The cancer came back suddenly, it was all over her, carcinomatosis, they called it.
Two weeks after submucosal cancer cells injection in Group A, ulcerative gastric cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis showed typical VX2 tumor pathology, with widespread intraperitoneal metastatic nodules, bloody ascites and perspicuous pulmonary metastases.
The clinico-pathological features of this model resemble human peritoneal carcinomatosis.
This study was to establish a stable rabbit peritoneal carcinomatosis model of gastric cancer using VX2 tumor, and analyze the clinico-pathological features.
The clinico-pathological progression pattern was very similar to patients of advanced gastric cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis.
The success rates of peritoneal carcinomatosis formation were 100% (12/12), 91. 7% (11/12) and 58. 3% (7/12), respectively, for Groups A, B and C (P = 0.019, A versus C; P = 0.077, B versus C; P = 0.500, A versus B, Fisher's exact test).
First large animal model of peritoneal carcinomatosis from gastric cancer has been established by laparotomic orthotopic injection of VX2 cancer cells into the submucosal layer of the stomach, providing a more suitable model for surgical interventional studies.
Gastric cancer peritoneal carcinomatosis is a common clinical problem, but there are no suitable large animal models to study this problem.
A case of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis in a patient with known brain and lung metastases from renal cell cancer without previous systemic therapy is presented.
