BACKGROUND: The 'SMA-first' (P-SMA) pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) allows dissection directly on the right lateral aspect of superior mesenteric artery (SMA) which may decrease circumferential resection margin (CRM) positivity. This comparative study between standard PD (sPD) and P-SMA approach was planned focusing on CRM involvement. METHODS: This was a prospective study comparing consecutive patients with resectable periampullary cancers (PACA) undergoing PD using the standard or P-SMA approach...

REVIEW
Gwenalyn Garcia, Marcel Odaimi
PURPOSE: In recent years, significant progress in survival has been achieved using systemic combination chemotherapy in patients with pancreatic cancer. However, the elderly are largely underrepresented in clinical trials, and gains made from these may not necessarily apply to this important subgroup of patients. We review the currently available data regarding contemporary combination chemotherapy regimens, including FOLFIRINOX, gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel, nanoliposomal irinotecan plus 5-fluorouracil and leucovorin, and gemcitabine plus capecitabine, in elderly pancreatic cancer patients...

PURPOSE: Treatment for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer is chemotherapy commonly combined with monoclonal antibodies against vascular endothelial growth factor (bevacizumab) or epidermal growth factor receptor (cetuximab or panitumumab), the efficacy of which has been proven in randomized controlled trials. The objective of the current retrospective study was to analyze the impact of targeted therapy, adverse events, and dose reduction on overall survival (OS) and metastasis resection rates...

BACKGROUND: Many studies have suggested that modulation of DNMT3B function caused by single nucleotide polymorphisms of the DNMT3B promoter region may underlie the susceptibility to various cancers such as tumors of the digestive system. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of -579 G>T polymorphism in the promoter of the DNMT3B gene on risk of gastric cancer in a population from West Iran. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a case-control study in 100 gastric cancer patients and 112 cancer-free controls to assess the correlation between DNMT3B -579 G>T (rs1569686) polymorphism and the risk of gastric cancer...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The minilaparotomy approach is feasible for the resection of colon cancer. This study aimed to compare the clinical and oncological outcomes of minilaparotomy and laparoscopic approaches in patients with colon cancer. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of consecutive patients undergoing minilaparotomy or laparoscopic resection for colon cancer from January 2009 to December 2014. RESULTS: There were 376 patients with colon cancer...

PURPOSE: Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (Erbb2/HER2) overexpression, which was previously detected in invasive breast cancer, has now been implicated in advanced gastric cancer (GC) and gastroesophageal junction cancer (GEC). A study was conducted to determine the rate of HER2 positivity in patients with locally advanced or metastatic GC and GEC in Malaysia and to assess the impact of various demographic and clinical parameters on HER2 positivity. METHODS: A total of 228 adult patients with GC or GEC were enrolled from Subang Jaya Medical Centre, Malaysia, for retrospective (210) and prospective study...

PURPOSE: Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is becoming a global health problem. Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN), also known as guardian gene of cancer, encodes a protein, which dephosphorylates phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5) triphosphate {PtdIns (3,4,5) P3 } into phosphatidylinositol (4,5) diphosphate {PtdIns (4,5) P2} that results in the inhibition of AKT/PKB signaling pathway. PTEN plays a key role in the pathogenesis of various cancers. However, its role in GBC is still obscure. The present study was aimed to identify the epigenetic role of PTEN in GBC and GSD...

BACKGROUND: There is a scarce data on prognostic relevance of carbohydrate antigen (CA 19-9). This retrospective study was undertaken to evaluate its prognostic relevance in different prognostic subsets of gallbladder carcinoma (GBC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred forty-one patients of GBC treated between January 2012 and December 2014 were the subjects of this retrospective analysis. Baseline CA 19-9 levels of four cohorts of patients: extended cholecystectomy (EC), simple cholecystectomy (SC) with residual or recurrent disease, locally advanced disease (LAGBC) and metastatic disease were ascertained...

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...
