Abstract

The prognosis of patients with scirrhous gastric cancer (SGC) is extremely poor. However, recent advances in therapeutic strategies against SGC, using effective anticancer drugs, have prolonged the survival of patients with SGC. This paper reviews the recent therapeutic outcomes of this type of gastric cancer and introduces a new treatment protocol for SGC.
