Radioguided lung lesion localization: introducing a fluoroscopy system in a SPECT/CT scan

Conclusion Radioguided pulmonary nodule localization is a reliable procedure with a high rate of success, minimal complications, and lower risk of failures, with no associated mortality or significant morbidity. Our SPECT/CT system is the first to benefit from the technological improvement with successfully implementation and application of fluoroscopy to SPECT/CT.

METHODS: The survival of patients with an EGFR wild-type NSCLC who received second- or third-line erlotinib treatment was assessed using real-life data that had been collected in a prospective, national, multicenter, non-interventional cohort study. RESULTS: Data from 274 p...

Authors: Rouviere D, Veillon R, Chaltiel L, Simonneau Y, Filleron T, Milia J, Guibert N, Melloni B, Raherisson C, Didier A, Mazieres J Abstract The central nervous system (CNS), through carcinomatous meningitis or solid brain metastases, is the most common site of recurrence in non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC) with activating mutations. Our retrospective study describes the population of patients with CNS metastases of NSCLC harboring activating mutation with targeted therapy (EGFR, ALK, BRAF, HER2) in 4 French regional reference hospitals. 60 patients were analyzed. The proposed treatments were heterogeneous an...

Authors: Ewig S, Larrosa-Lombardi S, Halboos A, Hecker E Abstract Surgical resection continues to be a mainstay of curative treatment of patients with non-small cell lung cancers stages I - III and some small cell lung cancers. Reported rates of complications and mortality vary considerably. Therefore, a thorough and comprehensive preoperative evaluation of lung cancer patients is crucial in order to select appropriate surgical candidates and to determine their individual risk, including the extent of resection possible. Following available data and guidelines, such evaluation should include: ECOG-scoring, card...

Conclusion: Trained dogs were able to identify non-small cell lung cancer samples from healthy controls. The findings of this study provide a starting point for a larger-scale research project designed to explore the use of canine scent detection as a tool for cancer biomarkers.

Md Arshad, Prabakaran PoopalanAbstractThe pragmatic outcome of a lung cancer diagnosis is closely interrelated in reducing the number of fatal death caused by the world's top cancerous disease. Regardless of the advancement made in understanding lung tumor, and its multimodal treatment, in general the percentage of survival remain low. Late diagnosis of a cancerous cell in patients is the major hurdle for the above circumstances. In the new era of a lung cancer diagnosis with lo...

In this study, we developed GRPs from the two NSCLC cell lines PC9 and HCC827, which express an EGFR exon 19 deletion mutation, by treatment with a high concentration of gefitinib. The GRPs from both PC9 and HCC827 cells expressed high levels of CD133 and FBXW7, but low levels of c-MYC. Cell cycle analysis demonstrated that the majority of GRPs existed in the G0/G1 phase. Knockdown of the FBXW7 gene significantly reduced the cell number of CD133-positive GRPs and reversed the cell population in the G0/G1-phase. We also found that FBXW7 expression in CD133-positive cells was increased and c-MYC expression was decreased in g...

hikala K. Suresh Babu Considering the importance of ultra-performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-quadrupole time of flight-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-ESI-QTOF-MS/MS) hyphenated techniques for analysis of secondary metabolites from crude extracts, the present study was aimed at identification of secondary metabolites in acetone extract of the lichen Usnea longissima. From our study, 19 compounds were tentatively identified through comparison of exact molecular masses from their MS/MS spectra, mass fragmentation studies and comparison with literature data. In addition, potent cytotoxic activity o...
