Therapeutic efficacy of hydrogen‑rich saline alone and in combination with PI3K inhibitor in non‑small cell lung cancer. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Jun 14;: Authors: Jiang Y, Liu G, Zhang L, Cheng S, Luo C, Liao Y, Guo S Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of combination therapy of LY294002, a specific inhibitor of phosphatidylinositol 3‑kinase (PI3K), with hydrogen‑rich saline on the proliferation and apoptosis of the non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) A549 cell line and the mechanisms underpinning this. Excessive production of reactive oxygen species (...

ConclusionMajor changes of PD-L1 expression in tumor cells were observed in 38% of NSCLC patients who received anticancer treatments. And, treatments with EGFR-TKI may increase PD-L1 expression in NSCLC patients harboringEGFR mutations.

AbstractBackgroundThe clinical efficacy observed with inhibitors of programed cell death 1/programed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1/PD-1) in cancer therapy has prompted studies to characterize the immune response in several tumor types, including lung cancer. However, the immunological profile of non –small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NCT) is not yet fully characterized, and it may be therapeutically important. The aim of this retrospective study was to characterize and quantify PD-L1/PD-1 expression and tumor-associated immune cells (TAICs) in surgically resected NSCLCs from patien...

Publication date: September 2018 Source:Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, Volume 105 Author(s): Zizheng Song, Yan Shi, Quanli Han, Guanghai Dai Special targeted therapy like endothelial growth factor receptor (EGFR) targeted therapy is available for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Biodegradable core-shell lipid-polymer hybrid nanoparticles (LPNs) can combine the beneficial properties of lipid and polymeric NPs for controlled drug delivery. In the present study, epidermal growth factor (EGF) conjugated LPNs were fabricated to co-deliver docetaxel (DTX) and resveratrol (RSV). In vitro and in v...

This report describes a case in which evaluation of tumor sequencing results by a molecular tumor board (MTB) led to rediagnosis of a non-small cell lung cancer as highly aggressive NUT midline carcinoma, with implications for targeted therapy using an investigational bromodomain and extraterminal (BET) inhibitor. We discuss the molecular biology and diagnosis of this rare tumor, and suggest how improved annotation of tumor sequencing reports and multidisciplinary expertise of MTBs can facilitate timely diagnosis of rare tumors and application of potential targeted therapies.

CONCLUSION: NDRG1 is an important modulator linking DNA damage response and hypoxia-related cellular stress response during the development of drug resistance to cisplatin/CMNa in lung cancer. Targeting both NDRG1 and ERCC1 may be a viable strategy for overcoming drug resistance in cancer therapy, and has significant clinical implications. PMID: 29768183 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
