This study is one of the first to document volume changes of brain metastases from the time of diagnosis to SRS treatment. Our results indicate that brain metastases can grow rapidly and it is imperative that we streamline patient management processes to minimize delays in treating patients with SRS, since outcomes are dependent on tumor size.

young female, known to have a metastatic breast cancer, since 5 years. In 2017, she developed secondary lesions in the brain with positive CSF. She receives 30Gy/10 fr whole brain radiation, with intra-thecal chemotherapy. A month ago, she developed gait disturbances with blurred speech an hemifacial paresia. Brain MRI showed a solitary secondary lesion, 1.5 cm involving the left middle cerebral peduncle with extensive edema. No signs of meningeal disease. Pet CT : NED outside the brain...

ConclusionPatients withKRAS-mutant lung adenocarcinoma have a poorer outcome on pemetrexed-based first-line chemotherapy. WhetherKRAS-mutant NSCLCs should be excluded from pemetrexed-containing regimens should be assessed prospectively.

Authors: Strand LA, Martinsen JI, Borud EK Abstract INTRODUCTION: In 2012, Norwegian news media reported on cases of brain cancer among Norwegian peacekeeping troops who served in Kosovo, allegedly caused by exposure to depleted uranium fired during airstrikes before the peacekeepers arrived in 1999. A first study followed 6076 military men and women with peacekeeping service in Kosovo during 1999-2011 for cancers and deaths throughout 2011. The study did not support to the idea that peacekeeping service in Kosovo could lead to increased risk of brain cancer or other cancers. However, the average time of follow-up ...

CONCLUSION: Among patients with metastatic DTC, patients with RAIR have similar histopathological and clinical characteristics as patients with RAI avid cancer. The risk of having RAIR TC is increased at age ≥ 46 and reduced in Caucasians. Thyroid cancers that are RAIR may have a distinct mutational landscape.

Expression of circular RNA CDR1‑AS in colon cancer cells increases cell surface PD‑L1 protein levels. Oncol Rep. 2019 Jul 19;: Authors: Tanaka E, Miyakawa Y, Kishikawa T, Seimiya T, Iwata T, Funato K, Odawara N, Sekiba K, Yamagami M, Suzuki T, Ishibashi R, Otsuka M, Koike K Abstract The expression of CDR1‑AS, a representative circular RNA, is closely linked with poor prognosis in gastrointestinal cancers, such as colon, liver, and pancreatic cancers. Although it is well known that CDR1‑AS antagonizes microRNA‑7 function through its sequence similarities in the brain, its biological function a...
