Complete response of metastatic gastric cancer to chemoimmun
The following case has been reported in the Indian Journal of Medical Research.

A 64 yr old man presented with a complaint of abdominal pain. Computed tomography demonstrated multiple liver tumours. Advanced gastric cancer type 2 was diagnosed using gastrointestinal videoendoscopy. Triple therapy with S-1, paclitaxel and cisplatin in combination with lentinan, a representative mushroom β-glucan, was initiated. Re-evaluation after six cycles showed complete disappearance of the primary gastric lesion in April 2011 and only S-1 was continued in combination with lentinan.

Complete disappearance of liver metastases and primary gastric lesions was observed in April 2013. Chemoimmunotherapy was stopped due to grade 3 skin-related adverse effects. During the follow up period of 33 months no evidence of recurrence was seen.
