CONCLUSIONS: For peripheral lung cancer, the measurement on CT and routine MRI sequences can potentially replace each other after comprehensive consideration of examination purposes, but for central lung cancer, alternative use of CT and MRI in evaluating treatment responses for lung cancer should needs extra attention. The diameter measurement of lung cancer on DWI is consistent with that on T1WI and T2WI, suggesting that DWI can provide functional and morphological information.

CONCLUSIONS: We established a prognostic model for lung adenocarcinoma, and further concluded that SMARCA4, GNAS and TSC2 were a gene signature which plays a prognostic role. PMID: 32083571 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Frozen lung cancer plasma samples stored in the biobank for 1-6 years at -80°C under certain conditions still retain a high level of cfDNA, which is suitable for NGS detection. PMID: 32083487 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThe population PK of PF-06439535 and bevacizumab-EU were well characterized by a two-compartment model. Covariate analysis did not reveal any appreciable differences between PK parameters for PF-06439535 and bevacizumab-EU in patients with NSCLC.Clinical trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov, NCT02364999.

We describe the supportive medications used by treatment-na ïve lung cancer patients and assess their association with PROs from MD Anderson Symptom Inventory (MDASI).MethodsTreatment-na ïve lung cancer patients who completed PROs from MDASI at the initial visit to MD Anderson Cancer Center were included. Medications from the initial visit were abstracted from the electronic medical records system and categorized into therapeutic classes based on U.S. Pharmacopeia v7.0. A chi-squar e or Mann-WhitneyU test was conducted as appropriate.ResultsAmong 459 patients, ~  50% took any analgesics and 25% were on opi...

ConclusionsSurvival from lung cancer by stage in the Basque Country has lengthened significantly across all disease stages. Nonetheless, since we estimated that lung cancer patients still have significantly lower mean survival times than the general population, there is a need for more research to improve these outcomes.
