Severe septic complications are the major cause of operative mortality in patients with esophageal cancer. We examined the levels of acute phase proteins together with infection-related complications after surgery in a large number of patients with esophageal cancer and compared them with a group of patients with gastric cancer and healthy controls. Elevations in α1-antitrypsin, α1-acidglycoprotein, haptoglobin and ceruloplasmin were evident in patients with esophageal cancer, being more… CONTINUE READING
