CONCLUSION: The proportion of primary bronchopulmonary cancers diagnosed among non-smokers is increasing in Dakar. An analytical study of suspected risk factors would be helpful for prevention. PMID: 30413327 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Molnar TF Abstract Knowledge on ontogenesis of thoracic surgery is essential not only for understanding present concepts and debates on surgery for tuberculosis, but it also contributes to the further developments in operative treatment of lung cancer. Both diseases have been the leading cause of death in their respective ages. History of tuberculosis follows the classic algorithm: diagnostic, casuistic and therapeutical stages. Villemin followed by Virchow, and, finally, Koch revealed the pathoanatomy and the cause of tuberculosis. The therapeutic phase of lung cancer has been reached without identified c...

As a pharmacist, Kathy James considers herself well educated about the importance of getting regular cancer screenings. Even though the 55-year-old had no history of cancer in her family, she never skipped her regular mammograms, and she gave herself regular breast exams. So she was dumbfounded when, during one of those self-exams in May 2017, she felt a marble-size lump in her left breast. A visit to the doctor confirmed it. “The radiologist came in with his hands in his pockets and looked down and said, ‘It doesn’t look good,'” James says. After a biopsy, James and her husband learned she had meta...

Authors: Mur LA, Huws SA, Cameron SJ, Lewis PD, Lewis KE Abstract The lung microbiome has been shown to reflect a range of pulmonary diseases-for example: asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis. Studies have now begun to show microbiological changes in the lung that correlate with lung cancer (LC) which could provide new insights into lung carcinogenesis and new biomarkers for disease screening. Clinical studies have suggested that infections with tuberculosis or pneumonia increased the risk of LC possibly through inflammatory or immunological changes. These have now been supersede...

We report 45 common human miRNAs deregulated in both pulmonary tuberculosis and lung cancer. We show that sRNA_1096 and sRNA_1414 from M. tuberculosis have sequence homology with human mir-21. Hence, the potential role of these three small non-coding RNAs in rifampicin resistance in pulmonary tuberculosis is implied. Further, the linking of sRNA_1096 and sRNA_1414 from M. tuberculosis with the host lung tumorigenesis is inferred. Nonetheless, further analysis and validation is required to associate these three non-coding RNAs with Mycobacterium associated increased risk of lung cancer. PMID: 30237679 [PubMed]

Authors: Kang MJ, Kim JH, Kim YK, Lee HJ, Shin KM, Kim JI, Lee HJ, Do KH, Yong HS, Choi SJ, Choi M, Jung JI Abstract In 2014, the American College of Radiology (ACR) announced the guideline for the appropriate diagnostic approach and treatment of patients according to the severity of hemoptysis and risk for lung cancer. However, the application of the ACR guideline in Korea may not be appropriate, because many patients in Korea have active tuberculosis or pulmonary fibrosis due to previous tuberculosis. The Korean Society of Radiology and Korean Society of Thoracic Radiology have proposed a new guideline suitable f...

Conclusion: From this first Indian series, it is clear that VATS lobectomy is feasible in both benign and malignant cases. It also shows that the fear of adhesions is unwarranted and properly selected benign cases can also undergo VATS lobectomy safely.

CONCLUSIONS: High mortality was observed among patients with TB aged ≥80 years. Increased vigilance is warranted to avoid delayed diagnosis and reduce the transmission risk, especially among elderly patients with co-morbidities living in old age homes.
