Abstract

Gastric cancer is among the leading causes of cancer death worldwide. The mortality remains high because of a recurrence's significant number after complete surgical resection. Several postoperative therapies have been studied to decrease the risk for relapse and improve survival and there has been no standard of care yet. The primary objective of this study was to identify the relevant prognostic factors and to analyse the outcomes of adjuvant chemoradiotherapy.
