Using genomic and expression data from advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients enrolled in the BATTLE-2 clinical trial, ...

Shanmugavadivu, Bharath Kumar VelmuruganAbstractAntrodia camphorata is an expensive mushroom that grows on the inner cavity of an endangered native tree of Taiwan namely Cinnamomum kanehirai Hayata. It is used as a traditional medicine in Taiwan and has several health benefits including free radical scavenging, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, hepatoprotective, neuroprotective, antidiabetic, and free radical-induced DNA damage protecting activities. Antroquinonol is a tetrahydro ubiquinone derivative found predominately ...

ConclusionsAdrenalectomy in cases of isolated lung carcinoma metastasis can offer increased overall survival. Age and the degree of differentiation of the primary lung carcinoma are the factors that most influence poorer survival.ResumenIntroducciónEl objetivo de este estudio es describir la experiencia en nuestro centro sobre pacientes con carcinoma de pulmón y metástasis adrenal tratados de manera secuencial, resección pulmonar y adrenalectomía, en los últimos 15 años.Pacientes y métodoAnalizamos una serie retrospectiva de 19 pacientes a los que se les realizó...

In conclusion, monitoring of T-lymphocyte subsets and IL-6 levels in patients is enhanced during radiotherapy. Clinically effective programs of radiotherapy for lung cancer improve the body's immune status. PMID: 30334418 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we systematically analysed immunoreactivity for IL-17A, IL-17E and IL-17F and their relevant receptors in the lung sections from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and normal control. Immunoreactivity for IL-17A, IL-17F, IL-17RA and IL- 17RC, but not IL-17RB was significantly elevated in NSCLC compared with controls, while IL-17E was reduced. The median numbers of infiltrating lymphocytes and neutrophils and global macrophage (CD68) immunoreactivity of phagocytes were also elevated in NSCLC compared with control tissue sections. Furthermore, correlation between the expression of IL-17A and its receptors IL-1...

Authors: Okimoto T, Tsubata Y, Hotta T, Hamaguchi M, Nakao M, Hamaguchi SI, Hamada A, Isobe T Abstract The central nervous system is a common site of relapse in patients receiving crizotinib, which is presumed to be associated with the low concentration of crizotinib in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Our patient received surgical treatment for anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive stage IIA lung adenocarcinoma. His cancer recurred with brain metastases and carcinomatous meningitis. We started whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) and subsequently administered crizotinib. The concentration of crizotinib on day 15 in th...

Lung cancer represents the most common cause of brain dissemination. Brain metastases are present at diagnosis in approximately 25% of patients with advanced non-small lung cancer (NSCLC) and may develop in a higher proportion during the course of the disease [1]. In two-thirds of lung cancer patients brain metastases are multiple, and in one third singular [2]. The incidence of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis in NSCLC ranges between 5 to 10% [3]. With better extracranial control resulting from the progress in systemic therapy, brain involvement is diagnosed more often.
