The U.S. Food &Drug Administration on Thursday approved Tumor Treating Fields, a therapy involving electric currents that disrupt cancer cell division and inhibit tumor growth, for the first-line treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma. It is the first treatment in more than 15 years that the FDA approves for mesothelioma. In 2004, the agency added the chemotherapy drug pemetrexed (Alimta) to standard-of-care treatment. The FDA approved Novocure’s NovoTTF-100L System under the agency’s Humanitarian Device Exemption. The approval comes eight months after Novocure, which manufactures and markets the devi...

CONCLUSIONS: We have proved that the expression of miRNA-27a-3p, miRNA-31, miRNA-182, and miRNA-195 in patients with LC is different from the expression of these molecules in healthy people. The examination of these microRNAs in plasma could be used in non-invasive lung cancer diagnosis. PMID: 31115013 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings provide clues regarding the role of HJURP as a tumor promoter in NSCLC via the activation of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway, indicating HJURP may be a promising therapeutic target for NSCLC. PMID: 31115012 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: COX-2 might promote cisplatin resistance in NSCLC by promoting EMT through the AKT signaling pathway activation. PMID: 31115011 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrated that linc00261 was lowly expressed in NSCLC tissues and cells. It inhibited cell proliferation and metastasis by downregulating Snail expression via EMT. This might provide a novel sight for the biological treatment for NSCLC. PMID: 31115010 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Matsuo K, Ishiguro T, Najama T, Shimizu Y, Kobayashi Y, Mutou M Abstract A 62-year-old man presented to our hospital for the further evaluation and treatment of his back pain, general fatigue, and dyspnea, which had developed 4 days after the 29th administration of nivolumab to treat his lung cancer. Based on his clinical history, elevated serum cardiac enzyme values, and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging and myocardial biopsy findings, he was diagnosed with myocarditis induced by nivolumab. Corticosteroid therapy improved his condition, and CMR performed on hospital day 11 also showed remarkable im...

ConclusionPatients with stage III NSCLC and a large MTV in whom definitive RCT had a particularly good survival in the ESPATUE trial. Treatment individualization according to MTV is not supported by this study. The ESPATUE and ACRIN trials differed by the use of cisplatin-containing induction chemotherapy and an intensified radiotherapy regimen that were particularly effective in patients with large MTV disease.

Ruíz de ArcauteAbstractOvine pulmonary adenocarcinoma (OPA) is a contagious lung cancer of sheep caused by jaagsiekte sheep retrovirus (JSRV), which induces the transformation of secretory epithelial cells of the distal respiratory tract. The disease has been recorded in the major sheep rearing areas with the exceptions of Australia and New Zealand, and is clinically characterized by a chronic respiratory process that often involves the production of pulmonary...
