Disease relevance of Esophageal Diseases


High impact information on Esophageal Diseases


Chemical compound and disease context of Esophageal Diseases

  • Only three of the 15 patients responding to foscarnet therapy had a relapse of their esophageal disease [2].
  • Several factors were shown to be associated with an increased mortality, including delayed treatment, presence of severe underlying esophageal disease, total parenteral nutrition catheter infection, the necessity for major extirpative procedures to treat the perforation, and the use of exclusion and diversion in the continuity procedure [11].

Anatomical context of Esophageal Diseases

  • The AIC of the TNM grading of the International Union Against Cancer, the grading of the Japanese Society for Esophageal Diseases, and the grading designed according to the total number of positive lymph nodes became substantially smaller in that order [12].

Gene context of Esophageal Diseases

  • S-MK in patients with SESCC (388+/-411 pg/ml) was significantly higher than in benign esophageal disease or healthy controls (183+/-73 and 154+/-76 pg/ml, respectively) [13].
  • F-18 FDG uptake in benign esophageal disease [14].
  • The median CD4 lymphocyte count at the time of diagnosis of esophageal disease was 12.2 cells/mm3 (range, 3 to 35 cells/mm3) [15].
