
  • Phase III trial testing the benefit of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy over treatment with surgery alone have revealed little impact on survival, with the exception of some small trials in Western nations.
  • Results from Japanese trials suggest that moderate chemotherapy with oral fluoropyrimidines may be effective against less-advanced (T2-stage) cancer, although another confirmative trial is needed to prove this point.
  • Investigators have recently turned to neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and some promising results have been reported from phase II trials using active drug combinations.
  • In 2005, a large phase III trial testing pre- and postoperative chemotherapy has proven its survival benefit for resectable gastric cancer.
  • Since the rate of pathologic complete response is considered to affect treatment results of this strategy, neoadjuvant chemoradiation that further increases the incidence of pathologic complete response could be a breakthrough, and phase III studies testing this strategy may be warranted in the near future.

  • [Title] A phase II trial of preoperative chemotherapy with epirubicin, cisplatin and capecitabine for patients with localised gastro-oesophageal junctional adenocarcinoma.
  • Preoperative cisplatin/fluorouracil is used for the treatment of localised oesophageal carcinoma.
  • This phase II study aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of administering preoperative epirubicin/cisplatin/capecitabine (ECX).
  • Patients with stage II or III oesophageal/gastro-oesophageal junctional adenocarcinoma from one institution received 4 cycles of ECX (epirubicin 50 mg m(-2) day 1, cisplatin 60 mg m(-2) day 1, capecitabine 625 mg m(-2) b.i.d. daily) followed by surgery.
  • The primary end point was the pathological complete response (pCR) rate based on a Simon two-stage design.
  • Thirteen out of 28 (46%) evaluable patients responded to chemotherapy by EUS (>or=30% reduction in maximal tumour thickness).
  • Although associated with a low pCR rate, survival with ECX was comparable with published studies suggesting that pCR may not correlate with satisfactory outcome from preoperative chemotherapy for localised oesophageal adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Adjuvant chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil, doxorubicin and mitomycin-C (FAM) for 6 months after curative resection of gastric carcinoma.
  • AIM: This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), doxorubicin and mitomycin-C (FAM) adjuvant chemotherapy in patients who had undergone curative resection of gastric carcinoma.
  • METHODS: From Nov 1999 to Jan 2002, 291 consecutive patients with stage IB-IIIB gastric adenocarcinoma were given FAM adjuvant chemotherapy.
  • Chemotherapy comprised intravenous 5-FU 600 mg/m(2) (days 1, 8, 29 and 36), doxorubicin 30 mg/m(2) (days 1 and 29) and mitomycin-C 10 mg/m(2) (day 1), every 8 weeks for 6 months.
  • RESULTS: The median follow-up time was 60.6 months, 92 patients died, and 93 patients had recurrent disease.
  • The 5-year overall survival (OS) rates were 85.9% for stage IB, 72.1% for stage II, 58.0% for stage IIIA, and 48.2% for stage IIIB (p=0.002).
  • The 5-year relapse-free survival (RFS) rates were 85.2% for stage IB, 71.2% for stage II, 53.3% for stage IIIA, and 39.2% for stage IIIB (p<0.001).
  • A total of 769 cycles of chemotherapy were delivered, and 15 patients experienced grade 3 or higher leukopenia.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Adjuvant chemotherapy with FAM for 6 months for gastric carcinoma indicated comparable RFS and OS with an acceptable toxicity profile.

  • S-1, a most effective DPD-inhibitory fluoropyrimidine, used as neoadjuvant/adjuvant chemotherapy has recently been shown to improve clinical outcome in patients with stage II and III advanced stage gastric carcinoma.
  • Orotate phosphoribosyltransferase(OPRTEC 2.4.2.10)is a primary enzyme involved in the first-step phosphorylation process of 5-fluorouracil and is an important enzyme that possibly enables to predict sensitivity to S-1 irrespective of tissue DPD levels.
  • To test the hypothesis that a low OPRT level in gastric carcinoma tissue is an indicator of chemoresistance to S-1-based chemotherapy, the predictive value of OPRT levels in chemoresistance was evaluated in patients with gastric carcinoma undergoing S-1-based-neoadjuvant/adjuvant chemotherapy using survival analyses.
  • A total of 67 patients with advanced-stage gastric carcinoma who underwent S-1-based neoadjuvant/adjuvant chemotherapy were subjected to the study.
  • The OPRT level was determined by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay(ELISA)that has recently been developed.
  • The patients who underwent S-1-based adjuvant/neoadjuvant chemotherapy(n=67)were divided into 2 groups using various cut-off values to determine the prognostic significance of the OPRT level.
  • In particular, there was a significant difference in the survival rates between Group L and Group H in stage III patients(p<0.05 by logrank test).
  • The multivariate analysis using Cox' proportional hazard model indicated that venous invasion of carcinoma(>v2), lymph node metastasis(>5), and low OPRT level (OPRT<2.0 ng/mg protein) were significant prognostic factors in patients who were underwent S-1-based neoadjuvant/adjuvant chemotherapy.
  • These results suggest that patients with a low OPRT level(OPRT<2.0 ng/mg protein)are non-responders to S-1- based adjuvant/neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
  • The determination of OPRT levels in gastric carcinoma tissue enables to predict the response to S-1-based neoadjuvant/adjuvant chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Mature results from a phase II trial of postoperative concurrent chemoradiotherapy for poor prognosis cancer of the esophagus and gastroesophageal junction.
  • INTRODUCTION: Mature results are presented from a phase II trial of postoperative concurrent chemoradiotherapy in patients with poor-prognosis cancer of the esophagus and gastroesophageal junction after primary surgical resection.
  • METHODS: Resected patients with a pathologic stage of T3, N1, or M1a were eligible for this trial.
  • Concurrent chemoradiotherapy was begun between 6 and 10 weeks after surgery and consisted of radiotherapy (1.8 Gy/d to a planned dose of 50.4-59.4 Gy), concurrent with two cycles of 5-fluorouracil (1000 mg/m/d) and cisplatin (20 mg/m/d), both given as 4-day continuous intravenous infusions during the first and fourth weeks of the radiation.
  • An earlier pathologic stage was the only predictor for a better outcome.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This schedule of postoperative concurrent chemoradiotherapy has acceptable toxicity for patients with poor-prognosis esophageal and gastroesophageal junction cancer after surgery.

