Impact of prior malignancy on outcomes of stage IV esophageal carcinoma: SEER based study.

CONCLUSION: Prior malignancy does not adversely impact survival of stage IV esophageal cancer. These results should be taken into consideration when designing clinical trials. PMID: 29316808 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract 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. A fixed-effect model, or in the presence of heterogeneity, random- effect model was applied to calculate the combined ORs. ...

CONCLUSIONS: The combination of PET and CTP parameters (FMP) showed no significant prognostic value. Significant correlations were only found between MTT and MTV, which indicates a possible perfusional/metabolic coupling. Therefore, pre-therapeutic CTP and PET- parameters provide complementary information about the pre-therapeutic tumour status and are not interchangeable. Only CTP parameters might be able to predict complete histopathological regression. On the other hand, only PET parameters are correlated with staging.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the association between intraoperative opioid consumption and survival in patients with adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. METHODS: Records of patients who had undergone esophageal cancer surgery between January 2000 and January 2017 were reviewed. Comparisons were made between patients who received high versus low intraoperative doses of opioids. Groups were divided using the recursive partitioning method. Multicovariate Cox proportional hazards models were fitted to evaluate the impact of intraoperative opioid use on recurrence-free survival (RFS)...

Authors: Simpong DL, Asmah RH, Krampah C, Akakpo PK, Adu P, Asante DB, Naporo S, Adjei AA, Gyasi RK Abstract The prognosis of gastric and oesophageal adenocarcinoma remains generally poor. However, mounting evidence suggests a positive role of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER-2) expression in the prognosis of patients with these cancers. In this work, the patterns of HER-2 protein expression were determined in patients with gastric or oesophageal adenocarcinoma. Retrospectively, we reviewed records of gastric and oesophageal biopsies received from 2008 to 2012 and their corresponding archived formalin-...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Increasing evidence has shown the critical role of long non-coding RNA cytoskeleton regulator (CYTOR) in cancers. The expression of CYTOR is reported to be up-regulated in many kinds of cancers, such as gastric cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, colon cancer, lung adenocarcinoma, oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma and renal cell carcinoma. Here, we summarized related studies and performed a meta-analysis to investigate the prognostic value of CYTOR in multiple cancers. METHODS: Eligible studies were retrieved from PubMed, Embase and Cochrane Library databases, and the role of CYT...

Conclusions: Serum SCCA-IgM determination allows the identification of patients at risk for BE/EAC and the stratification of BE patients in subgroups with different cancer risk. Because of the still limited number of controls, large, prospective studies are required to confirm this evidence.

CONCLUSION: SCC is still the most prevalent oesophageal cancer (OC) without an increase in the ratio of AC to SCC. The diagnosis of squamous cell dysplasia is concordant with previously cited rates. Barrett's oesophagitis remains uncommon. Resection rates for OC are low but similar to other South African referring centers. PMID: 29638088 [PubMed - in process]

In this report, we demonstrate that we can partially recreate the miR-145 effects in EAC by knock down of the expression of c-Myc, which is one of the targets of miR-145. Knocking down of c-Myc expression resulted in upregulation of integrin subunits α5 and β3. Finally, we demonstrated that integrin α5 expression correlates to fibronectin attachment potential whereas integrin β3 expression correlates with resistance to anoikis and invasion potential. Finally, we demonstrate that expression of miR-145 in esophageal adenocarcinoma cell line (SK-GT-4) enhances tumor growth and metastasis in a NOD/SCID xe...

Authors: Wu B, Bai C, Du Z, Zou H, Wu J, Xie W, Zhang P, Xu L, Li E Abstract Arachidonic acid (AA) and its metabolites are involved in the development and progression of inflammation and tumors in various tissues. We investigated the protein-protein interaction network (PPIN) of key enzymes in AA metabolism and their interacting proteins, as well as their expression patterns in different types of esophageal disease, involving esophagitis, Barrett's esophagus, adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. PPINs were constructed to illustrate the key enzymes and their interacting proteins along the metabolic cascade. T...
