OBJECTIVES Although the chemokine CXCL12 and its receptor CXCR4 have been implicated in metastasis of non-small cell lung carcinoma, the prognostic significance of these molecules is poorly defined. This study aimed to determine whether expression of these molecules is associated with clinicopathologic features and disease-free survival in non-small cell(More)
BACKGROUND In patients deemed to have clinical stage I for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after computerized tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans, the utility of mediastinoscopy to detect occult mediastinal metastases is unclear. The goal of this study was to analyze the risk factors for occult mediastinal metastases in this(More)
BACKGROUND The ability to accurately predict clinical and pathological response and survival in patients undergoing preoperative chemotherapy may have a significant impact on treatment strategy for esophageal carcinoma. This study assessed the predictive accuracy of clinical response (CR) and positron emission tomography (PET) scanning in determining(More)
OBJECTIVE There has been an increase in interest in endoscopic therapy (ET) for intramucosal (T1a) or submucosal (T1b) esophageal carcinoma. The objective of the present study was to determine the prevalence of nodal metastases, lymphatic vascular invasion, and multifocal neoplasia in patients with pT1 esophageal carcinoma who underwent esophagectomy(More)
