Top Line: Can adaptive neoadjuvant therapy improve response for locally advanced esophageal cancer?

The Study: CALGB 80803 was a randomized, phase 2 study that sought to determine if an interim PET/CT could be used to modify the chemo used with neoadjuvant radiation in order to increase the pCR rate among patients who didn’t respond well to induction chemo. Patients had resectable T2+ or N+ esophageal or EG junction adenocarcinoma. They had initial PET, and the tumor had to have a maximum SUV of 5 or higher. They were randomized to induction FOLFOX6 or carbo/paclitaxel (CP) followed by an interim PET/CT. PET response was defined as ≥ 35% decrease in SUVmax, and those patients stayed with the same chemo during radiation. Nonresponders crossed over to the alternate chemo during radiation, which was 50.4 Gy in 28 fractions in both arms. Among 225 patients who had interim PET, there was no statistical difference in the SUV response rate between induction FOLFOX6 (65%) and CP (56%). The primary goal of the trial was to determine the pCR rate in PET nonresponders, which was 18-20% in both the FOLFOX6→ CP crossovers and the CP→ FOLFOX6 crossovers. This compares favorably to the expected 5% pCR rate for PET nonresponders with standard therapy. Surprisingly, the biggest difference in pCR rate was seen between FOLFOX6 PET-responders (40%) and CP PET-responders (14%).

TBL: In patients with esophageal adenocarcinoma who don’t PET-respond to induction chemo, a change in chemo regimen may improve their pathologic response rate to that seen in PET-responders. | Goodman, J Clin Oncol 2021


  1. Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: or you can contact him through his website fb page Https://
