Adenocarcinoma has been treated with a variety of medications, as well as surgery to remove the lump. Chemotherapy is prescribed in patients that have a relapse or spread of the tumor. The cancer is also treated with a curative intent to control the tumor.
The commonest of the gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas are gastric adenocarcinomas. They are often more advanced than colon carcinomas at presentation and are more likely to present in the sigmoid colon. The metastatic pattern in these tumours is varied with the site of disease at presentation and the metastatic sites at which metastases are detected.
Adenocarcinoma is a disease that is not known to have anything to do with environmental risk factors. Thus, it can be found to be more likely to happen in people who do not have a specific risk for this type of cancer. These patients should be evaluated to discover whether they are high-risk factors for developing this type of cancer. In addition, those who have high-risk factors must continue their examinations and treatments to make sure they do not develop the cancer in the future. One can find that certain environmental factors can be found in the workplace. These environmental factors include air pollution, sunlight exposure, and cigarette smoking.
The American Cancer Society estimates 11,700 new cases of adenocarcinoma, 5,900 of which are in situ and 4,200 of which are invasive. The incidence of adenocarcinoma appears to be increasing in men more than in women.
Adenocarcinoma of the lung still is one of the most lethal cancers, with a five-year survival rate of only 18%. This is largely due to metastasis of early cancer and also due to late recurrences. Early detection may allow cure. A long disease-free interval with adjuvant therapy is also critical.
The signs of adenocarcinoma include weight loss, induration, and lymphadenopathy. The signs of adenocarcinoma in the upper gastrointestinal tract may include induration, perforation, ulceration, haemorrhage and weight loss.\n
The spread of adenocarcinoma at different loci seems to obey different laws of mechanical behavior. Mechanical behavior describes well-defined mechanical properties of cells. The ability of cancer cells to respond to stimuli is a property of a cell determined not only by the intrinsic ability of a cancer cell to mobilize chemical energy.
The current meta-analysis showed that it is safe and effective for cancer therapies (chemotherapy and radiotherapy) to use the recombinant protein eryaspase. The authors of this meta-analysis (Yingwei Zhang, Yuan Zhimeng Yu, Xinyueliang Wei, and Yongcheng Yang in "Frontiers in Oncology") believe that further rigorous, large-scale control studies (with a well-designed randomization and double-blind procedures in a correct power) are needed to prove further the effectiveness and safety of eryaspase in the treatment for cancer.
Data from a recent study show that a simple and effective gene-silencing strategy based on eryaspase expression may have therapeutic potential for human tumors that exhibit high levels of this protease. The finding that eryaspase-treated xenograft tumors can be eliminated suggests that a similar strategy may provide a means of targeted therapeutics and for evaluating novel approaches to the design of gene therapy vectors and drugs.
Recent medical advances have been limited in terms of treatment for invasive adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. Recent findings suggest that specific biomarkers may play roles in treating pancreatic adenocarcinoma. It is also important in continuing to look carefully at pancreatobrevascular anomalies as potential targets for the treatment of pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
There was a predominance of female cancers for adenocarcinoma as compared to adenomatous adenocarcinoma and the most common primary tumor for adenocarcinoma is adenoma that has evolved to become glandular carcinoma. The most efficient treatment of adenocarcinomas of the colon and rectum can be total colectomy with ileostomy.
Based on the results of this trial, it seems reasonable to recommend, at least until the final analysis of the clinical trial is completed, eryaspase as a potential agent for the treatment of EAC and possibly other carcinomas of the esophagus.