  • [Title] Clinical and experimental study of oxaliplatin in treating human gastric carcinoma.
  • AIM: To evaluate the therapeutic effectiveness of oxaliplatin on human gastric carcinoma and to explore its mechanisms.
  • METHODS: Twenty-two cases of stage IV gastric carcinoma received 4-6 (mean 4.6) cycles of first line combined chemotherapy with oxaliplatin (oxaliplatin 85 mg/m(2), iv, gtt, 1 h, d 1; leukovorin 200 mg/m(2), iv, gtt, 1 h, d 1 and d 2; 5-FU 300 mg/m(2),iv, d 1 and d 2, 5-FU, continuous iv, gtt, 48 h; 1 cycle/2 wk).
  • Response rate, progression-free survival (PFS), total survival time, toxic side effects were evaluated.
  • The inhibitory effect of oxaliplatin on human gastric cell line SGC-7901 was detected and IC(50) was calculated by MTT.
  • Transmission electron microscopy, flow cytometry and TUNEL were performed to evaluate the apoptosis of cell line induced by the drug.
  • Mean PFS was 4.2 mo and mean total survival time was 7.2 mo.
  • Cumulative neurotoxicity (all grade I-II), vomiting and diarrhea, myelosuppression appeared in 93.5%, 20%, 32.9% patients, respectively.
  • However it could be detected at a much higher degree both by flowcytometry and by TUNEL with a statistical significance (68.47+/-7.92% and 8.23+/-2.67%, respectively, P<0.05) after incubated with 1 mmol/L oxaliplatin for 2 d.
  • CONCLUSION: Oxaliplatin is effective and well-tolerated in patients with advanced gastric carcinoma.
  • Oxaliplatin could significantly inhibit the growth of human gastric cell line SGC-7901.
  • The induction of Caspase-3 m-RNA expression, activation of Caspase-3 and promotion of apoptosis may be some of the therapeutic mechanisms of oxaliplatin on gastric carcinoma.
  • Annexin-V-fluorescein labeling flow cytometry is much more sensitive than TUNEL in detecting early stage apoptosis.

  • [Title] Favorable prognostic value of tissue human kallikrein 11 (hK11) in patients with ovarian carcinoma.
  • Recently, we developed a highly sensitive and specific immunoassay for hK11 and found that this protease is expressed in the prostate, stomach and trachea as well as in amniotic fluid and milk of lactating women.
  • Elevated serum hK11 levels were found in 60% of men with prostate cancer and 70% of women with ovarian cancer.
  • We hypothesized that hK11 may be implicated in endocrine-related malignancies and serve as a novel prostate and ovarian cancer serological marker.
  • An optimal cutoff value of 0.54 ng/mg was selected to categorize tumors as hK11-positive or -negative. hK11-positive tumors were more frequently associated with early stage (Stage I/II) disease, pre-/peri-menopausal status and patients who exhibited complete or partial response to chemotherapy (p < 0.05).
  • These results indicate that hK11 is a novel, independent marker of favorable prognosis in patients with ovarian cancer.

  • The efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy using S-1 for one year after curative surgical treatment for patients with gastric cancer of stage II or III was reported as the result of randomized controlled trial named ACTS-GC in 2007.
  • Therefore the number of patients undergoing this adjuvant chemotherapy is predicted to be rapidly increasing in near future.
  • On the other hand, the government promotes to construct the liaison-clinical pathway for patients with major carcinoma as a policy in 2007.
  • According to these two backgrounds, liaison-clinical pathway for patients with gastric cancer undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy using S-1 after curative gastrectomy has been induced in our institute from November 2007.

