VIDEO: Novel prediction model accurately determines survival in gastric cancer
SAN FRANCISCO — Daniel V.T. Catenacci, MD, a GI medical oncologist at the University of Chicago, discusses a novel gastric cancer prognostic model — the Yonsei University Gastric Cancer Prediction Tool — for which validation data was presented during a session he co-chaired at the Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium.
This abstract introduced “a new nomogram for helping to determine patient risk of recurrence after surgery,” Catenacci said. “The nomogram adds to the current standard of determining risk [including] a number of … factors that we understand to be differential in prognosis.”
