Chemotherapy prolongs overall survival (OS) in esophageal (EC) and gastric cancer (GC). Unsatisfactory results of systemic therapy initiated a search for new treatment options. In metastatic disease, a number of targeted drugs were tested; however, several phase III studies assessing receptor tyrosin kinase-related signaling pathways, such as EGFR, MET/HGF or mTOR, failed. Trastuzumab remains the only targeted drug with a known molecular predictor, which extended the OS in metastatic gastric adenocarcinoma and adenocarcinoma of esophago-gastric junction...

Dietary fat intake is potentially associated with the onset of esophageal carcinoma (EC), but evidence from observational studies has remained unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the role of fat intake in the development of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). A systematic search was conducted in PubMed and Web of Science to identify all relevant studies. Study-specific relative risks (RR) for the highest versus the lowest intake categories and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were pooled using a random-effects model...

The role of anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) therapy is controversial in patients with esophago-gastric adenocarcinoma. We performed this meta-analysis to evaluate whether the addition of an anti-EGFR agent to chemotherapy can produce survival benefits in patients with advanced esophageal adenocarcinoma, gastric adenocarcinoma, or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma. Electronic databases were searched for eligible randomized studies. From six studies, 1,817 patients were included in the meta-analysis of hazard ratios (HRs) for progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS)...

BACKGROUND: Recent genomic studies indicated that esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is driven by amplification of c-MET or HER2 or both in a subset of patients. We studied the effect of MET targeting by the small molecule inhibitor foretinib in EAC cells and the interplay between MET and HER2 signaling. METHODS: We measured the expression levels and phosphorylation status of MET and HER2 proteins in EAC cell lines using Western blot analysis. The expression levels of MET and HER2 were manipulated by transfecting cells with specific siRNA or a plasmid expressing HER2...

BACKGROUND: Barrett's esophagus metaplasia is the key precursor lesion of esophageal adenocarcinoma. The aim of this study was to find a subset of markers that may allow the identification of patients at risk for esophageal adenocarcinoma, and to determine genes differentially expressed in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. METHODS: Laser capture microdissection technique was applied to procure cells from defined regions. Genome-wide RNA profiling was performed on esophageal adenocarcinoma (n = 21), Barrett's esophagus (n = 20), esophageal squamous carcinoma (n = 9) and healthy esophageal biopsies (n = 18) using the Affymetrix Human Genome U133plus 2...

The impact of marital status on survival among patients with esophageal cancer has not been evaluated in the U.S. population in depth. The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of marital status on survival among patients diagnosed with esophageal cancer. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was utilized to identify patients diagnosed with esophageal cancer between 1973 and 2013. Cox regression analysis was performed to evaluate for association between marital status on both cancer-specific and overall survival...

Background Esophageal malignoma is among the most frequent causes for cancer-related deaths. The only definite curative therapy is esophagectomy embedded in various multimodal treatment regimens. The aim of this study was to evaluate long-term development after esophageal surgery in the last two decades in order to observe possible trends and their influence on short, medium and long term survival. Patients and Methods Cases of 301 patients who underwent esophagectomy between 1989 and 2012 were analysed retrospectively...

Dysregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) has been linked to virulence factors of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). The role of H. pylori in esophageal disease has not been clearly defined. We previously reported that H. pylori-esophageal colonization promotes the incidence of Barrett's esophagus and esophageal adenocarcinoma in vivo. Here, we studied the direct effects of H. pylori on the transformation of esophageal epithelial cells, with particular focus on whether H. pylori exerts its effects by modulating miRNAs and their downstream target genes...

BACKGROUND: Emerging preclinical evidence indicates statins, medications commonly used in the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD), inhibit proliferation, promote apoptosis and limit invasiveness of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). Population-based observational data demonstrate statin treatment after diagnosis of EAC is associated with significant reductions in all-cause and cancer-specific mortality. A feasibility study of adjuvant statin therapy following potentially curative resection for EAC has been completed, with planned progression to a full phase III, randomized controlled trial...

INTRODUCTION: Barrett's Esophagus (BE) represents an early stage in carcinogenesis leading to esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). Considerable evidence supports a major role for chronic inflammation and diverse chemokine pathways in the development of BE and EAC. METHODS: Here we utilized a IL-1b transgenic mouse model of BE and EAC and human patient imaging to analyse the importance of CXCR4 expressing cells during esophageal carcinogenesis. RESULTS: IL-1b overexpression induces chronic esophageal inflammation and recapitulates the progression to BE and EAC...

Esophageal-gastric junction adenocarcinoma (AEG) is an aggressive tumor with high incidence and dismal prognosis worldwide. Despite significant advances in therapeutic strategies, the 5-year survival rate still remains low. Diallyl disulfide (DADS), which is one of the major volatile components isolated from garlic, has been shown to have multi-targeted antitumor activities in a variety of cancer cells. However, the exact anti-metastatic effects and underlying molecular mechanisms of DADS in AEG have not been elucidated...

Extra-gonadal choriocarcinoma is an extremely rare highly malignant neoplasm with a poor prognosis. In the gastrointestinal tract it usually arises in stomach, esophagous, bowel intestine and colon. Only few cases are pure and not associated with a classic adenocarcinoma. The correlation of Crohn's disease with choriocarcinoma is not reported. We describe a case of 47-year old man with primary choriocarcinoma of the colon in a previously documented Crohn's disease.

We describe an uncommon case of a patient with a metastatic adenocarcinoma of ovarian origin presented as a gastric subepithelial tumor (SET) and that was diagnosed by endoscopic ultrasound fine-needle biopsy (EUS-FNB). Malignant gastric lesions are rarely metastatic and the primary tumor is mainly breast, lung, esophageal cancer or cutaneous melanoma. Gastric metastasis from ovarian cancer is unusual, presenting synchronously with the primary tumor but also several years later than the initial diagnosis. From an endoscopic point of view, gastric metastasis does not present specific features...

After Helicobacter pylori was identified, and its relationship with peptic ulcer disease was exactly shown, the relationship of this bacterium with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) gained momentum and discussions continue to this day. We reviewed the literature for the relationship between H. pylori and GERD. According to the existing data, there is no relationship between GERD and H. pylori presence. Successful eradication therapy does not have an impact on the emergence or exacerbation of GERD. However Barrett's esophagus and esophageal adenocarcinoma are less frequent, especially in the presence of CagA positive H...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Endoscopic surveillance of patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) is inefficient. Risk stratification of patients might improve the effectiveness of surveillance. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to identify factors associated with progression of BE without dysplasia or BE with low-grade dysplasia (LGD) to high-grade dysplasia or esophageal adenocarcinoma. METHODS: We performed a systematic search of databases through May 2016 to identify cohort studies of patients with baseline BE without dysplasia or BE with LGD that reported predictors of progression...

Bacteria may play a role in esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), although evidence is limited to cross-sectional studies. In this study, we examined the relationship of oral microbiota with EAC and ESCC risk in a prospective study nested in two cohorts. Oral bacteria were assessed using 16S rRNA gene sequencing in prediagnostic mouthwash samples from n = 81/160 EAC and n = 25/50 ESCC cases/matched controls. Findings were largely consistent across both cohorts. Metagenome content was predicted using PiCRUST...

Background: Various methods of quantifying and correlating obesity to outcomes for patients with esophageal adenocarcinoma (EA) have been evaluated. Published data suggest that quantification of adiposity may be more accurate than body mass index (BMI) as a prognostic factor. We report our analysis of adiposity as a prognostic factor in a series of patients with EA. Methods: This single institution retrospective review included patients with EA who underwent esophagectomy from 1994-2008...
