CONCLUSIONS: To date, data on OS, quality of life, PFS, response rate, or short- and long-term AEs are available from small uncontrolled trials only. The three trials included heavily pretreated participants, which had previously undergone regimens of BV or ASCT. For these participants, median OS was not reached after follow-up times of at least 16 months (more than 50% of participants with a limited life expectancy were alive at this timepoint). Only one cohort out of three only reported quality of life, with limited follow-up data so that meaningful conclusions were not possible. Serious adverse events occurred rarely. C...

Publication date: May 2018Source: Journal of Applied Biomedicine, Volume 16, Issue 2Author(s): Reema Shyamsunder Shukla, Yogender AggarwalAbstractLung cancer is uncontrolled growth of cells that occurs due to exposure to smoke, radiation and chemicals, which causes chronic stress and associated with impaired autonomic nervous system. Nonlinear heart rate variability (HRV) analysis has been suggested to uncover the performance status of lung cancer subjects and distinguish them from healthy controls. The present work obtained tachogram from recorded electrocardiogram of 104 lung cancer subjects and 30 healthy controls to ex...

ConclusionsLTX and liver resections due to CD/CS are rare and associated with an acceptable post-operative morbidity and low mortality. Surgical treatment should be performed as early as possible to avoid recurrent episodes of cholangitis or carcinogenesis.

Bremner, Nitika Thawani, Rajat Walia, Tanmay S. PanchabhaiAbstractPatients under consideration for lung transplantation as treatment for end-stage lung diseases such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) often have risk factors such as a history of smoking or concomitant emphysema, both of which can predispose the patient to lung cancer. In fact, IPF itself increases the risk of lung cancer development by 6.8% to 20%. Solid org...

For mesothelioma patients, immunotherapy is mostly available through clinical trials at this time. Immunotherapy is a relatively new way to treat cancer, and doctors still are learning who will respond best to these novel therapies. Newly released medical research has found men seem to respond better to immunotherapy than women. But this doesn’t mean immunotherapy is off the table for women with mesothelioma. You should learn all you can about how immunotherapy works, why it may or may not be right for you and how you can best prepare yourself if you decide an immunotherapy clinical trial is right for you. Thorough ...
