A study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of DKN-01 in combination with weekly paclitaxel in participants with refractory/recurrent esophageal or gastro-esophageal junction cancer
This study evaluates the safety and efficacy of D-CIK immune cells combined with chemotherapy after resection of esophageal cancer
The LOCARE-Trial is an investigator initiated, randomized-controlled trial with two parallel arms (n=60 each) and investigates the influence of esophageal washout on long-term outcomes in ...
This is a study of an investigational agent, pemetrexed, in combination with a standard chemotherapy drug, carboplatin, for treatment of patients with metastatic esophageal cancer.
Tumor is the primary public health problem and the incidence of esophageal cancer showed the increasing trend in the past thirty years. According to the statistics in 2015, the new onset o...
The feasibility and safety of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for superficial esophageal neoplasms extending to the cervical esophagus currently remain unknown because of the limited number ...
Dysphagia in patients with lung cancer is usually due to direct invasion from bronchogenic carcinomas or nodal localizations, while metastases from distant lung neoplasms are considered rare. We repo...
Esophageal manometry has shown its usefulness to estimate transpulmonary pressure, that is lung stress, and the intensity of spontaneous effort in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. Ho...
BACKGROUND : Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been widely used to treat superficial esophageal neoplasms (SENs). Intraoperative bleeding is one of the main concerns that makes ESD in the e...
Although most esophageal non-epithelial tumors are benign tumors, such as leiomyomas, they also include gastrointestinal tumors (GISTs); thus, a histopathological diagnosis is indispensable to determi...
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.
Circular innermost layer of the ESOPHAGUS wall that mediates esophageal PERISTALSIS which pushes ingested food bolus toward the stomach.
A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.
Disorders affecting the motor function of the UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; the ESOPHAGUS body, or a combination of these parts. The failure of the sphincters to maintain a tonic pressure may result in gastric reflux of food and acid into the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX). Other disorders include hypermotility (spastic disorders) and markedly increased amplitude in contraction (nutcracker esophagus).
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
