PURPOSE When designing this trial, there was no evidence that salvage chemotherapy (SLC) in advanced gastric cancer (AGC) resulted in substantial prolongation of survival when compared with best supportive care (BSC). However, SLC is often offered to pretreated patients with AGC for anecdotal reasons. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with AGC with one or two(More)
PURPOSE The ARTIST (Adjuvant Chemoradiation Therapy in Stomach Cancer) trial was the first study to our knowledge to investigate the role of postoperative chemoradiotherapy therapy in patients with curatively resected gastric cancer with D2 lymph node dissection. This trial was designed to compare postoperative treatment with capecitabine plus cisplatin(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Korean version of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Breast-Cancer-Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-BR23). A total of 153 patients with breast cancer and 153 normal subjects completed three questionnaires of the Korean version of the EORTC(More)
BACKGROUND Combination chemotherapy with gemcitabine and a platinum-based agent is regarded as a standard treatment for patients with advanced biliary-tract cancer. Results of phase 2 trials of single-agent erlotinib in biliary-tract cancer and of gemcitabine plus erlotinib in pancreatic cancer have shown modest benefits. Therefore, we aimed to investigate(More)
Identification of critical genes which play pivotal roles in controlling tumor growth and survival will establish the basis for developing therapeutic targets. With the aim of establishing personalized medicine for treatment of solid tumors, we focused on MET amplification in gastric cancer patients, given the extreme sensitivity to c-Met inhibitor in MET(More)
The purpose of this study was to define distinctive clinical features of "nasal" and "nasal-type" NK/T cell lymphomas by assessing prognostic factors. The anatomic definition of extranasal NK/T cell lymphoma has been vague resulting in variable definitions of extranasal sites by different groups. We analysed the clinical behavior of 90 NK/T cell lymphoma(More)
BACKGROUND Primary pulmonary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a very rare neoplasm. It is represented most commonly by marginal zone B-cell lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type. Although there have been a few reviews of this lymphoma, clinical features, diagnostic procedure, optimal management and prognostic factors have not been well defined.(More)
BACKGROUND Erlotinib, in combination with gemcitabine, has shown clinical benefits in pancreatic adenocarcinoma patients. The presence of EGFR mutations and increased EGFR copy numbers in pancreatic adenocarcinoma was explored. METHODS Sixty-six pancreatic cancer patients were included in the analysis. The EGFR mutation was analyzed by DNA sequencing of(More)
PURPOSE The Adjuvant Chemoradiotherapy in Stomach Tumors (ARTIST) trial tested whether the addition of radiotherapy to adjuvant chemotherapy improved disease-free survival (DFS) in patients with D2-resected gastric cancer (GC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between November 2004 and April 2008, 458 patients with GC who received gastrectomy with D2 lymph node(More)
AIM We studied to identify the clinicopathological features, treatment outcome, and prognostic factors for patients with gastrointestinal and hepatopancreaticobiliary neuroendocrine tumor (NET). METHOD Between February 2001 and May 2006, a total of 470 patients were diagnosed with NET arising from the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, and hepatobiliary(More)
