Abstract

In recent years the evolution of treatment options for gastric cancer has resulted in diverging management paradigms based on apparent variations in epidemiology, biology and clinical practice in the context of a different demographic as well. Differences in the timing of systemic therapy, extent of surgery and inclusion of radiotherapy are key questions in management of locally advanced gastric cancer. In more advanced/metastatic disease, systemic therapy is the mainstay of treatment, with new agents raising challenges around patient selection and integration into local treatment practices.
