Adjuvant imatinib mesylate after resection of localised, primary gastrointestinal stromal tumour: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial

Published date:
03/28/2009
Excerpt:
Eligible patients had complete gross resection of a primary gastrointestinal stromal tumour at least 3 cm in size and positive for the KIT protein by immunohistochemistry....Imatinib significantly improved recurrence-free survival compared with placebo (98% [95% CI 96–100] vs 83% [78–88] at 1 year; hazard ratio [HR] 0·35 [0·22–0·53]; one-sided p<0·0001).

Title:

[Preoperative Imatinib Therapy Followed by Laparoscopic Local Gastrectomy for a Giant Gastric Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor-A Case Report]

Excerpt:
A 55-year-old man complained of abdominal distention. Gastroscopy showed a submucosal tumor in the upper-third portion of the stomach, with a biopsy diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumor(GIST)…A pathological diagnosis was c-kit-positive GIST, with less than 5/50 HPF of mitotic counts. Imatinib was restarted 2 weeks after the operation. The patient is alive 8 months after the operation, with no obvious recurrence. Preoperative imatinib therapy can be a useful option for large GIST tumors.
