Nurse practitioners play a central role in helping patients with esophageal cancer understand and manage their disease and treatment complications.

A novel calculator can more easily identify which esophageal adenocarcinoma patients derive an overall survival benefit from neoadjuvant chemoradiation to help guide treatment choices.

Overweight individuals in early adulthood who gained additional weight to become obese later in life are at an increased risk for esophageal and gastric cardia adenocarcinomas.

Ahead of the 2017 ASCO Gastrointestinal Cancer Symposium in San Francisco, we spoke with Dr. Geoffrey Ku on the advances in systemic therapy for esophageal and gastric cancer.

Results of a new Swedish study have shown that a surgeon needed to perform at least 15 esophagectomies in cancer patients in order to achieve stable survival results in the first months after the operation.

The addition of lapatinib to capecitabine/oxaliplatin did not prolong overall survival among patients with previously untreated HER2-amplified gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma.
