Neoadjuvant and Adjuvant Therapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.

Neoadjuvant and Adjuvant Therapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. Hematol Oncol Clin North Am. 2017 Feb;31(1):31-44 Authors: Chuang JC, Liang Y, Wakelee HA Abstract The use of 4 cycles of cisplatin-based adjuvant chemotherapy is now the standard of care for patients with resected stage II and IIIA non-small cell lung cancer. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy lacks the same level of data as adjuvant treatment, but meta-analyses of this approach support its use. Selection of patients who are most likely to benefit from chemotherapy remain elusive. Ongoing adjuvant trials are exploring biomarkers, molecularly targeted agents, postoperative radiation therapy, and immunotherapy. PMID: 27912832 [PubMed - in process]

Real-time PCR were performed to determine the expression of LINC00525 and miR-338-3p in NSCLC tissues and cell lines. Cell proliferation was detected by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) and colony-formation assays. Cell m...

Conclusions: The results reveal high discriminant power of chromosomes 8, 5, 1, 3, and 19 for identifying cancer with the highest sensitivity of 75% yielded by chromosome 5. Bottom 5 chromosomes 9, 6, 4, 13, and 21 show low discriminant power with accuracy of below 54% where true cancer and normal samples are grouped into substantially overlapping groups using copy numbers. This indicates the similarities of copy numbers obtained for cancer and normal samples on these chromosomes. PMID: 31977287 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Michael McFadden, Elizabeth A. DavidAbstractBackgroundSocioeconomic status (SES) disparities in the surgical management of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are well-described. Disparities in the receipt of adjuvant chemotherapy are poorly understood. We assessed the influence of SES on adjuvant chemotherapy following resection in patients with pN1 NSCLC.MethodsThe National Cancer Database was queried for cN0/N1 NSCLC pati...

Anatomical segmentectomy via both robotic thoracic surgery and video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) are minimally invasive surgical approaches for treatment of early-stage none-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, few research studies compared early outcomes.

LINC ‐PINT was greatly reduced whereas miR‐543 was up‐regulated in lung cancer. LINC‐PINT affected proliferation, metastasis and invasion in lung cancer via regulating miR‐543 and inducing PTEN. AbstractLong intergenic nonprotein coding RNA p53 ‐induced transcript (LINC‐PINT) has been reported to participate in various cancers. Here, we investigated the effects of LINC‐PINT on lung cancer progression. Firstly, in our study, we implied that LINC‐PINT was obviously decreased in NSCLC. Thereafter, in A549 and H1299 cells, LINC‐PINT was upregulated via transfecting LV‐LINC‐PINT. As exhibited, LINC‐PIN...

Although the use of Nivolumab prolongs survival in a number of patients, this treatment is hampered b...

Authors: Guo S, Li M, Li J, Lv Y Abstract Effect of targeted regulation of mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 3 (Smad3) by microRNA-15a (miR-15a) on the proliferation, invasion and metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells and its related mechanisms were investigated. Fifty pairs of NSCLC and para-cancerous tissues were collected to identify the expression level of miR-15a in NSCLC, para-cancerous tissue, and cell lines A549, H1299, H1975 and BEAS-2B by real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR (RT-PCR); A549 cells were transfected with miR-15a mimic; the MTT assay was performed to detect the role o...
