BACKGROUND AND AIM: Endoscopic biliary drainage (EBD) is the mainstay treatment for inoperable malignant distal biliary obstruction (MDBO). Some authorities suggest that metallic stents are more cost-effective than plastic stents in patients with expected survival of at least 6 months. However, studies attempting to define the predictive factors for such survival times are limited. This study aims to develop a scoring system for predicting a survival time of <24 weeks in these patients...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) of oxaliplatin combined with intravenous 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and l-leucovorin (l-LV) in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with systemic chemotherapy failure in a phase I/II trial. METHODS: CRC patients with unresectable liver metastases following standard systemic chemotherapy failure were eligible. A catheter-port system for HAI was placed using interventional radiology. In phase I, escalating doses of oxaliplatin for levels 1 and 2 were set at 50 and 100 mg/m(2), respectively, and were combined with fixed doses of intravenous 5-FU (200 mg/m(2) bolus and 2400 mg/m(2)/46-h continuous infusion) and l-LV (200 mg/m(2))...

BACKGROUND: K-RAS and recently N-RAS gene mutation testing are mandatory requirements prior to anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) monoclonal antibody treatment of metastatic CRC. Mutation prevalence and distribution in Indonesian colorectal cancer (CRC) are not known. METHODS: Combined methods of PCR high-resolution melt (HRM), restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), and direct DNA sequencing were used to genotype exons 2, 3, and 4 of both K-RAS and N-RAS genes for routine clinical testing of CRC patients...

BACKGROUND: The majority of patients with pancreatic cancer are diagnosed with metastatic disease at presentation. Nevertheless, local progression is responsible for up to 30% of deaths and can lead to significant morbidity. As a consequence, further exploration of effective methods of local control and palliation is essential. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a widely utilized technique for the treatment of localized pancreatic cancer. Here, we report our experience with SBRT and chemotherapy for the local treatment of the metastatic patient population...

PURPOSE: Due to its clinical course and often-late detection, many patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer (mPC) experience poor quality of life (QoL). This pilot project assessed real-world QoL in patients with mPC at different stages of treatment. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was conducted in the following groups of patients with mPC: before initiation of first-line (1L) chemotherapy (no treatment); with partial response (PR) or stable disease (SD) upon receipt of ≥3 cycles of 1L nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine (nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine PR or SD); and with disease progression during ≥1L chemotherapy and not currently receiving nab-paclitaxel (≥1L PD)...

PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to create a novel method for screening gastric cancer (GC) based on serum levels of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), cancer antigen 19-9 (CA19-9), and cancer antigen 72-4 (CA72-4) tumor markers. METHODS: Retrospectively, the predictive value for GC was calculated using a logistic analysis on serum levels of CEA, CA19-9, and CA72-4 from 216 GC and 49 benign patients. The predictive value was used to make a recommendation system on whether further GC screening was necessary...

BACKGROUND: ASGE and ESGE guidelines recommend endoscopic metal stent placement for pancreatic carcinoma patients with biliary obstruction, and whose estimated life expectancy is greater than 6 months. Because median overall survival (OS) of metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma until recently has been less than 6 months, plastic biliary stents were preferentially placed rather than metal due to the greater upfront cost of the latter. Recent advances in the treatment of metastatic pancreatic cancer have extended median OS beyond the 6-month range...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Esophageal cancer is the eighth most common type of cancer worldwide. For the treatment of which, surgical intervention alone or with neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy or chemotherapy is recommended. In this study, we aimed to compare the benefits of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy versus postoperative chemoradiotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We collected data regarding 325 patients admitted for esophageal cancer to Qaem Hospital, Mashhad, Iran, during 2006-2016...

INTRODUCTION: In the US, gastroenterologists (GIs) often inform patients of the initial diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Thus, GIs are frequently the first physicians to provide vital information regarding treatment strategies and options to patients which can have significant impact on subsequent clinical decision-making. Since treatments for pancreatic cancer are rapidly evolving, it may be challenging for GIs to maintain an adequate knowledge base required to provide accurate cursory information or avoid providing inaccurate data to patients at a very sensitive point in time in their care...

OBJECTIVE: In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between the survival rate of patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and expression of two biomarkers along with age, gender, tumor margin, depth of invasion, site of tumor, tumor diameter, tumor grade, number of involved nodes, and vascular invasion. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective survey, medical records of patients referred to the Shohada-e Tajrish hospital during 2001 to 2005 were reviewed and subjects with definite diagnosis of SCC were included...

PURPOSE: This study investigated the patient perspective during cancer treatment and throughout the survivorship period and to understand how the patient experience may be related to choices for the treatment of gastric cancer. METHODS: Eligible patients in the Vector Oncology electronic medical records database were ≥18 years of age, diagnosed with gastric cancer, and received active treatment. Quality of life (QOL) was collected using the Patient Care Monitor (PCM)...

BACKGROUND: The epidemiology of gastric cancer in the Middle East has never been described. Therefore, the characteristics of gastric cancer in the Lebanese population will be reported in this study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study that included all patients diagnosed with gastric cancer at Hotel Dieu de France University Hospital in Beirut, Lebanon between 2010 and 2016 was conducted. All eligible patients were reviewed for demographic and epidemiologic analysis...
