Evaluation of Four Reconstructions After Total Gastrectomy

There are four capital reconstructions after total gastrectomy which is widely used in China. Life quality is the only standard to evaluate postoperative results of different reconstructions. In order to determine the best reconstruction after total gastrectomy, we designed this study to compare life qualities of four reconstructions.


Comparison of the Laparoscopy-Assisted Distal Gastrectomy and Open Distal Gastrectomy for Advanced Gastric Cancer

In both arms,subtotal gastrectomy (dissect more than 2/3 of stomach and total omentectomy) and D2 lymph node dissection (around common hepatic artery, celiac artery, proximal part of splenic artery (4d, 4sb), hepatoduodenal ligament, superior mesenteric vein) wiil be performed basically. As a general rule, Billroth II method will be used ...


A Collection of Clinical and Epidemiologic Data Combined With Tissue and Blood From Patients With a Diagnosis of Neuroendocrine Tumors

The purpose of this study is to establish a neuroendocrine tumor registry. A registry is a collection of information. To create this registry, the investigators would like to get information, blood and tumor samples from people with neuroendocrine tumors. By collecting this information and material, the investigators are hoping to ...

Phase N/A

Gastrectomy Plus Prophylactic Cholecystectomy in Gastric Cancer Surgery

The incidence of gallstones and gallbladder sludge is known to be higher in patients after gastrectomy than in general population. This higher incidence is probably related to surgical dissection of the vagus nerve branches and the anatomical gastrointestinal reconstruction. Therefore, some surgeons perform routine concomitant cholecystectomy during standard surgery for ...


Ph II of Capecitabine Carboplatin & Bevacizumab for Gastroesophageal Junction & Gastric Carcinoma

To investigate bevacizumab in combination with carboplatin and capecitabine for patients with unresectable or metastatic GEJ or gastric cancers. We hope that by adding bevacizumab to standard chemotherapy for this patient population we will improve Progression Free Survival by 80% over historical controls.


Epirubicin Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine or Docetaxel and Oxaliplatin in Treating Patients With Advanced Esophageal Cancer Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer or Stomach Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare the response rate in patients with advanced esophageal, gastroesophageal junction, or gastric cancer treated with epirubicin hydrochloride, oxaliplatin, and capecitabine vs docetaxel and oxaliplatin. Secondary - Compare the time to progression, survival, and quality of life of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare the toxicities ...


Screening for Gastric Cancer in High-risk Population

High Risk Population First degree relatives of patients with gastric cancer have a 1.5-fold to 3-fold increased risk of developing gastric cancer themselves (Brenner H et al, Cancer 2000;88:274-9). In relatives of gastric cancer patients who are also carriers of a CagA positive strain of H. pylori, the risk is ...

Phase N/A

Role of Routine Nasogastric Decompression After Subtotal Gastrectomy

Nasogastric decompression is an intra-operative routine in most of the time to facilitate exposure of operative field during elective subtotal gastrectomy, but whether it should be retained post-operatively is controversial. Nasogastric decompression helps to drain the gastric remnant in case there is edema around the gastrojejunostomy, ileus and delayed gastric ...


Association and Mechanism Between Cyclooxygenase-2 and Interleukin-6 in Gastric Cancer

Evidence is rapidly accumulating that chronic inflammation may contribute to carcinogenesis through multiple mechanisms in a number of malignancies, including gastric carcinoma (GC). Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), an inducible enzyme pivotal in the inflammatory response, converts arachidonic acid to the prostaglandins (PGs) required in initiating and maintaining reactions during the inflammatory process. ...

Phase N/A

Cyclooxygenase-2-Associated Factors and Gastric Carcinogenesis Mechanisms-Clinical Association and Genomic Investigation

Background: Gastric carcinoma (GC) remains among the most frequent malignancies in Taiwan as well as in the world and also one of leading causes of cancer-related death. Accumulating evidence shows that chronic inflammation leads to the occurrence of cancers, including GC, via multiple mechanisms. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) is a crucial enzyme ...