  • [Title] A feasibility study of postoperative chemotherapy with S-1 and cisplatin (CDDP) for gastric carcinoma (CCOG0703).
  • BACKGROUND: The outcome of stage III gastric cancer patients treated by D2 dissection followed by adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 remains unsatisfactory.
  • Moreover, some patients with a preoperative diagnosis of stage II/III turn out to be stage IV after surgical exploration, and a standard postoperative treatment for this population has not been established.
  • METHODS: A feasibility study of postoperative S-1/cisplatin (CDDP) was performed with patients who underwent gastrectomy for what turned out to be a stage IV gastric cancer.
  • Causes of treatment failure were failure to fulfill criteria for starting a new course within 5 weeks of the last administration of S-1 in 7, patient refusal in 6, disease recurrence/progression in 4, need to reduce dose by two levels in 4, and two successive skips of CDDP in 3 patients.
  • The median progression-free survival time of all patients was 363 days.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although promising in the neoadjuvant and advanced/metastatic setting, S-1/CDDP is too toxic as a postgastrectomy treatment for Japanese patients.

  • Gastric carcinoma remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in the world.
  • Clinical studies have revealed that approximately two thirds of the patients seek treatment for early recurrence within the abdominal cavity.
  • The aim of this phase II study was to evaluate the toxicity, feasibility, and efficacy of adjuvant intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPCT) with cisplatin, mitoxantrone, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), and folinic acid in patients with stage II-III gastric cancer.
  • Patients with stage II and III gastric cancer aged between 15 and 70 years, after curative resection, with adequate liver, renal, and cardiac function were included in the study.
  • The chemotherapy regimen consisted of cisplatin 60 mg/m2, mitoxantrone 12 mg/m2, 5-FU 600 mg/m2, and folinic acid 60 mg/m2, delivered intraperitoneally, diluted in 2 l normal saline.
  • However, adjuvant IPCT has similar survival rates in comparison to no adjuvant treatment; thus, it cannot be currently recommended outside the context of a clinical trial.

  • [Title] The addition of pravastatin to chemotherapy in advanced gastric carcinoma: a randomised phase II trial.
  • PURPOSE: Statins have for long been considered to play a potential role in anticancer treatment based upon their ability to inhibit the mevalonate synthesis pathway.
  • This randomised phase II trial compared the efficacy and safety of pravastatin added to epirubicin, cisplatin and capecitabine (ECC versus ECC+P) in patients with advanced gastric carcinoma.
  • For early termination in case of futility, a two-stage design was applied (P(0) = 50%; P(1) = 70%; α = 0.05; β = 0.10).
  • PFR(6 months) was 6/14 patients (42.8%) in the ECC+P arm, and 7/15 patients (46.7%) in the control arm, and therefore the study was terminated after the first stage.
  • CONCLUSION: In this randomised phase II trial the addition of pravastatin to ECC did not improve outcome in patients with advanced gastric cancer.

  • [Title] In vitro chemosensitivity test to predict chemosensitivity for paclitaxel, using human gastric carcinoma tissues.
  • BACKGROUND: Therapy guided by chemotherapy sensitivity and resistance assays may lead to rational treatment decisions.
  • Paclitaxel, one of several new drugs for gastric carcinoma, has not been extensively evaluated by in vitro chemosensitivity tests.
  • METHODS: Chemosensitivity testing by histoculture drug response assay (HDRA) was performed with fresh specimens of primary tumor from 113 patients with gastric carcinoma.
  • HDRA was successfully performed for 100 of 113 samples and chemosensitivity, calculated as the percentage of optical density of a tumor treated with anticancer drugs in relation to the optical density of the tumor cultured in the medium only, was distributed widely at this concentration.
  • No significant correlation was observed between chemosensitivity and age, sex, clinical stage, histopathologic type, and outcome of patients with gastric carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: A histoculture drug response assay can now be performed to predict the chemosensitivity of paclitaxel at the concentration found in the current study.

  • [Title] 5-FU plus leucovorin (Mayo Regimen) for concurrent chemoradiotherapy after surgery in patients with resectable locally advanced gastric carcinoma: Preliminary results of a phase II study.
  • : 4196 Background: Patients with locoregionally advanced carcinoma of the stomach have a grim outcome due to frequent local and systemic recurrences after surgery.
  • To potentially increase the local control or survival rate and decrease relapses, we investigated a strategy of concurrent chemoradiotherapy and followed by consolidation chemotherapy after surgery.
  • METHODS: Operable 71 patients (Stage IB-IV, M0) underwent total or subtotal gastrectomy.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy (250 mg/m2 5-FU) was administered concurrently on the first day of every radiotherapy weeks [which was totally standart field radiotherapy (RT), or total abdominal field RT up to 20 Gy first, then returned to standart field RT], .
  • After chemoradiotherapy regimen, consolidation chemotherapy consisted of 450 mg/mg 5-FU plus 20 mg/m2 Leucovorin was applied up to four cycles, q28 d.
  • Six patients in both arms did not get consolidation chemotherapy.
  • There were no deaths related to chemotherapy, chemoradiotherapy, or surgery.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preliminary results suggest the feasibility of postoperative adjuvant chemoradiotherapy with 5-FU followed by consolidation chomotherapy with MAYO regimen in gastric cancer with acceptable toxicities.

