Abstract:   (3053 Views)
To determine the effectiveness of chemotherapy in the treatment of gastric cancer, a sample of 54 patients suffering from advanced adenocarcinomas were studied. The results of the study showed that the disease is more prevalent in the age group of56-60 years. The three major signs of this kind of cancer were almost equally present among both sexes in our patients. After chemotherapy, 74% of the patients survived up to one year and 50% survived up to two years or more following treatment. Chemotherapy increased the survival rate of the patients but our results were less successful compared to that of other institutions. This probably is due to delayed referral of patients to the physician. It is suggested that those patients in age groups 56-60 showing the slightest signs of gastric cancer be examined by a physician and it is hoped that early detection of the disease will increase the survival rate of the patients.
