Abstract Objective This study was conducted to investigate the efficacy and safety of using a concurrent neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (a XELOX regimen) to treat adenocarcinoma of the gastroesophageal junction. Methods Seventy-six patients having resectable adenocarcinoma at the gastroesophageal junction (T3/4, N+, M0) were recruited to participate and randomly assigned to either a chemoradiotherapy group or a surgery group. Patients in the chemoradiotherapy group were orally given capecitabine (1,000mg/m 2 , twice daily for 14 days, days 1–14) and intravenous oxaliplatin (130mg/m 2 on day 1) for 2 cycles. Radiotherapy was performed with a total of 45Gy administered in 25 sessions for 5 weeks. Patients in the surgery group received only surgical intervention. Results In the concurrent chemoradiotherapy group, the overall response rate was 55.6% (20/36), tumor control rate was 100% and a pathological complete response was achieved in 16.7% (6/36). The entire chemoradiotherapy group had R0 resections as did 80% of the surgery group (32/40) ( P Conclusions Concurrent neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy administration increased the rate of R0 resection and demonstrated favorable safety in patients with siewert ii or iii adenocarcinoma at the gastroesophageal junction. These results support the use of neoadjunctive chemoradiotherapy in the treatment of adenocarcinoma of the gastroesophageal junction.

Gastroesophageal cancers (such as esophageal, gastric and gastroesophageal-junction -GEJ- lesions) are worldwide a leading cause of death being relatively rare but highly aggressive. In the past years, a clear shift in the location of upper gastrointestinal tract tumors has been recorded, both affecting the scientific research and the modern clinical practice. The integration of pre- or peri-operative multimodal approaches, as radiotherapy and chemotherapy (often combined), seems promising to fu...

Background The prognosis for stage 3 gastric cancer is not satisfactory, even with S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy. A randomized phase II trial was conducted to compare two and four courses of neoadjuvant S-1/cisplatin (SC) and paclitaxel/cisplatin (PC) using a two-by-two factorial design for locally advanced gastric cancer. The primary endpoint was overall survival. We clarified the impact of these regimens on the secondary endpoints, including the clinical and pathological responses, chemotherapy-re...

Background The prognosis of patients with gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma is poor. There is conflicting evidence regarding effects of preoperative chemotherapy on survival and other outcomes. Methods We conducted a meta-analysis with aggregate and individual patient data (IPD) to assess the effect of preoperative chemotherapy for gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma on survival and other outcomes. Two independent reviewers identified eligible randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing chemotherapy...

Aerobic exercise training (AET) is an effective adjunct therapy to attenuate the adverse side-effects of adjuvant chemotherapy in women with early breast cancer. Whether AET interacts with the antitumor efficacy of chemotherapy has received scant attention. We carried out a pilot study to explore the effects of AET in combination with neoadjuvant doxorubicin–cyclophosphamide (AC+AET), relative to AC alone, on: (i) host physiology [exercise capacity (VO2 peak), brachial artery flow-mediated dilat...

Esophagogastric junction (EGJ) adenocarcinomas are usually classified into one of the three categories of the Siewert system. The clinicopathological features of EGJ adenocarcinomas vary according to this classification scheme. The lymphatic flow in EGJ tumors of any type is mainly toward the abdomen, and nodal metastasis to the upper or middle mediastinum from Siewert type II or III tumors is relatively uncommon. Thus, the transhiatal approach is regarded as the standard in surgery for Siewert ...

response. The 1-, 2-, and 3-year disease-free survivals were 83.4%, 70%, and 52.2%. The 1-, 3-, 5-year overall survivals were 88.5%, 67.5%, and 51.2%, respectively. Although a complete pathologic response (ypT0N0M0) was achieved in 7 patients, 28.6% of them demonstrated recurrence of the tumor within 6 months after curative surgery. Conclusion: CCRTx rather than CTx appears to be more effective for achieving good pathologic response. Although favorable pathologic response has been achieved after...

Abstract Purpose: Supposedly, prostaglandin analogs (PGA) could reduce the central corneal thickness (CCT), while topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (TCAI) could increase CCT. The aim of the study was to evaluate clinically significant CCT effects in patients treated with PGA or TCAI. Methods: At least 50 glaucomatous patients were saved on the Italian Glaucoma Register from 16 different glaucoma centers. About 816 glaucomatous patients were found in the register; of these, 316 were recruited...

To examine toxicity and outcomes for patients treated with preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for gastric cancer. Patients with gastroesophageal (GE) junction (Siewert type II and III) or gastric adenocarcinoma who underwent neoadjuvant CRT followed by planned surgical resection at Duke University between 1987 and 2009 were reviewed. Overall survival (OS), local control (LC) and disease-free survival (DFS) were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Toxicity was graded according to the Commo...

BACKGROUND To analyze whether neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) could improve the survival for patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction compared with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (nCT). Both neoadjuvant chemotherapy alone and chemoradiotherapy before surgery have been shown to improve overall long-term survival for patients with adenocarcinoma in the esophagus or esophagogastric junction compared to surgery alone. It remains controversial whether nCRT is superior to nCT. METHO...

This study aimed to investigate the efficacy and safety of concurrent neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) plus apatinib in treating locally advanced, HER2-negative, Siewert's type II-III adenocarcinoma of esophagogastric junction (AEG) patients. Thirty eligible patients were analyzed in this single-arm, open-label, phase II trial. Patients received neoadjuvant regimen as follows: two cycles of apatinib (orally, 250 mg/day on day 1-28), two cycles of capecitabine (orally, 1,000 mg/m2 twice daily ...

Background: This is the first meta-analysis to study optimal radiation dose in the setting of concurrent neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (cnCRT) for esophageal cancer (EC). We sought to compare outcomes between high dose radiotherapy (HDRT) [>48.85 Gy biologically effective dose (BED)] group and low dose radiotherapy (LDRT) (≤48.85 Gy BED) for patients with EC receiving cnCRT. Methods: Medline, Embase, and Cochrane databases were searched independently by two members of our team on August 07, 2017...

Background: Neoadjuvant chemoradiation (CRT) remains controversial in the treatment of the oesophagus or gastro-oesophageal junction (GOJ) carcinomas. Methods: We conducted a meta-analysis to assess the efficacy and safety of Neoadjuvant CRT plus surgery comparing with neoadjuvant CT plus surgery or surgery alone. Feasible studies were searched from electronic databases. The outcomes of survival, R0 resection rate and adverse effects were analyzed. The outcomes were measured with relative risk (...

Neoadjuvant radiation therapy or chemoradiotherapy followed by surgery has the potential to improve patient survival by reducing the risk of locoregional and distant metastasis of gastric cardiac cancer in both thoracic and abdominal organs. Because of the limited case number in prior clinical trials on the efficacy of radiation or chemoradiotherapy for gastric cardiac cancer, multicenter studies with large case numbers are urgently needed to establish an optimal therapy protocol for this cancer...