  • [Title] Phase II clinical trial of postoperative S-1 monotherapy for gastric cancer patients with free intraperitoneal cancer cells detected by real-time RT-PCR.
  • BACKGROUND: We have previously reported the molecular detection of peritoneal micrometastases in patients with gastric cancer by quantifying carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) mRNA in the peritoneal washes.
  • Patients with CEA mRNA exceeding a cutoff value have a significant risk for developing peritoneal carcinomatosis, but optimal treatment for this population remains unknown.
  • METHODS: CEA mRNA (+) patients with gastric cancer were treated postoperatively with S-1 monotherapy.
  • Overall survival, the primary endpoint of this phase II trial, was compared with the historical control, which is comprised of CEA mRNA (+) patients who were not given postoperative chemotherapy.
  • RESULTS: A total of 32 patients with CEA mRNA (+) gastric cancer were enrolled.
  • CONCLUSIONS: S-1 monotherapy, which significantly reduced risk for recurrence in stage II/III gastric carcinoma in another phase III trial, seems not to be as effective in eradicating free cancer cells in the abdominal cavity.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Tumor microcirculation and selective enhancement of drug delivery--clinical applications based on pathophysiological experiments].
  • Tumor tissue is composed of cancer cells (parenchyma) and tumor vessels (interstitium).
  • This would be a certain cause of insufficient drug delivery to tumor tissues.
  • Among the experimental evidence using Yoshida Sarcoma and Ascites Hepatomas, functional differences in microcirculation between tumor and normal tissues were found by Suzuki et al. (1977).
  • Under hypertensive state induced by the continuous infusion of angiotensin II, tumor blood flow increased remarkably, while there was no change or decrease in blood flow in normal tissues such as the brain, bone marrow, liver and kidney.
  • Augmentation of the anti-tumor effects of angiotensin II-induced hypertension chemotherapy (IHC) for advanced gastric carcinoma was revealed in two randomized controlled trials (RCT-1 & 2) of collaborative study groups in Japan.
  • In the results of phase II studies from 1978 to 1994 (OPN-1) and 1995 to 1999 (OPN-2) for advanced gastric carcinoma (GC), the response rates were 37.9% and 35.7%.
  • Down staging in which the conclusive stage score was lower than the score of the clinical stage, was observed in 8 out of 94 cases (19%) with primary lesions in total and in 30 patients (63%) receiving reduction surgery after IHC, since 1978.
  • It is very important for exact evaluation after chemotherapy to understand or estimate the pathohistological changes in the tumor and its degenerated or repaired tissues, which present various clinical images.
  • IHC with smaller DI could lead to a reduction in the accumulation of toxicities of anti-cancer drugs in the host.
  • In conclusion, IHC might be applied to all kinds of tumors to enhance the chemotherapeutic effects through selective increase of drug delivery to tumors.

  • Despite surgical R0 resections, patients with gastric cancer stage UICC II-III have a high risk of recurrence and metachronic metastases.
  • Preliminary evidence exists that adjuvant chemotherapy or neoadjuvant chemo(radio)therapy protocols may improve the prognosis of these patients undergoing surgery of gastric cancer with curative intention.
  • Upcoming cytostatic agents, i.e. irinotecan, docetaxel, oxaliplatin, and oral fluoropyridines are currently under investigation in new multimodality treatment regimens and may further increase R0 resection rates and may prolong disease-free and overall survival in the treatment of advanced localized gastric cancer.

  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Whether received radical operation is an important prognostic factor of gastric carcinoma.
  • This study was to investigate prognostic factors of gastric carcinoma.
  • METHODS: Clinical data of 405 patients with gastric carcinoma, received radical operation from Jan.
  • 1985 to Dec. 1995 in Cancer Center of Sun Yat-sen University, were analyzed retrospectively.
  • The 5-year survival rates of patients in pathologic TNM (pTNM) stage I, II, III, and IV were 75.6%, 58.7%, 28.0%, and 18.4%, respectively (P < 0.01).
  • In addition, the 5-year survival rate was higher in patients with perioperative chemotherapy than in patients without perioperative chemotherapy (47.2% vs. 37.8%, P < 0.05).
  • Univariate analysis showed that perioperative chemotherapy, Borrmann type, tumor size, pathologic type, and pTNM stage were prognostic factors of gastric carcinoma.
  • Multivariate analysis showed that pTNM stage, tumor size, and perioperative chemotherapy were independent prognostic factors of gastric carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: pTNM stage, tumor size, and perioperative chemotherapy are the most significant factors influencing prognosis of gastric carcinoma patients after radical operation.
  • Perioperative chemotherapy contributes to enhance survival rate of gastric carcinoma patients.

