Definitive chemoradiotherapy for T4 and/or M1 lymph node squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus.
Despite its significant toxicity, this combined modality seemed to have curative potential even in cases of locally advanced carcinoma of the esophagus. Expand
Early detection of superficial squamous cell carcinoma in the head and neck region and esophagus by narrow band imaging: a multicenter randomized controlled trial.
NBI could be the standard examination for the early detection of superficial cancer in the H&N region and the esophagus between conventional white light imaging and NBI in high-risk patients. Expand
Guidelines for Diagnosis and Treatment of Carcinoma of the Esophagus April 2012 edited by the Japan Esophageal Society
These guidelines are intended for doctors who are engaged in the diagnosis and treatment of esophageal carcinoma to present the standard practice with a high regard for the principles of evidence-based medicine (EBM), and to improve the safety and results of treatment. Expand
Long-term toxicity after definitive chemoradiotherapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the thoracic esophagus.
Definitive CRT for SCC of the esophagus is effective with substantial toxicities, and additional investigation to minimize the normal tissue toxicities is warranted. Expand
Genetic polymorphisms of alcohol and aldehyde dehydrogenases, and drinking, smoking and diet in Japanese men with oral and pharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma.
The genetic polymorphisms of aldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (ALDH2), alcohol dehydrogenase-1B (ADH1B, previously called ADH2), and ADH1C (previously called ADH3) affect the metabolism of alcohol. TheExpand
Recent Advances From Basic and Clinical Studies of Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
Advances in diagnostic techniques such as magnifying endoscopy with narrow band imaging or positron emission tomography have increased the accuracy of diagnosis of ESCC and advances gained from basic and clinical research are reviewed. Expand
Narrow-band imaging in the diagnosis of colorectal mucosal lesions: a pilot study.
It is suggested that in the examination of colonic lesions the NBI system provides imaging features additional to those of both conventional endoscopy and chromoendoscopy. Expand
Association of multiple Lugol-voiding lesions with synchronous and metachronous esophageal squamous cell carcinoma in patients with head and neck cancer.
The presence of numerous irregular-shaped multiform Lugol-voiding lesions was closely associated with second primary esophageal squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and ingestion of alcohol may play an important role in the occurrence of this phenomenon. Expand
Alcohol flushing, alcohol and aldehyde dehydrogenase genotypes, and risk for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma in Japanese men.
The reliability of a simple questionnaire that asks about both current and past flushing for detecting inactive ALDH2 for detecting cancer risk is evaluated and the flushing questionnaire may be used in large-scale epidemiological studies as a surrogate marker of ALDH1 genotype to predict individual cancer risk.

Squamous cell carcinoma in situ at oropharyngeal and hypopharyngeal mucosal sites
It has been extremely difficult to detect carcinoma in situ at head and neck mucosal sites during routine endoscopy, even after numerous passes of the endoscope through the oral cavity and the pharynx. Expand
