BACKGROUND: The term big data refers to databases that include large amounts of information used in various areas of knowledge. Currently, there are large databases that allow the evaluation of postoperative evolution, such as the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP), the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) National Inpatient Sample (NIS), and the National Cancer Database (NCDB). The aim of this review was to evaluate the clinical impact of information obtained from these registries regarding gastroesophageal surgery...

PURPOSE: To explore the potential benefit and complementary value of a multiparametric approach using diffusion-weighted (DW-) and dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE-) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for prediction of response to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) in esophageal cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Forty-five patients underwent both DW-MRI and DCE-MRI prior to nCRT (pre), during nCRT (week 2-3) (per) and after completion of nCRT, but prior to esophagectomy (post)...

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death with poor prognosis in China. Identifying novel targeted therapies in ESCC is urgently needed. The aberrant activation of NF-κB signalling pathway is critical for prognosis and recurrence of ESCC, which make it a potential target in the treatment of ESCC. Here, we found that pristimerin inhibited ESCC cell proliferation, migration, invasion, induced cell apoptosis, and eliminated cancer stem-like cells (CSCs). It also showed a synergistic effect on ESCC when combined with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)...

Objective: Preoperative nutritional status of patients is closely associated with their recovery after the surgery. This study aims to ascertain the impact exerted by the nutritional risk screening on clinical outcome of patients with esophageal cancer. Methods: 160 patients with esophageal cancer aged over 60, having got therapy at the First Hospital of Jilin University from Jun 2016 to Feb 2017 were evaluated by adopting the NRS2002. 80 cases of patients got active therapy of nutritional support, and the other patients not supported nutritionally were selected as the control group...

The direct anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects of local anesthetics have been well documented in various cancers. However, whether local anesthetics affect cancer metastasis and their underlying molecular mechanisms are not well understood. In this work, we show that ropivacaine at the clinically relevant concentration significantly inhibits esophageal cancer cell migration. Interestingly, ropivacaine at the same concentration does not display inhibitory effects on esophageal cancer cell growth and survival...

Esophageal cancer (EC) is rapidly increasing in incidence in the United States. Genetic changes associated with the development of EC involve the p16, p53, and APC genes. Human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER-2) overexpression is seen in gastroesophageal junction carcinoma and a subset gastric carcinoma (GC). Interestingly, up to 50% cases of GC are related to Helicobacter pylori infection and up to 16% are related to EBV infection. Microsatellite instability is observed in up to 39% of GC and cell free nucleic acid analysis provides additional opportunities for diagnosis and prognosis of disease...

BACKGROUND: Standard treatment for unresectable esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) without distant metastasis is definitive chemoradiotherapy (dCRT), in which the incidence of esophageal fistula (EF) is reported to be 10-12%. An ad hoc analysis of JCOG0303, a phase II/III trial of dCRT for patients with unresectable ESCC (including non-T4b), suggested that esophageal stenosis is a risk factor for EF. However, risk factors for EF in patients limited to T4b ESCC treated with dCRT have yet to be clarified...

BACKGROUND: We assessed the association between tissue klotho protein expression and the risk and progression of malignancies. METHODS: We searched the electronic databases for the studies regarding the relationship between tissue klotho protein expression and risk/progression of malignancies through January 2018. We calculated the pooled odds ratios (ORs) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs) to evaluate the impact of tissue klotho protein expression on malignancies...

Due to different disease background of gastric stump cancer(GSC) patients (benign or malignant lesion, reconstruction of digestive tract, etc.), the GSC surgical procedure and the difficulty of lymphadenectomy are also different. The extent of radical lymphadenectomy for gastric stump cancer should extend beyond D2 lymphadenectomy, according to the different backgrounds of initial disease, reconstructions, and tumor location. A lymphadenectomy should include the lymph nodes in anterior (No.17) and posterior (No...

There is an increasing role of surgery even in metastatic tumor stages. In colorectal cancer patients with limited metastases, complete cytoreduction is able to offer long-term survival in synchronic as well as metachronic situations. In tumors of the upper gastrointestinal tract (UGIT), however, the impact of surgery in metastatic disease remains to be clarified. Even though several retrospective studies suggest prolonged survival, surgery is not recommended by the current German S3 guidelines for tumors of the UGIT...

PURPOSE: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) results from chronic inflammation/cirrhosis. Unfortunately, despite use of radiological/serological screening techniques, HCC ranks as a leading cause of cancer deaths. Our group has used alterations in high order chromatin as a marker for field carcinogenesis and hence risk for a variety of cancers (including colon, lung, prostate, ovarian, esophageal). In this study we wanted to address whether these chromatin alterations occur in HCC and if it could be used for risk stratification...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the regulatory effect of long non-coding ribonucleic acid (lncRNA) FER1L4 on biological behaviors of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cells, such as proliferation and invasion. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The expressions of FER1L4 were detected in 42 pairs of ESCC tissues and corresponding para-carcinoma tissues and 5 kinds of ESCC cell lines via quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Polyethyleneimine (PEI) and liposomes were used for FER1L4 expression or interference elimination assays, respectively...

NY-ESO-1 or New York esophageal squamous cell carcinoma 1 is a well-known cancer-testis antigen (CTAs) with re-expression in numerous cancer types. Its ability to elicit spontaneous humoral and cellular immune responses, together with its restricted expression pattern, have rendered it a good candidate target for cancer immunotherapy. In this review, we provide background information on NY-ESO-1 expression and function in normal and cancerous tissues. Furthermore, NY-ESO-1-specific immune responses have been observed in various cancer types; however, their utility as biomarkers are not well determined...

LESSON LEARNED: Panitumumab plus irinotecan is not active for the treatment of esophageal adenocarcinoma. BACKGROUND: Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is a lethal cancer with increasing incidence. Panitumumab (Pa) is a fully humanized IgG2 monoclonal antibody against human EGFR. Cetuximab (Cx) combined with irinotecan (Ir) is active for second-line treatment of colorectal cancer. This phase II study was designed to evaluate Pa plus Ir as second-line therapy for advanced EAC...