  • BACKGROUND: The authors evaluated the efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) plus doxorubicin in gastric carcinoma after D2-3 curative resection.
  • METHODS: A total of 301 patients with Stage II to IV (en bloc resected T4b; 1984 American Joint Committee on Cancer staging) were accrued between 1984 and 1996.
  • Chemotherapy was started within 4 weeks of surgery according to the following schedule: intravenous bolus injection of doxorubicin 40 mg/m2 every 3 weeks for 12 cycles and 5-FU 400 mg/m2 weekly for 60 weeks.
  • Sixty-four percent of the total patients and 71.7% of the patients who did not experience recurrence during the chemotherapy finished the protocol completely with acceptable toxicities.
  • Treatment completion group showed survival benefit over the early termination group in 5-year survival (75.2% vs. 52.9%; P = 0.0005).
  • Multivariate analysis demonstrated that completion of chemotherapy is an independent prognostic factor of both disease free and overall survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Adjuvant chemotherapy with 5-FU plus doxorubicin for 60 weeks after D2-3 dissection induced promising survival duration with acceptable toxicities.
  • Full administration of the planned dosage of the combined drugs is recommendable as opposed to early termination of the chemotherapy in gastric carcinoma.

  • [Title] Current status and future perspectives of post-operative adjuvant therapy for gastric carcinoma.
  • The clinical benefit of post-operative adjuvant immunochemotherapy for survival of patients with gastric carcinoma is unclear, although a number of prospective randomized controlled studies have been conducted.
  • The current status and future perspectives of post-operative adjuvant chemotherapy in gastric carcinoma have been evaluated in terms of survival benefit.
  • A meta-analysis, however, indicated a survival benefit in patients treated with post-operative adjuvant chemotherapy including mitomycin, anthracyclines, cyclophosphamide, alkylating agents and 5-fluorouracil (odds ratio: 0.8 to approximately 0.82, 95% CI<1.0).
  • The survival benefit was observed in patients with stage II and stage III gastric carcinoma, but not those with stage I.
  • Although combination therapy with mitomycin, 5-fluorouracil and non-specific immunomodulators, such as PSK and OK-432, appeared to improve overall survival without immunomodulators, the survival effect of immunomodulators is still not clear.
  • There are several possible reasons why the survival benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy or immunochemotherapy is small and marginal compared to surgery alone: (i) low efficacy of the chemotherapy regimen;.
  • (ii) small sample size; and (iii) differences in chemosensitivity of treated patients based on genetic background.
  • The determination of subgroups responsive to chemotherapy and the development of a rationale-based and molecular-targeted chemotherapy are required to clearly demonstrate whether there is a survival benefit of post-operative adjuvant chemotherapy in gastric carcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Detection of free cancer cells in peritoneal cavity in patients surgically treated for gastric adenocarcinoma].
  • BACKGROUND/AIM: Peritoneal metastasis is a leading cause of therapeutic failure after an operative treatment of patients with gastric adenocarcinoma.
  • Free cancer cells might induce or indicate an early peritoneal seeding with a subsequent peritoneal metastasis.
  • The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of the presence of free cancer cells in the peritoneal cavity in the patients surgically treated for gastric adenocarcinoma, and its relation to certain clinical, operative and pathohistological paramethers.
  • Immediately after the laparotomy, 200 ml physiologic saline, heated to 37 degrees C, was introduced into the abdominal cavity, mannualy dispersed and collected from the region around the gastric tumor and the pouch of Douglas.
  • The cytological findings were defined as positive or negative according to the presence of cancer cells.
  • The frequency of positive cytological findings was compared to the location and the diameter of the cancer, pathohistological type of carcinoma, pathohistological stage of the disease, lymph node and the liver and/or peritoneal metastases and the type of surgical procedure.
  • RESULTS: Free cancer cells were found in 24 (24%) of the patients, while in 76 (76%) of them cytological findings were negative.
  • A statistically highly significant difference (p < or = 0.001) in the frequency of positive cytological finding was found between the groups of patients with and without cancer invasion of serosa, with cancer diameters > 5 cm and < or = 5 cm, in the stage of disease I, II and III, IV, with macroscopically present and without metastases, with re section and D2 lymphadenectomy and palliative procedure.
  • Free cancer cells were statistically more frequently (p < or = 0.05) detected in the patients with lymph nodes metastases comparing to the patients with out lymph nodes involvement.
  • The results of the univariate analysis showed that the cancer diameter > 5 cm, tumor invasion of serosa, pathohistological stage of the disease III and IV and macroscopically visible metastases were the most important risk factors for the free cancer cells detection.
  • CONCLUSION: Peritoneal lavage cytology was shown to be a useful tool for the detection of the group of patients with greatest risk of peritoneal dissemination.
  • The frequency of positive cytological findings was highly associated with the diameter of the tumor and the cancer invasion of serosa.
  • Cytological examination of peritoneal lavage fluid improved the accuracy of staging and selection of patients who might have benefit from neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Correlation between expression of leptin and clinicopathological features and prognosis in patients with gastric cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: The relationship between the expression of leptin in the tissue of gastric cancer and the clinicopathological features as well as patients' outcome were investigated.
  • METHODS: Sixty-one gastric cancer specimens were investigated by immunohistochemical studies with anti-leptin and anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) antibodies and by monitoring patients for at least 3 years after surgery.
  • RESULTS: A positive rate of leptin expression was significantly associated with Borrmann classification (Borrmann type 1 and type 2 68.2% vs Borrmann type 3 and type 4 or unclassified 35.3%), tumor histology (well differentiated tumors 87.5% vs poorly differentiated tumors 48.9%), lymph node metastasis (with 69.0% vs without 36.8%) and stage (stage III + IV 69.0% vs stage I + II 36.8%).
  • The Cox proportional hazards model identified serosal involvement, tumor size, metastasis, tumor histology, leptin expression, lymph node metastasis, age and postoperative chemotherapy as significant prognostic factors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The expression of leptin in the tissue of gastric cancer was significantly associated with tumor histology, Borrmann classification, lymph node metastasis and stage of gastric cancer.
  • In patients with poorly differentiated gastric cancer, a poor prognosis was found in those with a strong expression of leptin.

