Abstract

Although sex differences in the incidence of esophageal cancer are well-established, the independent prognostic value of sex remains unclear. Recently, several groups have performed comprehensive molecular analyses of esophageal tumors, 1 providing the opportunity to elucidate the underlying genomic bases for epidemiologic observations. We therefore sought to evaluate the effect of sex on esophageal cancer prognosis and to compare genomic data from tumors in men versus women.
