Outcomes of Laparoscopic Total Gastrectomy for Elderly Gastric Cancer Patients

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare the short- and long-term outcomes after laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) between elderly and non-elderly patients with gastric cancer.Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed using clinical and follow-up data from 168 patients treated with LTG for gastric cancer at our institution from January 2010 to December 2017. For this study, the short- and long-term outcomes (including tumor recurrence rate, disease-free survival rate, and overall survival rate) were compared between the elderly group (≥70 years) and non-elderly group (

AbstractTreatment options for patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC) are limited. One approach to improving survival in patients with AGC is to optimize the available agents via sequential therapy. However, clinical trial reports of first-line chemotherapy indicate that elderly patients and patients with massive ascites are less likely to receive subsequent lines of therapy. In addition, clinical trials of second- and third-line chemotherapy generally exclude these two patient populations because they are likely to have poor performance status and additional issues that are difficult to manage. Good patient management...

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are able to promote initiation, survival and maintenance of tumor growth and have been involved in gastrointestinal cancers (GICs) such as esophageal, gastric and colorectal. It is well known that blood supply facilitates cancer progression, recurrence, and metastasis. In this regard, tumor-induced angiogenesis begins with expression of pro-angiogenic molecules such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which in turn lead to neovascularization and thus to tumor growth. Another pattern of blood supply is called vasculogenic mimicry (VM). It is a reminiscent of the embryonic vascular network ...

.W.M. van Laarhoven The SOURCE prediction model predicts individualised survival conditional on various treatments for patients with metastatic oesophageal or gastric cancer. The aim of this study was to validate SOURCE in an external cohort from the Belgian Cancer Registry. Data of Belgian patients diagnosed with metastatic disease between 2004 and 2014 were extracted (n = 4097). Model calibration and discrimination (c-indices) were determined. A total of 2514 patients with oesophageal cancer and 1583 patients with gastric cancer with a median survival of 7.7 and 5.4 months, respectively, were included. The oesophagea...

Contributor : Haiwei NiSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensmiR-375 plays an irreplaceable role in regulation of neoplastic progression in gastric cancer. In order to study the mechanism by which miR-375 inhibits the stemness of gastric cancer cell lines, we need to explore the genetic program controlled by miR-375.We used microarrays to detail the global program of gene expression underlying miR-375 up-regulation and identified distinct classes of regulated genes during this process.

CONCLUSIONS EphA1 can promote the occurrence and development of GC by its selective high expression in cancer tissues and its relationship with malignant clinical features and prognosis of GC patients. The underlying potential mechanism appears to involve enhancement of the tumor microenvironment, which via drives the expression of tumor microenvironment hallmark proteins IL-6 and VEGF.