  • [Title] Cancer of the esophagogastric junction.
  • Epidemiological, clinical and pathological data support a sub-classification of adenocarcinomas arising in the vicinity of the esophagogastric junction (AEG) into adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus (Type I), true carcinoma of the cardia (Type II) and subcardial carcinoma (Type III).
  • While most, if not all, adenocarcinomas of the distal esophagus arise from areas with specialized intestinal metaplasia, which develop as a consequence of chronic gastroesophageal reflux, the etiology and pathogenesis of true carcinoma of the gastric cardia and subcardial gastric cancer is not clear at present.
  • Although a subgroup of true carcinomas of the gastric cardia may also develop within short segments of intestinal metaplasia at the esophagogastric junction, a causal relation between these tumors and gastroesophageal reflux has been difficult to establish.
  • Our experience in the management of more than 1000 such patients during the past 18 years suggests that an individualized therapeutic strategy oriented by tumor type and stage results in survival rates superior to those reported with a more indiscriminate approach.
  • This individualized strategy prescribes a transmediastinal esophagectomy with lymphadenectomy in the lower posterior mediastinum and along the celiac axis for Type I tumors, extended total gastrectomy with transhiatal resection of the distal esophagus and D2 lymphadenectomy for Type II and Type III tumors, a limited resection of the esophagogastric junction and distal esophagus with interposition of a pedicled jejunal segment for uT1N0 tumors, and neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by resection for uT3/T4 tumors.
  • Extensive preoperative staging is essential to allow correct selection of the appropriate therapeutic strategy using this tailored approach.

  • [Title] Results of immunochemo-surgery for gastric carcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Although the therapeutic results of gastric cancer have markedly improved, it still remains the most common cancer death in Korea.
  • METHODOLOGY: The clinicopathologic characteristics were analyzed for 11,491 consecutive patients who underwent operation for gastric cancer at the Department of Surgery, Seoul National University Hospital from 1971 to 1997.
  • The prognostic significance of treatment modality [surgery alone, surgery + chemotherapy, surgery + immunotherapy + chemotherapy (immunochemo-surgery)] were evaluated in stage III gastric cancer.
  • The 5-year survival rates according to TNM stage were 92.9% for Ia, 84.2% for Ib, 69.3% for II, 45.8% for IIIa, 29.6% for IIIb and 9.2% for IV.
  • Regarding adjuvant treatment modality, significant survival difference was observed in stage III patients.
  • The 5-year survival rates were 44.8% for the immunochemo-surgery group, 36.8% for the surgery + chemotherapy group and 27.2% for the surgery alone group.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Curative resection, depth of invasion and lymph node metastasis were the most significant prognostic factors in gastric cancer.
  • Consequently, early detection and curative resection with radical lymph node dissection, followed by immunochemotherapy especially in patients with stage III gastric cancer should be recommended as a standard treatment principle for patients with gastric cancer.

