Episode Info:

Welcome back to the SO Files! We're happy to present part 2 of our gastric cancer series. Here we briefly review the historical gastric cancer classifications (Lauren and WHO) and then explain how this has drastically changed over the past 5-10 years with the advent of next-generation sequencing capabilities. We go in depth to evaluate how this applies to the budding surgical oncologist, and what discoveries may lie on the horizon. We also welcome back Dr. Ryan Fields, MD, FACS who is an Associate Professor in the Department of Surgery at Washington University in St. Louis and was recently appointed co-leader of the Solid Tumor Therapeutics Program (STTP) at Siteman Cancer Center.  Dr. Fields talks about the outcomes of several recent trials and how they are helping us to treat gastric cancer patients in the clinic today. As always, all references from the podcast are linked below, enjoy!
