Lung cancer in the eastern part of libya
Conclusions: We found that recent recurrence, oligo-recurrence, and DLT were associated with an improved median PR-PFS time and long-term PR-PFS rate in patients with postoperative recurrence after complete resection of NSCLC. On the basis of these results, we believe that DLT should be considered first for patients with oligo-recurrence before applying noncurative treatment.
This article provides an overview of the current state of knowledge of the clinical experience using radiation therapy in combination with immune therapy and discusses the rationale for integrating these 2 modalities in the treatment of advanced non–small cell lung cancer. Available data supports the use of radiation therapy in combination with immunotherapy to achieve improved local and systemic tumor control. Evidence from the early clinical trials has shown that using radiation therapy and immune checkpoint blockade therapies together produces a greater clinical effect than using either modality alone. To maximize...

METHODS: This was a prospective, observational, single-center study including 59 patients with mild COPD who underwent lobectomy for lung cancer. All patients a...

Authors: Lee H, Lee HS, Moon DH, Lee S Abstract Cerebral air embolism combined with cardiomyopathy secondary to pulmonary barotrauma is rare. Here, we report an unusual case of cerebral air embolism combined with transient cardiomyopathy secondary to large bulla rupture during a pulmonary function test after lung cancer surgery. The patient experienced loss of consciousness. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging suggested a cerebral air embolism. Electrocardiography showed ST-segment elevation and abnormally high plasma levels of cardiac enzymes. Echocardiography and coronary angiography suggested card...
Conclusion: These results showed that CD133 expression can be regulated by methylation. Thus, the demethylation of the CD133 promoter may compromise the treatment of lung cancer by inactivating cancer stem cells and/or activating CGAs. PMID: 32090054 [PubMed]
