Patterns of recurrence after trimodality therapy for esophageal cancer.
Patterns of failure after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy and surgery for esophageal cancer are poorly defined. All patients in the current study were treated with trimodality therapy for nonmetastatic esophageal cancer from 1995 to 2009. Locoregional failure included lymph node failure (NF), anastomo...
Determinants of alpha-fetoprotein levels in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma: implications for its clinical use.
α-Fetoprotein (AFP) is a biomarker commonly used in the management of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), although the possible determinants of its serum levels in these patients have not been adequately explored. For this study, the authors evaluated the relevance of demographic, clinical...
Consensus statement released for treating melanoma patients with immunotherapy.
Epigenetic silencing of Id4 identifies a glioblastoma subgroup with a better prognosis as a consequence of an inhibition of angiogenesis.
The promoter of Id4 was methylated in 23 of 62 (37%) GBMs. In methylated GBMs, Id4 mRNA was significantly reduced, compared with unmethylated GBMs (P = .0002). A significant reduction of protein expression was detected in all hypermethylated cases. GBMs with methylated Id4 showed a significant reduc...

International field testing of the reliability and validity of the EORTC QLQ-BM22 module to assess health-related quality of life in patient...
The final QLQ-BM22 module contains 22 items and 4 scales assessing Painful Sites, Painful Characteristics, Functional Interference, and Psychosocial Aspects. Results confirmed the validity, reliability, cross-cultural applicability, and sensitivity of the 22-item EORTC QLQ-BM22. It is therefore reco...
Clinical outcomes of oncologic gastrointestinal resections in patients with cirrhosis.
Resection of GI malignancy in cirrhotics is associated with poor early postoperative and transitional outcomes, with severity of liver disease being the primary determinant of postoperative mortality. These data suggest that GI cancer operations can be performed safely in well-selected cirrhotic pat...
