Endoscopic submucosal dissection of early gastric cancer
Gastrointestinal cancer (GI cancer) is a term that refers to malignant tumors that start in the digestive system. Cancers of the esophagus, thyroid, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, small and large intestines, and anus are all included in GI cancer. 1 There is evidence to indicate that baseline HRQoL in colorectal,2-5 oesophageal,6 hepatocellular 7, and pancreatic 8 cancer predicts survival, as it does in many other cancers. HRQoL has been found to be a better indicator of prognosis than clinician-rated success status in the case of colorectal cancer. 2 and 3 At both the 2 year 9 and 10 year 10 follow-ups, psychotherapeutic help has been linked to improved survival rates for GI cancer patients.
Undernutrition and weight loss are common among GI cancer forms, owing to either local problems (e.g., dysphagia due to oesophageal obstruction) or other primary symptoms such as loss of appetite, taste abnormalities, early satiety, and exhaustion, which are collectively known as ‘cachexia.’ Undernutrition and cachexia have also been linked to a lower HRQoL and a worse prognosis. 11

Colorectal cancer: should dpd deficiency be searched
This section is dedicated to the study of tumorigenesis, prevention, early detection, and treatment of gastrointestinal tract neoplasias, with an emphasis on multidisciplinary studies to promote clinical applications of biological advances.
The Gastrointestinal Cancers segment aims to include a broad and systematic approach to tumorigenesis, prevention, early detection, and treatment of gastrointestinal tract neoplasia. Despite technical advances in endoscopy and imaging of GI Tract tumors, and their personalized therapies, knowledge of the molecular machinery causing and maintaining GI tract carcinogenesis, as well as the morphogenetic pathways leading to cancer, has only been partially translated to single patient care and population-based approaches.
The section’s ultimate goal is to promote multidisciplinary studies in order to accelerate the clinical application of biological advances. As a result, contributions on the following topics are particularly welcome in Gastrointestinal Cancers:
