Gastric cancer mortality rates among US and foreign-born persons: United States 2005 –2014
ConclusionsEfforts directed at reducing the prevalence of gastric cancer risk factors could help reduce the elevated burden observed among foreign-born individuals and US-born minority groups.
AbstractProximal gastrectomy should improve the late postoperative function in patients with gastric cancer located in the upper third of the stomach or esophagogastric junction. However, a standard method of esophagogastrostomy has not been established for improving the postoperative function. To prevent reflux and stenosis following proximal gastrectomy, we introduced a novel esophagogastrostomy method using a knifeless linear stapler. The stapler was inserted into holes created in both the esophagus and remnant stomach and fired proximally. A 1.5-cm incision was made from the edge of the entry hole between the staples. ...
Conclusion: Our results showed that PVT1 can inhibit the apoptosis and enhance the 5-Fu resistance of gastric cancer through the activation of Bcl2. PVT1 has the potential to serve as an indicator to predict 5-Fu treatment resistance. PMID: 31205469 [PubMed]
Conclusions: Primary carcinoma with plasmacytoid morphology is a dedifferentiated variant of adenocarcinoma or poorly cohesive carcinomas. Vimentin positive dedifferentiated-poorly cohesive carcinomas should be considered as mesenchymal-type highly malignant carcinomas. This rare histologic variant of gastrointestinal cancer might respond to anti-c-MET tyrosine kinases. PMID: 31205468 [PubMed]
In conclusion, our results suggest that patients with −181 GG and AG genotypes have an increased risk for gastric cancer and this polymorphism may be a candidate marker for predicting individuals who are at higher risk to gastric cancer. Further work with a larger sample size including other criteria such as H. pylori infection status is needed for more accuracy.
ConclusionsOur results are not supportive of Tisseel tissue sealing property on the intrathoracic oesophago-gastric anastomosis and fibrin sealant’s use cannot be justified.
This report examines why patients with a curative treatment plan for oesophago-gastric cancer do not go on to receive surgery. The National Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Audit plans to follow-up this initial investigation with further evaluation to enable specific recommendations in subsequent works.
Conclusions: Diagnostic tests ofH. pylori infection mostly followed Japanese Society forHelicobacter Research guidance, although some antibody measurements were timed inappropriately. Vonoprazan appears to increase the success rate of primary therapy.Digestion

McKenna, Virginia Senkomago, Hilda Razzaghi, Mona SaraiyaAbstractFrom 1970 to 2010 the foreign-born population in the United States has rapidly increased from 9.6 to 40.0 million individuals. Historically, differences in cancer rates have been observed between US-born and foreign-born individuals. However, comprehensive and up-to-date data on US cancer rates by birth place is lacking. To compare cancer mortality rates among foreign and US-born individuals, population-based cancer mortalit...
