Adenocarcinomas that start at the area where the esophagus joins the stomach (the GE junction, which includes about the first 2 inches (5 cm) of the stomach), tend to behave like cancers in the esophagus and are treated like them, as well.
At Adaptimmune, we are working diligently to find immunotherapeutic solutions for certain cancers. Links to cancers we are working on can be found on this page. For more robust information, including descriptions, signs and symptoms, key statistics and prevalence, survival rates, diagnosis, currently available treatments, and help with finding treatment centers can be found on the American Cancer Society’s website at: http://www.cancer.org/cancer/index
Be sure to speak with your doctor about your cancer and what options are available to you and your family.
