Bioinformatics analysis: GeneCards, Kaplan-Meier Survival, GENT, cBioPortal.The colonic ρ0 transcriptome was linked with proliferation, DNA replication, survival, tumor morphology, and cancer.

In colonic ρ0 (rho0) cells reduced mitochondrial function mediates transcriptomic alterations associated with cancer Mitochondrial reprogramming has emerged as a hallmark of cancer pathobiology. Although it is believed this reprogramming is essential for cancer cells to thrive, how it supports cancer pathobiology is unclear. We previously generated colonic ρ0 (rho0) cells with reduced mitochondrial energy function and acquired their transcriptional signature. Here, we utilized a bioinformatics

Rare gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST): omentum and retroperitoneum Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal neoplasms that arise in the gastrointestinal tract and rarely elsewhere in the abdomen. GISTs that develop outside the digestive tract are called extra-GISTs (EGISTs). The incidence of EGISTs is reported to be approximately 10% of all GISTs, and the median age is younger than that of conventional GISTs. EGISTs have similar histology (...) and immunohistochemical features as conventional GISTs, with the majority of them in the omentum and mesentery. Most GISTs harbor a kinase-activating mutation in either KIT or PDGFRA. For EGISTs, the incidence of this type of mutation is 40-50%, which is somewhat lower than for conventional GISTs. EGISTs may have a worse prognosis compared with conventional GISTs with high mitotic indices, large size, and distant metastasis including lymph node involvement. In large abdominal tumors, the visceral origin is almost

Endoscopic resection of gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumors Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors in the gastrointestinal tract, and about 60% of them are found in the stomach. With the widespread application of endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS), more and more gastric GISTs are being found in an early stage (with a relative small diameter and no metastasis), giving the chance of complete resection. Endoscopic resection such as endoscopic

An E-Learning Module to Improve Nongenetic Health Professionals’ Assessment of Colorectal Cancer Genetic Risk: Feasibility Study Nongenetic health providers may lack the relevant knowledge, experience, and communication skills to adequately detect familial colorectal cancer (CRC), despite a positive attitude toward the assessment of history of cancer in a family. Specific training may enable them to more optimally refer patients to genetic counseling.The aim of this study was to develop an e (...) module to help surgeons-in-training and gastroenterologists in recognizing a hereditary predisposition in patients with CRC. The e-learning led to improvements in attitude toward the assessment of cancer family history, knowledge on criteria for referral to genetic counseling for CRC, and comprehension of communication skills.©Kirsten Freya Lea Douma, Cora M Aalfs, Evelien Dekker, Pieter J Tanis, Ellen M Smets.

Minimally invasive surgery for gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumors Minimally invasive surgery has been increasingly performed for gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). In this review we discuss and summarize the current evidence on minimally invasive surgery for gastric GISTs. Laparoscopic resection for gastric GIST has been consistently shown to be associated with superior perioperative outcomes with no compromise in oncological outcomes when compared to open resection (...) in numerous retrospective case-control studies. It has also been shown to be safe and feasible for large tumors or tumors located in unfavorable sites. However, to date, there remains a lack of level 1 evidence from prospective randomized control trials in support of laparoscopic resection.

Surgical treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors of the stomach: current status and future perspective Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, with the majority found in the stomach. Surgical resection of the primary gastric GISTs with complete resection margin has been the forefront of curative treatment. The indications for surgical resection are usually related to symptomatic gastric GISTs at presentation. Primary (...) factors (size and mitotic index), patient factors (older age, male) and surgical factors (incomplete resection margin, tumor rupture or spillage) play an important role in stratifying the malignant potential risk of primary gastric GISTs and their chances of recurrence. The understanding of gene mutation driving the growth of GISTs and the discovery of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) has altered the surgical management of advanced and metastatic GISTs. Multi-modal therapy incorporating the surgical

209. Experience with an abdominal compression band for radiotherapy of upper abdominal tumours Full Text available with Trip Pro

Experience with an abdominal compression band for radiotherapy of upper abdominal tumours Radiotherapy outcomes are influenced by treatment delivery geometric accuracy and organ-at-risk dose. The location of abdominal structures such as the liver, kidneys and tumour volumes can be strongly influenced by respiratory motion. This increases geometric uncertainty and dose to organs-at-risk. One common method of minimising respiratory motion is abdominal compression (AC).Fifteen patients being (...) treated for radiotherapy to upper abdominal tumours were analysed. Each patient underwent 2 four-dimensional computerised tomography (4D-CT) scans, one with and one without AC with a pneumatic compression belt. Liver and kidney positions were measured on the 4DCT scans at the peak inspiratory and expiratory respiratory phases. The patient received radiation therapy treatment planned on the CT data set with the technique (compression or no compression) that provided the least respiratory motion.There

Exploration of time points and cut-off values for early tumour shrinkage to predict survival outcomes of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer treated with first-line chemotherapy using a biexponential model for change in tumour size Several studies reported that early tumour shrinkage (ETS) was associated with overall survival in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) treated with first-line chemotherapy. However, appropriate time point and cut-off value for ETS remain unclear (...) because these varied in previous studies.We investigated patients with mCRC who received FOLFOX or FOLFIRI with/without molecular-targeted agents as first-line treatment between 2005 and 2014. Using a biexponential model for change in tumour size, a relative change in the sum of the longest diameters of target lesions from baseline was estimated at a certain time point in each individual patient. Associations of survival outcomes with ETS at various time points based on various cut-off values were
