An analysis of temporal trends for esophageal cancer patients diagnosed in 1961–1996 in Sweden showed improvement in relative survival rates (RSRs), but data were not available on stage at diagnosis or on cancer-directed treatment.1 The present report considers temporal changes in RSRs by histology for esophageal cancer patients in the United States. The National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program of high-quality cancer registries, established in 1973… 
Esophageal Cancer: An Updated Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results Database Analysis
TLDR
The incidence of adenocarcinoma in the USA is steadily on the rise and the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma has been continually declining, while white males had an increased incidence of both types of esophageal cancer, and a higher proportion of African Americans suffered from squamouscell carcinoma.
Epidemiology and Survival of Esophageal Cancer Patients in an American Cohort
TLDR
Black race and SCC were associated with poorer survival and Clinicians should be aggressive in offering potentially curative procedures to patients and eliminating socioeconomic barriers.
Bayesian analysis of esophageal cancer mortality in the presence of misclassification
TLDR
A substantial undercount of EC mortality in the Iranian population is suggested, and policy makers who determine research and treatment priorities based on reported death rates should notice of this underreported data.
The Clinical Characteristics and Outcomes of Barrett's Cancer at a Single Institution in Korea.
TLDR
As the incidence of Barrett's cancer is increasing, a standard surveillance program that includes the endoscopic biopsy method, the grading system for the dysplasia and the treatment modality should be established.
Cost-Effectiveness Analysis on Endoscopic Surveillance Among Western Patients With Barrett's Esophagus for Esophageal Adenocarcinoma Screening
TLDR
The impact of surveillance endoscopy for BE on population's survival upon EAC by a whole-population cost-effectiveness analysis among modeled Western population was estimated and attempts to increase the proportion of AS participants can induce decline in population mortality of EAC, despite extra but acceptable expenditure.
Development and Validation of a Model to Determine Risk of Progression of Barrett's Esophagus to Neoplasia.
TLDR
A scoring system based on male sex, smoking, length of BE, and baseline low-grade dysplasia that identified patients with BE at low, intermediate, and high risk for HGD or EAC is developed.
Predicting regression of Barrett’s esophagus: results from a retrospective cohort of 1342 patients
TLDR
Several factors that can be used to predict patients who will regress from BE and those who likely will not, tools that will be useful in tailoring therapeutic and surveillance strategies are reported.
Cost-Effectiveness Analysis on Endoscopic Surveillance Among Western Patients With Barrett's Esophagus for Esophageal Adenocarcinoma Screening
TLDR
Attempt to increase the proportion of AS participants can induce decline in population mortality of EAC, despite extra but acceptable expenditure, however, regarding optimal cost-effectiveness, further studies are still required to identify a high-risk subpopulation out of BE patients for endoscopic surveillance.
The Incidence Rate of Esophageal Cancer in Saudi Arabia: An Observational and a Descriptive Epidemiological Analyses
TLDR
Maximum substantial changes of ASIRs for esophageal cancer in men and women from 2006 to 2016 were found in the Tabuk region, while Jazan and Northern regions exhibited least substantial changes.

Determinants of survival following the diagnosis of esophageal adenocarcinoma (United States)
TLDR
The opportunity for reduction in esophageal cancer mortality has been largely unrealized in the US and efforts should be devoted to identifying those at highest risk of developing Barrett's metaplasia and subsequent adenocarcinoma, and to developing cost-effective primary prevention and cancer surveillance methods targetting them.
Improved survival in both histologic types of oesophageal cancer in Sweden
TLDR
The survival rates for both oesophageal adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma have increased significantly during the 1990s compared to those in the previous 3 decades (p < 0.001).
Changing patterns in the incidence of esophageal and gastric carcinoma in the United States
TLDR
The authors update the incidence trends through 1994 and further consider the trends by age group.
Chemotherapy followed by surgery compared with surgery alone for localized esophageal cancer.
TLDR
Preoperative chemotherapy with a combination of cisplatin and fluorouracil did not improve overall survival among patients with epidermoid cancer or adenocarcinoma of the esophagus.
Association of prediagnosis endoscopy with stage and survival in adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and gastric cardia
TLDR
Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is used in screening and surveillance for Barrett esophagus and, possibly, the gastric cardia for adenocarcinoma of the esophageal reflux disease.
[Gastrointestinal cancer].
TLDR
Ten patients with refractory gastrointestinal cancer received nonmyeloablative allogeneic stem-cell transplantation from HLA-identical sibling with limited effects against gastrointestinal cancer, and the effects were limited for highly progressive disease.
Surgical treatment of esophageal cancer--the advent of the era of individualization.
TLDR
A large number of the patients diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the esophagus are women, and the prognosis is poor for the vast majority of the women diagnosed with the disease.
