Bursectomy Not Recommended as Standard Treatment for cT3/T4 Gastric Cancer

By : Cancer Therapy Advisor

Bursectomy can be safely performed without increasing the risk of morbidity or mortality among patients with cT3 or cT4 gastric cancer, though it is not recommended as a standard treatment in this setting, according to a study being presented at the ASCO 2017 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium.

‘Collateral’ lethality may offer new therapeutic approach for cancers of the pancreas, stomach and colon

By : Science Daily

Heard of collateral lethality? It’s a therapeutic strategy that uses gene deletions with no direct role in the tumor progression. A recent study published in Science Daily shows how scientists  discovered that this process can be used in novel therapy approaches for gastric cancer.

miR 1296-5p Inhibits the Migration and Invasion of Gastric Cancer Cells by Repressing ERBB2 Expression

By : PLOS One

New Plos Onestudy shows miR-1296-5p may be a tumor suppressor of the miRNA molecule in gastric cancer as well as a clinical classification marker and therapeutic target for metastasis.

Faulty DNA error correction genes set stage for familial gastric cancer

By : UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center

Published in the Gastroenterology Journal, UC Davis researchers have identified genetic variations that contribute to familial gastric cancer. Inherited mutations – which affect the PALB2, BRCA1 and RAD51C genes and have been implicated in other cancer types – impair a critical DNA repair mechanism called homologous recombination. These findings could improve preventive care and new gastric cancer therapies.

Scientists find new check for recurrence risk of gastric cancer

By : The Asahi Shimbun

Researchers have developed a technique to identify patients who are more likely to suffer a recurrence of gastric cancer based on the degree of abnormal DNA methylation.
