    ABSTRACT: Cervical regional nodal involvement, as the first manifestation of prostatic cancer, has been rarely reported. Prostate cancer metastasis to the supraclavicular lymph nodes with negative immunohistochemical stain of PSA is even rarer. We report a case of prostate cancer with negative immunohistochemical stain of prostate-specific antigen presenting with left supraclavicular node enlargement. A 63-year-old man was referred to our hospital for a left supraclavicular mass. He had a family history of gastric cancer (two brothers had died of gastric cancer). Enhanced computed tomography of the abdomen revealed retroperitoneal lymph node enlargement. Gastroscopy revealed no evidence of any gastric tumor. Biopsy of the left-sided supraclavicular lymph nodes revealed metastatic adenocarcinoma with a negative prostate-specific antigen (PSA) stain. The serum tumor markers were examined, revealing PSA levels of 21.820 ng/ml. Biopsy of the prostate disclosed poorly-to-moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma (Gleason 4 + 4 = 8). Although rare, prostate cancer should be considered in the differential diagnoses of elderly men with undetermined original adenocarcinoma, metastatic to the supraclavicular lymph nodes. Rectal examination, serum PSA and pelvic image can be helpful to lead the diagnosis. PSA stain may be weak or negative in some poorly differentiated patients, however, it is still a sensitive and specific marker of prostatic differentiation and must be routinely applied.

    ABSTRACT: Background/Aims: To evaluate the efficacy and safety profile of S-1 combined with oxaliplatin (SOX) against unresectable advanced or metastatic gastric cancer. Methodology: Oxaliplatin was administered intravenously at 100mg/m2 for two hours on day 1 and S-1 was administered b.i.d. at 80mg/m2/day on days 1-14 followed by a 7-day rest during the 3-week schedule. Results: All 51 patients were assessed for efficacy and adverse events. The response and disease control rates were 41% and 90%, respectively. The response rate was significantly improved in patients with ECOG performance status of no more than 1, elevated CEA levels or unresected primary cancers. The median follow-up time was 11.8 months, the median time to progression was 6.8 months, the median overall survival was 11.8 months and the 1-year survival rate was 47.4%. Patients with diffused type exhibited significantly decreased time to progression and overall survival. The grade 3/4 adverse events were hematological toxicities, including neutropenia (13.7%), thrombocytopenia (13.7%) and anemia (11.8%). The incidence of grade 3/4 non-hematological events was low (≤2%). Conclusions: The SOX regimen (oxaliplatin, 100mg/m2 d1; S-1, 80mg/m2/day, b.i.d. d1-14, q3w) provided a favorable efficacy and safety profile in Chinese patients with advanced gastric cancer.
