Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the fifth leading cause of cancer death and the fifth most commonly diagnosed cancer in China. Approximately, 25% of CRC was in the advanced stage as diagnosed, and 40% of patients with CRC progress to metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). RAS mutation status is now routinely used to select their therapy. But it is still a question whether RAS mutation status is a prognostic marker. In our study, we detected RAS mutation, immunoscore (IS), and PD-L1 expression in 60 Chinese mCRC patients who received palliative operation. The Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed that the overall...

Abstract Objective: To investigate the clinicopathological characteristics and risk factors in patients with lung cancer and COPD. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical data of 282 patients with lung cancer, including 174 and 108 patients with and without COPD, respectively. Information on age, sex, smoking status, and histologic type was obtained from medical records. Results: Lung cancer patients with COPD and those with the chronic bronchitis (CB) phenotype had higher smoking indices compared to those without COPD (723.95 ± 631.48 and 920.95 ± 712.93 versus 418....

To assess the efficacy of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for each indication, one must critically assess each specific clinical outcome to identify outcomes that benefit from SCS therapy. To date, a comprehensive review of clinically relevant outcome-specific evidence regarding SCS has not been published. We aimed to assess all randomized controlled trials from the world literature for the purpose of evaluating the clinical outcome-specific efficacy of SCS for the following outcomes: perceived pain relief or change pain score, quality of life, functional status, psychological impact, analgesic medication utilization, patien...

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center is working on a plan to relocate a specialty care unit to better accommodate acute patients. The hospital has filed plans with the state to move its 14-bed Intermediate Medical Care Unit (IMCU) up to the eighth floor, adjacent to its intensive care unit. Roswell expects the total cost for the project to be $5.8 million. Patients generally go to the IMCU after surgery when they need close monitoring, but not at the higher level found in an ICU.  Moving…
