Identification of biomarkers predictive of response to neoadjuvant treatment in cardia cancer

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Identification, in patients with locally advanced adenocarcinoma of the cardia, of biomarkers predictive of response to neoadjuvant therapy, which allow to distinguish at the time of diagnosis potentially "responder" patients, who will benefit from preoperative CRT, and "non-responders", who should undergo upfront surgery.

Biopsies will be taken pre-CRT and the profile of gene expression will be analyzed by immunohistochemistry, RT-PCR and analysis of microarrays. The correlation between the expression profile of the studied molecules and pathological and survival data, prospectively collected, will be carried out using appropriate statistical tests.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