  • [Title] Surgical pathology stage by American Joint Commission on Cancer criteria predicts patient survival after preoperative chemoradiation for localized gastric carcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Preoperative chemoradiation for localized gastric cancer can modify baseline stage, as determined by surgical pathology stage.
  • Therefore, the authors hypothesized that surgical pathology stage would be a better prognosticator of overall survival (OS) than baseline stage.
  • METHODS: Patient populations were combined from 2 prospectively conducted, preoperative chemoradiation trials that used the same therapeutic strategy.
  • Patients must have had localized gastric adenocarcinoma and were staged extensively, including endoscopic ultrasonography and laparoscopy.
  • Patients had to be fit for surgery medically with a technically resectable cancer.
  • Patients first received induction chemotherapy for up to 2 months followed by chemoradiation (45 grays) and an attempted surgery.
  • OS was correlated with pretreatment and posttreatment parameters, including surgical pathology stage according to American Joint Commission on Cancer criteria.
  • None of the pretreatment parameters correlated with OS; however, longer OS correlated with lower pathologic stage (P < .0001), R0 resection (P < .001), clinical response noted prior to surgery (P = .002), pathCR (P = .004), lower pathologic lymph node classification (P = .006), and lower pathologic tumor classification (P = .03).
  • Pathologic stage and R0 resection were independent prognostic factors for OS (multivariate Cox model; both P = .05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: When preoperative chemoradiation strategy was employed for gastric cancer, the surgical pathology stage, a reflection of cancer's biologic heterogeneity, was a better prognosticator of OS than the baseline clinical stage.
  • Surgical pathology stage, in this setting, may serve as an intermediate endpoint for Phase II/III trials.

  • [Title] [A case of synchronous esophageal and gastric cancer successfully treated by combination TS-1/CDDP therapy with irradiation].
  • We report a case of synchronous esophageal and gastric cancer in a patient with severe liver dysfunction who was treated successfully using TS-1/CDDP therapy combined with irradiation therapy.
  • A 56-year-old man with a chief complaint of dysphagia was diagnosed with thoracic esophageal cancer by endoscopy, and was referred to our hospital.
  • Synchronous esophageal and gastric cancer were diagnosed by endoscopy and barium swallow.
  • The preoperative diagnosis was T3N0M0, Stage II esophageal cancer and T1N0M0, Stage I A gastric cancer, both of which were diagnosed to be resectable.
  • TS-1 (80 mg/day) and CDDP (3 mg/day) therapy was combined with irradiation, 60 Gy given in a T-pattern to the mediastinum.
  • The patient did not suffer any side-effects, and endoscopy performed 44 days after the start of treatment showed that the esophageal lesion was now only a scar.
  • Only a slight elevation of the esophagus was seen by endoscopy 219 days after the start of the therapy.
  • The patient is currently undergoing only TS-1 treatment as an outpatient and is under observation.
  • TS-1 and CDDP therapy combined with radiotherapy appears to be effective in treating thoracic esophageal cancer.

  • [Title] Prognosis of 980 patients with gastric cancer after surgical resection.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Although surgery is the only possible means to cure gastric cancer, the prognosis is often discrepant.
  • The American Joint Committee on Cancer / International Union against Cancer (AJCC/UICC) published the TNM classification of Malignant Tumors (seventh edition) for gastric cancer recently.
  • This study aimed to use this new edition staging system to investigate the prognostic factors for gastric cancer.
  • METHODS: The clinicopathologic data of 980 patients with gastric cancer treated by surgical resection in our hospital between January 2000 and December 2006 were analyzed retrospectively.
  • The 6th and 7th edition AJCC/UICC TNM staging systems were used to compare the survival outcomes for the cohort of patients.
  • The 5-year survival rates for patients with pTNM stage I, II, III, and IV disease classified by the 7th edition staging system were 93.2%, 72.4%, 39.1%, and 5.2%, respectively.
  • In both univariate analysis and Cox multivariate analysis, age, tumor site, tumor size, histological type, resection type, radical resection, lymphatic/venous invasion, depth of invasion, nodal status, metastasis, retrieved lymph nodes, metastatic lymph node ratio, and adjuvant chemotherapy were prognostic factors with these patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Compared with the 6th edition system, the new edition of TNM staging system for gastric cancer can accurately predict the survival after operation.

  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the transhiatus esophagectomy for patients with esophageal cancer.
  • METHODS: Clinicopathological data of 46 patients with esophageal cancer undergone transhiatus esophagectomy by single surgeon team from May 2000 to July 2007 were analyzed retrospectively.
  • All the patients were classified according to UICC TNM stage classification: 3 cases as stage 0, 6 cases as stage I, 17 cases as stage II a, 2 cases as stage II b, 16 cases as stage III.
  • Six patients received preoperative chemotherapy and pathological complete response was seen in 2 cases.
  • Reconstruction with stomach was performed in 42 cases and with colon interposition in 4 cases.All the tumors were resected, and there was no perioperative death.
  • CONCLUSION: Transhiatus esophagectomy is an ideal choice in surgical treatment for patients with esophageal cancer, especially for the ones of aged, poor cardiac or pulmonary function, who can not afford the thoracotomy.

