Stomach cancer symptoms: Five signs you could have the deadly condition

STOMACH cancer does not have obvious symptoms initially. The early signs tend to be vague and easy to mistake and therefore often go unnoticed until it is too late. These five signs, however, could indicate you may have the deadly condition. What are they?

ConclusionsThe variant genotype of the TLR4 gene polymorphisms might be protective factors for H.pylori infection, while socioeconomic status is an risk factor for H. pylori infection. Urease test is a usefull diagnostic tool for H. pylori infection.

ConclusionThe present findings suggest that alterations in gastric cancer leading to ENE are not associated with alterations underpinning the molecular subgroups. Nonetheless, molecular subtyping on the basis of IHC and ISH is feasible and might become clinical routine. Thus, further studies are needed to clarify the mechanisms of extranodal extension in gastric cancer.

This study set up a platform to identify senescence-inducing anti-cancer compounds, and uncovers that DMP exerted anticancer effects by inducing cellular senescence through targeting DNA damage and associated signaling pathways in GC cancer.

Authors: Dong Z, Sun X, Xu J, Han X, Xing Z, Wang D, Ge J, Meng L, Xu X Abstract BACKGROUND Our previous research revealed that membrane type 1-matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) is overexpressed and plays a crucial role in gastric cancer (GC) progression. Exosomes are important for GC carcinogenesis, and the exosomal contents are ideal biomarkers. However, the expression of exosomal MT1-MMP mRNA in serum and its potential significance in GC remains unclear. MATERIAL AND METHODS The expression of exosomal MT1-MMP mRNA in serum of patients with GC, chronic gastritis, or atypical hyperplasia, and healthy controls was...

Conclusion: This study showed that the short-term outcome indicator textbook outcome is associated with long-term overall survival and therefore may accentuate the importance of using these indicators in clinical audits.

Endoscopic surveillance is currently recommended in patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) to detect prevalent and incident dysplasia/esophageal adenocarcinoma. This strategy is underpinned by the concepts that (1) dysplasia can be treated endoscopically to prevent early gastric cancer (EAC),1 and (2) early-stage EAC (without symptomatic dysphagia and muscularis propria invasion) can be successfully treated (endoscopically) with excellent long-term survival.2

Authors: Wang Y, Zhang B, Gao G, Zhang Y, Xia Q Abstract Guanine nucleotide exchange factor T (GEFT), a member of the Rho guanine nucleotide exchange factor family, is expressed in a variety of tumors. In the present study, the expression and clinical significance of GEFT in malignant digestive tract tumors was assessed. Tumor and adjacent control samples from 180 patients were tested. Positive GEFT expression rates were 80, 83.33 and 86.67% in esophageal squamous carcinoma (ESCC), gastric carcinoma (GC) and colorectal cancer (CRC), respectively. GEFT expression was associated with diffuse type carcinoma according ...

We describe a case of multiple cutaneous metastases from gastric cancer resembling sebaceous cysts with a synchronous melanoma, in a patient after fluoropyrimidine-based systemic chemotherapy. Melanoma occurring as a second cancer has been recognized in patients having undergone previous chemotherapy or radiation for another cancer. We can assume that the capecitabine-based chemotherapy may have played a role in the development of the melanocytic neoplasm. Our observation adds extra evidence to the link between fluoropyrimidine-based immunosuppression and the induction of melanocytes’ proliferation and transformation...

ConclusionWe suggest that esophageal bypass using pedicled jejunal pull-up “supercharging” by creating anastomoses between the jejunal and internal thoracic vessels is the optimal procedure for patients with extensive cicatricial esophageal stenosis caused by corrosive esophagitis.
