The objective of this work has been to analyse the repartition of platinum (Pt) tissular levels within the tumour (T), the peritumoral adjacent non-tumoral area (P) and distant healthy tissue of the same anatomical zone (H) in oesophagus cancer. Forty-two biopsies (congruent to 5 mg) have been performed under endoscopy and after informed consent in 11 patients (mean age 61 yr, range 43-74) with squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus treated by the neoadjuvant chemotherapy protocol including… CONTINUE READING
