Based on the current promising results with irinotecan and cetuximab in patients with recurrent metastatic colorectal cancer, and the excellent results of Irinotecan and 5-FU in gastric cancer , the present clinical study to evaluate the overall response rate, the time to progression and the overall survival of the combined treatment of cetuximab and irinotecan and 5-FU in patients with esophagogastric cancer is urgently needed.
Cetuximab will be analysed with biological markers

Esophagogastric junction outflow obstruction (EGJOO) may be due to anatomical abnormalities but it is unclear how to evaluate them after high resolution manometry (HRM). We aimed to determine 1) clini...
STOMACH herniation located at or near the diaphragmatic opening for the ESOPHAGUS, esophageal hiatus. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is above the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a SLIDING HIATAL HERNIA. When the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION is below the DIAPHRAGM, it is called a PARAESOPHAGEAL HIATAL HERNIA.
A condition where the stomach wall becomes thickened, rubbery and loses its ability to distend. The stomach assumes a "leather bottle" shape. It is most often seen in adenocarcinoma of the stomach. The term is often used synonymously with diffuse adenocarcinoma of the stomach.
The area covering the terminal portion of ESOPHAGUS and the beginning of STOMACH at the cardiac orifice.
That part of the STOMACH close to the opening from ESOPHAGUS into the stomach (cardiac orifice), the ESOPHAGOGASTRIC JUNCTION. The cardia is so named because of its closeness to the HEART. Cardia is characterized by the lack of acid-forming cells (GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS).
The physiologic or functional barrier to GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX at the esophagogastric junction. Sphincteric muscles remain tonically contracted during the resting state and form the high-pressure zone separating the lumen of the ESOPHAGUS from that of the STOMACH.

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...
