Esophageal cancer is the seventh most common cancer globally, accounting for more than
half a million of deaths per year. The two most common histologies are adenocarcinoma and
squamous cell carcinoma. Neoadjuvant chemoradiatation therapy followed by surgical
resection has become the mainstay treatment for resectable esophageal cancer. With the
advent of immunotherapy, human monoclonal anti-programmed death (PD-1) antibody has
proven to play a critical role for those who had residual disease following resection.