  • [Title] The national practice for patients receiving radiation therapy for carcinoma of the esophagus: results of the 1996-1999 Patterns of Care Study.
  • PURPOSE: A Patterns of Care Study (PCS) was conducted to evaluate the standards of practice for patients receiving radiation therapy for esophageal cancer from 1996 to 1999.
  • This study examined the evaluation and treatment schemes used during this time and compared these results to the PCS data obtained between 1992 and 1994 to identify any fundamental changes in national practice.
  • METHODS: A national survey was conducted using a two-stage cluster sampling technique.
  • Specific information was collected on 414 patients with esophageal cancer who received radiotherapy (RT) as part of definitive or adjuvant management at 59 institutions.
  • Patients were staged according to the 1983 AJCC.
  • Eligibility criteria for case review included RT between 1996 and 1999, no evidence of distant metastasis (including CT evidence of either supraclavicular or celiac nodes >1 cm), squamous cell or adenocarcinoma histology, Karnofsky performance status >60, tumors in the thoracic esophagus with <2 cm extension into the stomach, and no prior malignancies within the last 5 years.
  • Statistical analysis was performed on the database using SUDAAN software to accurately reflect the type of sampling technique used by PCS.
  • Sixteen percent were clinical Stage I, 39% clinical Stage II, and 33% clinical Stage III according to the 1983 AJCC system.
  • Fifty-six percent of patients received concurrent chemoradiation as definitive treatment.
  • Forty-six percent of patients with adenocarcinoma underwent trimodality therapy as compared to 19% with squamous cell carcinomas (p = 0.0002).
  • The median total dose of external RT was 50.4 Gy, and the median dose per fraction was 1.8 Gy.
  • The chemotherapy agents most commonly used included 5-fluorouracil (82%), cisplatin (67%), and paclitaxel (22%).
  • Paclitaxel was more commonly employed as part of a preoperative chemoradiation regimen than in the setting of definitive chemoradiation (46% vs. 12%, p = 0.03).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The Patterns of Care Survey confirms the use of concurrent chemoradiation as part of the national standards of practice for the management of esophageal cancer patients.

  • Due to their borderline location between the stomach and esophagus the optimal surgical strategy for patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction is controversial.
  • Irrespective of the surgical approach a complete removal of the primary tumor and its lymphatic drainage has to be the primary goal of surgical treatment of such tumors.
  • Based on the experience with surgical resection of more than 1000 patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction we recommend an individualized surgical strategy guided by tumor stage and topographic location of the tumor center or tumor mass.
  • This requires detailed preoperative staging and classification of tumors arising in the vicinity of the esophagogastric junction into adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus (AEG Type I Tumors), true carcinoma of the gastric cardia (AEG Type II Tumors) and subcardial gastric carcinoma infiltrating the esophagogastric junction (AEG Type III Tumors).
  • In patients with Type I Tumors transthoracic esophagectomy offers no survival benefit over radical transmediastinal esophagectomy, but is associated with higher morbidity.
  • In patients with Type II or Type III tumors an extended total gastrectomy results in equal or superior survival and less postoperative mortality than a more extended esophagogastrectomy.
  • In patients with early tumors, staged as uT1 on preoperative endosonography, a limited resection of the proximal stomach, cardia and distal esophagus with interposition of a pedicled isoperistaltic jejunal segment allows a complete tumor removal with adequate lymphadenectomy and offers excellent functional results.
  • Multimodal treatment protocols with neoadjuvant chemotherapy or combined radiochemotherapy followed by surgical resection appear to markedly improve the prognosis in patients with locally advanced tumors who respond to preoperative treatment.
  • With this tailored approach extensive preoperative staging becomes mandatory for an adequate selection of the appropriate therapeutic concept.

  • [Title] Pharmacodynamic studies of gefitinib in tumor biopsy specimens from patients with advanced gastric carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is highly expressed in some gastric cancers and is implicated in cancer cell growth and proliferation.
  • The objective of this study was to assess the in situ biologic activity of the EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor gefitinib in gastric tumor samples in a phase II study.
  • METHODS: Patients with previously treated stage IV adenocarcinoma of the stomach or gastroesophageal junction were randomly assigned to receive gefitinib (250 or 500 mg/d).
  • Tumor biopsies, obtained at screening and on day 28 of treatment, were assessed for biomarker expression using immunohistochemistry and analysis of apoptosis.
  • RESULTS: One hundred sixteen tumor samples from 70 patients were available, 70 were baseline and 46 were on-therapy biopsies.
  • After gefitinib treatment, levels of pEGFR in tumor cells were significantly reduced (P = .001); this was not the case for pMAPK and phosphorylated Akt (pAkt).
  • CONCLUSION: Gefitinib reached the tumors at concentrations sufficient to inhibit EGFR activation in advanced gastric carcinoma patients, although this did not translate into clinical benefit.
