Effects of preoperative sarcopenia on postoperative complications of minimally invasive oesophagectomy for oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Conclusions: Preoperative sarcopenia is an independent risk factor for pulmonary infection after minimally invasive oesophagectomy (MIE). Evaluation of preoperative sarcopenia will thus help to prevent postoperative complications. PMID: 31372290 [PubMed]

Accurate nodal staging is crucial for esophageal cancer. A prospective study was performed to assess the value of [18F] fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) for diagnosing cervical lymph node metastasis (LNM) of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

In this study, we investigate the potential of HCPT to inhibit the growth of ESCC cells in vitro and verify its anti-tumor activity in vivo by using a patient-derived xenograft (PDX) tumor model in mice. Our study revealed the overexpression of TOP I in ESCC cells and treatment with HCPT inhibited TOP I enzymatic activity at 24 h and decreased expression at 48 h and 72 h. HCPT also induced DNA damage by increasing the expression of H2A.XS139. HCPT significantly decreased the proliferation and anchorage-independent growth of ESCC cells (KYSE410, KYSE510, KYSE30, and KYSE450). Mechanistically, HCPT inhibited the G2/M phase c...

Comparison of detection rates of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and gastric adenocarcinoma (GA) according to age groups and ALDH2 genotype between the 1993 ‐2007 screening period and the 2008‐2018 screening period in Japanese alcohol‐dependent men. The detection rates for ESCC and GA were consistently lower during the 2008‐2018 study period than during the 1993‐2007 study period regardless of age groups and ALDH2 genotype. AbstractBackgroundEsophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), head and neck SCC (HNSCC), and gastric adenocarcinoma (GA) are frequently detected at an early stage using endoscopic scr...

Using an integrated analysis of genomic and transcriptomic profiles from esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients, we had identified and a valuable immunohistochemistry panel comprisingANO1 andMMP3. Patients could be stratified into three subgroups with different risks based on the positive marker status of two genes. In addition, we constructed an immunohistochemistry ‐based nomogram, which provides improved risk stratification and might be a prognostic tool for facilitating clinical management of treatment. AbstractBackgroundThe poor outcome of patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) highlights the i...

AbstractBackgroundThe relationship between overall obesity, as measured by body mass index (BMI) and risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) has been reported to show a negative correlation. However, the relationship of ESCC, which accounts for around 90% of esophageal cancers in South Korea, with abdominal obesity, as measured by waist circumference (WC), may be different. Thus, we investigated the association between abdominal obesity and esophageal cancer in a nationwide population-based cohort.MethodsA retrospective cohort study of 22,809,722 individuals who had undergone regular health check-ups provided by ...

Authors: Zhen C, Huang J, Lu J Abstract Numerous studies have demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) are dysregulated in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Changes in miRNA expression may be associated with ESCC formation and progression. Therefore, the identification of ESCC-associated miRNAs may facilitate the development of effective therapeutic approaches for patients with ESCC. Recently, miRNA-652 (miR-652) was recognized as a cancer-associated miRNA in a number of different types of cancer. However, the expression status and roles of miR-652 in ESCC as well as the molecular mechanisms modulated or alter...

This study aimed to explore the underlying mechanism of linc01014 in oesophagus cancer gefitinib resistance. Gefitinib-resistant oesophagus squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC gefitinibR) cell lines were constructed by using different gefitinib treatment in FLO-1, KYAE-1, TE-8 and TE-5 cell lines and confirmed by MTS50 and proliferation assays. Expression of linc01014 was overexpressed/silenced in FLO-1 cells followed by gefitinib treatment, and then, the apoptosis-associated markers Bax and Bcl-2, and PI3KCA in PI3K signalling pathway were determined using Western blotting. MST50 and morphology analyses showed that ESCC gefitin...
