Five-year survival of Advanced Esophagogastric junction cancer with achieved by complete response preoperative S-1 + CDDP combination therapy and surgical resection

No clear consensus has been reached about the appropriate chemotherapy and/or surgery for esophagogastric junction cancer (EGJ) cancer, and no recommendations have been established. However, it is hoped that treatment of advanced gastric cancer with preoperative chemotherapy will be useful, in that it will result in down staging, increased resection rate due to tumor contraction, and avoidance of the need for multi-organ resection, and that it will thus contribute to improved prognosis. Numerous clinical studies have been carried out to date on treatment of advanced gastric cancer with multi-drug combination chemotherapy, with S-1, a pyrimidine-fluoride-based anti-tumor agent, as the principal component, and favorable results have been achieved. The present report is about a 66-year-old male who was diagnosed as having Siewert type II, stage IIIB EGJ cancer, and whose bulky tumor was treated with S-1 + CDDP (SP) preoperative chemotherapy and total gastrectomy, with the aim of achieving preoperative tumor contraction. The outcome was achievement of histological complete response, and the patient has now survived for 5 years since surgery.
