Cancers, Vol. 11, Pages 1529: Three-Dimensional Conformal Radiotherapy-Based or Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy-Based Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy in Patients with Thoracic Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Conclusion: IMRT-based CCRT resulted in higher survival rates in patients with advanced clinical stages of TESCC (i.e., IIIA–IIIC), namely, clinical T3, clinical T4, or lymph node involvement.

Conclusions: The association between aspirin and a reduced risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is supported by strong evidence, researchers and policy makers should pay more attention to the potential merit of repositioning aspirin to prevent esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Abstract Aberrant DNA methylation leads to abnormal gene expression, making it a significant regulator in the progression of cancer and leading to the requirement for integration of gene expression with DNA methylation. Here, we identified 120 genes demonstrating an inverse correlation between DNA methylation and mRNA expression in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Sixteen key genes, such as SIX4, CRABP2, and EHD3, were obtained by filtering 10 datasets and verified in paired ESCC samples by qRT-PCR. 5-Aza-dC as a DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) inhibitor could recover their expression and inhibit clonal gro...

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is a common malignancy with poor prognosis and survival rate. To identify meaningful long non-coding RNA (lncRNA), microRNA (miRNA), and messenger RNA (mRNA) modules related to the ESCC prognosis, The Cancer Genome Atlas-ESCC was downloaded and processed, and then, a weighted gene co-expression network analysis was applied to construct lncRNA co-expression networks, miRNA co-expression networks, and mRNA co-expression networks. Twenty-one hub lncRNAs, seven hub miRNAs, and eight hub mRNAs were clarified. Additionally, a competitive endogenous RNAs network was constructed, and the e...

Background: Lymph node (LN) metastasis is the most important prognostic factor in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Traditional clinical factor and existing methods based on CT images are insufficiently effective in diagnosing LN metastasis. A more efficient method to predict LN status based on CT image is needed.Methods: In this multicenter retrospective study, 411 patients with pathologically confirmed ESCC were registered from two hospitals. Quantitative image features including handcrafted-, computer vision-(CV-), and deep-features were extracted from preoperative arterial phase CT images for each patient. A h...
