The prognostic value of TP53 mutations in oesophageal adenocarcinoma: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Conclusions Patients with OAC and TP53 gene mutations have reduced overall survival compared with patients without these mutations, and this effect is independent of tumour stage.

We examined whether body mass index (BMI) changes in adulthood, prior to disease onset, are associated with overall survival among esophageal adenocarcinoma patients.MethodsWe included 285 histologically confirmed patients with a complete baseline BMI questionnaire. Using extended Cox regression models, we obtained adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) for the associations between overall survival and BMI at diagnosis, BMI 6  months before diagnosis, self‐reported average adult BMI, and ΔBMI (BMI 6 months before diagnosis minus average adult BMI), categorized into tertiles

Conclusions: Endotherapy is successful in most patients, but multiple sessions are usually required and disease progression can occur. Once CRIM is achieved, recurrence is common and mandates continued endoscopic follow-up. QOL is impaired with endotherapy, but alimentary satisfaction and oncologic outcomes support esophageal preservation with endotherapy for patients with HGD or IMC.

This study assesses survival improvement across a decade (2004 –2013) among patients with metastatic gastrointestinal cancers in a real-world setting.MethodsSurveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database was accessed and patients with metastatic gastrointestinal carcinomas who have received any form of systemic therapy were included. Patients were grouped into three cohorts based on the year of diagnosis (cohort-1: 2004 –2006; cohort-2: 2008–2010; cohort-3: 2012–2013). Overall survival was compared among the three cohorts for each disease site using Kaplan-Meier survival estimates.Result...

ConclusionThe incidence of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma has decreased significantly over the past four decades in the U.S., while the incidence of adenocarcinoma has increased, particularly among men. Overall, the long ‐term survival of patients with esophageal cancer is poor but it has improved over the past decades, especially for the localized disease.Key pointsSignificant findings of the studyThe incidence of esophageal cancer has decreased at an annual percentage change of 1.23% since 2004. The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma has sharply increased since 1973 and surpassed the rate of squamous cell cance...

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a group of non–protein-coding transcripts exceeding 200 nucleotides in length, which are emerging as key players in various fundamental biological processes. Furthermore, it is increasingly recognized that mutation and dysregulation of lncRNAs contribute importantly to a variety of human diseases, particularly human cancers. Previous studies have revealed that altered lncRNAs have a close association with tumorigenesis, metastasis, prognosis and diagnosis of cancers. The present review aims to exhibit a brief overview of the associated reports of lncRNAs in cancers, including colorec...

This study was conducted in order to determine the optimal timing of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) for prediction of pathologic complete response (pCR) to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) for esophageal cancer.MethodsPatients with esophageal adenocarcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma who planned to undergo nCRT followed by surgery were enrolled in this prospective study. Patients underwent six DW-MRI scans: one baseline scan before the start of nCRT and weekly scans during 5 weeks of nCRT. Relative changes in mean apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values between the baseline scans and the sca...

CONCLUSION: We demonstrated in this study that dose escalation using IMRT in combination with platin-based chemotherapy as a definitive treatment for esophageal carcinoma is safe and results in higher loco-regional and control survival when compared to previously reported data.

Esophageal Adenocarcinoma (EAC) is one of the most common gastrointestinal tumors in the world. However, molecular prognostic systems are still lacking for EAC. Hence, we developed an Online consensus Survival analysis web server for Esophageal Adenocarcinoma (OSeac), to centralize published gene expression data and clinical follow up data of EAC patients from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO). OSeac includes 198 EAC cases with gene expression profiling and relevant clinical long-term follow-up data, and employs the Kaplan Meier (KM) survival plot with hazard ratio (HR) and log rank test to e...

Abstract n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) express anti-inflammatory properties and prevent tumor progression. Conversely, n-6 PUFAs exhibit carcinogenic properties. Recent epidemiologic studies have examined the association of fish with upper gastrointestinal cancer risk, but the associations with n-3 and n-6 PUFA subtypes remain unclear. Utilizing the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study (1995-2011), we prospectively investigated the associations of PUFA subtypes, ratios, and fish with the incidence of head and neck (HNC, n=2,453), esophageal (n=855 adenocarcinoma, EA, and n=267 squamous cell carcinoma, ESCC), a...
