Growing evidence suggests improved outcomes can be reached when treating oligometastatic disease with radical intent. As a uniform definition and work-up of oligometastasis in esophago-gastric cancer is lacking, we have initiated the ‘OligoMetastasis in Esophago-gastric Cancer’ (OMEC)-project.
The aim of the OMEC-project is to develop a multidisciplinary European consensus statement on the definition, diagnostic criteria and treatment for oligometastatic esophago-gastric cancer.
The OMEC-project is endorsed by DUCG, ESSO, ESTRO, ESDE, ESMO, EORTC-GI, and the European Chapter of the IGCA.
In short, the OMEC-project will consist of 5 studies
