Role of Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy in the Management of Gastric Adenocarcinoma.

Journal Article (Review)

Gastric adenocarcinoma is the fifth most common cancer worldwide and is often diagnosed at a late stage with nearly 50% of patients having locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic disease at the time of presentation.
