This study assessed the survival impact of combined surgery to the primary tumor and metastatic disease in the management of metastatic NSCLC. Stage IV NSCLC patients at presentation, diagnosed from 2004 to 2013 were identified from the SEER (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results) database. Propensity-matched analysis was performed considering baseline characteristics (age, gender, race, histology, TN stage, and site of metastases). A total of 144,334 patients were identified. The median age group was 65-70 years, and 1139 patients (0.8% of the patients) have received surgical treatment to both the primary tumor...

Abstract Hypoxia plays a crucial role in cancer progression, and it has great significance for monitoring hypoxic level in biosystems. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) represent a small population of tumour cells that regard as the key to seed tumours. The survival of CSCs depend on the tumour microenvironment, which is distinct region has the hypoxic property. Therefore, the detection of the hypoxic CSC niche plays a pivotal role in the destructing the 'soil' of CSCs, and eliminating CSCs population. Numerous one-photon excited fluorescent probes have been developed to indicate the hypoxic status in tumours through the d...

In this report, a hydrophilic probe in mesoporous pore (denoted as Fe3O4@mSiO2@G6P) was designed and prepared. By taking advantage of the excellent hydrophilicity and size-exclusion ability, we applied Fe3O4@mSiO2@G6P to capture glycopeptides from both horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and immunoglobulin (IgG) digests successfully. Moreover, a total of 39 and 25 endogenous glycopeptides were identified from healthy saliva and gastric saliva, respectively, indicating the great potential of this probe for the exploration of glycopeptidome biomarkers.
