Studies on the effects of post-operative chemotherapy on patients with stomach cancer and sentinel symptoms.
Gastric cancer is a prevalent malignancy worldwide, and post-operative chemotherapy is a common therapeutic approach to improve patient outcomes. However, the efficacy and tolerability of postoperative chemotherapy can vary significantly among patients. This research aims to investigate the concept of "sentinel symptoms" and identify the factors that influence how post-operative chemotherapy affects patients with gastric cancer. The concept of "sentinel symptoms" refers to a set of early signs or indications that may predict the response and tolerability of chemotherapy in patients with gastric cancer. These symptoms can include specific clinical manifestations, laboratory findings, or patient-reported outcomes. Recognizing and monitoring sentinel symptoms can enable healthcare professionals to anticipate treatment response and potentially tailor chemotherapy regimens accordinglyAuthor(s): Marielle Dent
