Gastrointestinal cancer is one of the major causes of death worldwide. Hereditary gastrointestinal cancer syndromes constitute about 5-10% of all cancers. About 20-25% of undiagnosed cases have a possible hereditary component, which is not yet established. In the last few decades, the advance in genomics has led to the discovery of multiple cancer predisposition genes in gastrointestinal cancer. Physicians should be aware of these syndromes to identify high-risk patients and offer genetic testing to prevent...
One of the critical mechanisms of gastrointestinal cancer pathogenesis is the silencing of death associated protein kinase 1 (DAPK1), which could be caused by aberrant methylation of the promoter. However, the relationship between DAPK1 methylation and the risk of gastrointestinal cancer is still controversial. Hence, we conducted this study to determine the potential correlation.
The prevalence of gastrointestinal metastasis of lung cancer is low. The aim of the present study was to analyze the frequency and clinical characteristics of metastases to the gastrointestinal tract by retrospectively assessing the clinical records of 2,066 patients with lung cancer. A total of 7 patients (0.33%) were diagnosed with gastrointestinal metastasis, including 4 patients with adenocarcinoma, 1 patient with large cell carcinoma and 2 patients with pleomorphic carcinoma. Furthermore, 3 of the pati...
Gastrointestinal cancers are a global public health problem, which represent a vast majority of all cancer-caused deaths in both men and women. On the other hand, viral pathogens have been long implicated as etiological factors in the onset of certain human cancers, including gastrointestinal tumors. In this regard, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), Epstein - Barr Virus (EBV) and John Cunningham Virus (JCV) have been more strongly suggested to be involved in gastrointestinal carcinogenesis; so that, the associat...
Omega-3 fatty acids are widely used in nutritional support. However, whether parenteral supplementation with ω-3 fatty acids is effective for gastrointestinal cancer patients remains uncertain. This study assessed the effects of this form of parenteral nutrition on immune function and clinical outcomes in postoperative gastrointestinal cancer patients.
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. In Brazil, it is the leading cause of cancer in the gastrointestinal tract.
To study the influence of esophageal cancer surgeon volume upon mortality from upper gastrointestinal emergencies.
Risk of gastrointestinal events with newly approved (after 2011) vascular endothelial growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors in cancer patients: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
We performed a meta-analysis to systematically review the gastrointestinal (GI) events (diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, anorexia) of five newly approved (after 2011) VEGFR-TKIs in cancer patients.
Immune check-point blockade agents have shown clinical activity in cancer patients but are associated with immune-related adverse events that could limit their development. The aim of this study was to describe the gastrointestinal immune-related adverse events (GI-irAE) in patients with cancer treated with anti-PD-1.
The diagnosis of autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility requires a high level of clinical suspicion when standard work-up is unrevealing. We report the case of a 56-year-old male patient with history of tobacco use and a subacute presentation of weight loss, vomiting and cerebellar ataxia. The discovery of paraneoplastic type 1 antineuronal nuclear antibodies and neuronal acetylcholine receptor antibodies led to further directed imaging and diagnostic studies in spite of prior negative chest imaging. Bronc...
Upper gastrointestinal cancers are common and account for a high proportion of cases of cancer-related morbidity and mortality. Combined-modality therapy with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy is standard treatment for esophageal and gastroesophageal junction cancers. For gastric cancer, the need to include radiation therapy appears to depend on the quality of the surgery performed. Radiation therapy plays an uncertain role in the surgical management of pancreatic cancer, and the results of ongoi...
Targeting angiogenesis has been considered a promising treatment of choice for a large number of malignancies, including gastrointestinal cancers. Bevacizumab is an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) being used for this purpose. However, treatment efficacy is largely questioned. Telomerase activity, responsible for cancer cell immortality, is detected in 85-95% of human cancers and is considered a potential regulator of VEGF. The aim of our study was to investigate the interrelationship bet...
There is a high demand for noninvasive screening tools for gastrointestinal cancer (GIC) detection, and GIC-specific markers are required for such purposes. It is established that induction of the telomerase reverse transcriptase gene (TERT) coupled with telomerase activation is essential for cancer development/progression and aberrant TERT promoter methylation of specific 5'-C-phosphate-G-3' (CpGs) has been linked to TERT induction in oncogenesis. Here we analyzed TERT promoter methylation in fecal samples...
ABO blood type is an inherited characteristic. The associations between ABO blood type and risk of all cancer and specific cancers were examined in a prospective cohort study of 18,244 Chinese men enrolled in 1986. During the 25 years of follow-up, 3,973 men developed cancer including 964 lung cancers, 624 colorectal cancers, 560 gastric cancers, 353 liver cancers, and 172 urinary bladder cancers. Hazard ratios (HR) for all cancer and specific cancers by ABO blood type were calculated using Cox proportional...
To assess the comparative efficacy and safety of polysaccharide K (PSK), with or without chemotherapy, for patients with gastrointestinal cancer (GIC) through a systematic review and network meta-analysis.
: Due to their ease of use, the direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are an attractive treatment option for cancer-associated venous thromboembolism (VTE) and have been readily adopted by many clinicians. A recent published study comparing a DOAC (edoxaban) to the current standard-of-care low molecular weight heparin dalteparin for the treatment of cancer-associated thrombosis showed that edoxaban was noninferior to dalteparin for recurrent VTE, but the risk of major bleeding was higher. We present three pati...
The aim of the study was to evaluate sarcopenia as a predictor of postoperative risk of major and total complications after surgery for gastrointestinal cancer.
General population screening for colorectal cancer starts at 50, and incidence rates of rectal cancer in patients over 50 years old are decreasing. However, incidence of rectal cancer under age 50 is increasing. This paper analyzes short-and long-term outcomes for rectal cancer patients under 50 years of age.
Gastrointestinal cancer accounts for approximately 8% of all canine malignancies. Early detection of cancer may have a tremendous impact on both treatment options and prognosis. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a class of noncoding RNAs that can be found stably expressed in body fluids and feces, have been suggested as valuable human cancer biomarkers.
Aspirin (ASA) is a drug that can cause gastrointestinal lesions and symptoms. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the most prevalent type of cancer in Western countries. We assessed the effect of aspirin on the diagnostic accuracy of the faecal immunochemical test (FIT) for CRC and/or advanced neoplasia (AN) in patients undergoing colonoscopy for gastrointestinal symptoms.
Malnutrition is a common complication in head, neck and lung cancer patients, particularly in cases of gastrointestinal system (GIS) cancer. Therefore, an assessment of malnutrition is crucial for early nutritional interventions. It was conducted as a cross-sectional study to evaluate nutritional status of adult cancer patients.
Fluoropyrimidines, including 5-fluororacil (5-FU), cause gastrointestinal damage in the clinical setting and might affect the gastrointestinal absorption of concomitantly administered drugs. We aimed to evaluate the effects of fluoropyrimidine-induced gastrointestinal damage on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of dabigatran etexilate (DABE), an anticoagulant, in rats with gastrointestinal damage induced by the repeated oral administration of 5-FU.
Each year, almost 4.1 million people are diagnosed with gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. Due to late detection of this disease, the mortality is high, causing approximately 3 million cancer-related deaths annually, worldwide. Although the incidence and survival differs according to organ site, earlier detection and improved prognostication have the potential to reduce overall mortality burden from these cancers. Epigenetic changes, including aberrant promoter DNA methylation, are common events in both cancer ...
