A new computer program can analyze images of patients' lung tumors, specify cancer types, and even identify altered genes driving abnormal cell growth, a new study shows. Led by researchers at NYU School of Medicine and published online in Nature Medicine, the study found that a type of artificial intelligence (AI), or "machine learning" program, could distinguish with 97 percent accuracy between

CONCLUSION: Different cancer types showed different concordances, and only gastric cancers were significantly less likely to be concordant. Incidence and pharmaceuticals may be the major cause of discordance. To be comprehensively and rapidly applied in China, WFO needs to accelerate localization. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03400514. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: IBM Watson for Oncology (WFO) has begun to be used in China. In this study, concordance was examined between the treatment recommendation proposed by WFO and clinical decisions for 362 patients in our cancer center, which could reflect the differences of ...

Conclusion: The severity of LC alters the sympathovagal balance through autonomic dysfunction. HRV analysis with an expert system was found useful for the early diagnosis of the disease, and thus, a noninvasive technique is of prognostic importance in classifying LC stages. The GUI designed for clinicians can help them to diagnose the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status scale of future patients.

(University of Central Florida) Engineers at the University of Central Florida Center for Research in Computer Vision have taught a computer how to detect tiny specks of lung cancer in CT scans, which radiologists often have a difficult time identifying. The artificial intelligence system is about 95 percent accurate, compared to 65 percent when done by human eyes, the team said.

Authors: Wang X, Cheng L, Xie HJ, Ju RJ, Xiao Y, Fu M, Liu JJ, Li XT Abstract Treatment effect of chemotherapy for aggressive non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is usually unsatisfactory for non-selective distributions of anticancer drugs, generation of vasculogenic mimicry (VM) channels, high metastasis and recurrence rate. Therefore, we developed a kind of dequalinium (DQA) modified paclitaxel plus honokiol micelles in this study to destroy VM channels and inhibit tumour metastasis. In vitro assays indicated that the targeting paclitaxel micelles with ideal physicochemical characteristics could exhibit not only t...
