BACKGROUND There is increased recognition that cancers of the upper GI tract comprise distinct epidemiological and molecular entities. Erlotinib has shown activity in patients with adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus/gastro-oesophageal junction (GEJ), but not in distal gastric cancer. mFOLFOX6 is one of several active regimens used to treat adenocarcinoma of(More)
Our study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of everolimus in patients with pre-treated metastatic gastric and esophagus cancers in a US-based population focusing on biomarker correlation. Patients with advanced upper GI adenocarcinomas who progressed after 1–2 prior regimens received everolimus 10 mg PO daily. The primary endpoint was disease(More)
80 Background: There is increased evidence that cancers of the upper GI tract are comprised of distinct epidemiological and molecular entities that may respond differently to anti-cancer therapy in Asian patients compared to North American patients. Everolimus, an oral inhibitor of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) showed clinical promise in a phase(More)
e16549 Background: Oncology research is limited poor accrual into clinical trials. Clinical trials networks may help to improve this by allowing investigations to be available to patients seen in practices that are far from academic centers. Also, strategies may be implemented within each practice to further enhance accrual. This thereby increases patient(More)
e20598 Background: Oncology research is limited by the very low number of patients accrued into clinical trials. Clinical trials networks may help to overcome this limitation by allowing investigations designed through academic centers to be available to patients seen in community practices that are far from these centers. This allows for increased accrual(More)
