Prediction of S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy benefit in Stage II/III gastric cancer treatment based on comprehensive gene expression analysis
AbstractBackgroundStudies to identify predictive biomarkers of adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 after gastrectomy in Stage II/III gastric cancer patients have been done; however, more clarity and understanding are needed. Our aim in the present study was to identify biomarkers predicting benefit due to S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy using comprehensive gene expression analysis.MethodsWe retrospectively analyzed 102 patients receiving adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 and 46 patients not receiving S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy after gastrectomy for gastric cancer treatment between January 2014 and December 2016.

Leveraging the Gut to Treat Metabolic Disease.
Abstract 25 years ago, the future of treating obesity and diabetes focused on end organs known to be involved in energy balance and glucose regulation, including the brain, muscle, adipose tissue, and pancreas. Today, the most effective therapies are focused around the gut. This includes surgical options, such as vertical sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, that can produce sustained weight loss and diabetes remission but also extends to pharmacological treatments that simulate or amplify various signals that come from the gut. The purpose of this Review is to discuss the wealth of approaches currentl...

ConclusionBoth LSG and LRYGB altered the composition of intestinal microbiota in Chinese obesity patients, and particularly increased the richness and evenness of microbiota. Genera belonging to phylumFirmicutes were the most altered bacteria by bariatric surgery. The procedure of LSG resulted in much more pronounced alteration of the intestinal microbiota abundance than that observed in LRYGB. While different genera were altered after LSG and LRYGB procedures, 10 genera were the common altered genera in both procedures. Bacteria altered after LSG and LRYGB were functionally associated with BMI, and with relieving of the m...

Health-related quality of life after sleeve gastrectomy equal to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass patients?
AbstractPurposeSleeve gastrectomy (SG) is the most popular type of bariatric surgery. It has often been compared to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in terms of clinical outcomes. However, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) has been sparsely studied after SG. The goal was to study HRQoL after SG using a generic (RAND-36) and an obesity-specific (impact of weight on quality of life-lite, IWQOL-lite) questionnaire and to compare the results with RYGB.MethodsHRQoL and weight were measured before and 9, 15, and 24  months after surgery.
