BACKGROUND [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose with positron-emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) scans were used to assess morphological and metabolic tumour response after chemotherapy in metastatic colorectal cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-five patients were evaluated after 4 courses of chemotherapy (+/-target therapy), and among them 20(More)
OBJECTIVE The study objectives were to analyze the impact of the number of lymph nodes (LNs) reported as resected (NLNr) and the number of LNs invaded (NLNi) on the prognosis of esophageal cancer (EC) after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy. BACKGROUND Pathological LN status is a major disease prognostic factor and marker of surgical quality. The impact of(More)
PURPOSE Although often investigated in locally advanced esophageal cancer (EC), the impact of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NCRT) in early stages is unknown. The aim of this multicenter randomized phase III trial was to assess whether NCRT improves outcomes for patients with stage I or II EC. METHODS The primary end point was overall survival. Secondary(More)
PURPOSE Elderly patients form a heterogeneous population. Evaluation of geriatric factors may help evaluate a patient's health status to better adapt treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS Elderly patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) were randomly assigned to receive fluorouracil (FU) -based chemotherapy either alone or in(More)
Neuroblastoma (NB) rarely occurs in adults, and less than 10% of the cases occur in patients older than 10 years. Currently, there are no standard treatment guidelines for adult NB patients. We report the case of a young man suffering from NB in adulthood with multiple recurrences. Treatment included multiple resections, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. This(More)
