Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is increasingly being used to downstage locally advanced oesophago-gastric cancer. Predicting response to treatment is important in order to target surgery to those individuals who would derive the maximum benefit. The aim of this study was to assess whether radiological or symptomatic parameters could aid surgical decision making. It was found that both biological and radiological responses to neoadjuvant ECF chemotherapy should play an important role in surgical decision making. These parameters should be carefully measured and assessed in future prospective trials.
