Comparasion Between NCRT and NCT Followed by MIE for Treatment of Locally Advanced Resectable ESCC

2016-12-26 23:17:36 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the outcomes of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy versus neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by minimally invasive esophagectomy on patients with locally advanced resectable esophageal squamous cell carcinoma(cT3-4N0-1M0).


It is a prospective randomized phase III clinical trial sponsored by Shanghai Zhongshan Hospital with other eight hospitals in China participating in. 268 patients with locally advanced resectable esophageal squamous cell carcinoma(cT3-4aN0-1M0) are recruited and randomly assigned into the neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy group (NCRT group) and the neoadjuvant chemotherapy group (NCT group) according to the proportion of 1:1.The safety,efficacy of protocals and prognosis of patients are compared between the two regmens.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

A carcinoma derived from stratified squamous epithelium. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A mixed adenocarcinoma and squamous cell or epidermoid carcinoma.

Unusual tumor affecting any site of the body, but most often encountered in the head and neck. Considerable debate has surrounded the histogenesis of this neoplasm; however, it is considered to be a myoblastoma of, usually, a benign nature. It affects women more often than men. When it develops beneath the epidermis or mucous membrane, it can lead to proliferation of the squamous cells and mimic squamous cell carcinoma.
