ConclusionsThe data obtained in this study confirmed a potent anti-tumor efficacy caused by the ACA nanoplatform and ultrasound combination. It may provide a beneficial cancer therapy strategy in which the thermal and mechanical effects of ultrasound can intensify the therapeutic ratio of conventional chemotherapy methods.

We describe two patients with advanced non ‐small‐cell lung cancer (NSCLC), including one in whom the definitive diagnosis of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma (PPC) was made by histopathology of the resected tumour and another in whom the diagnosis of “favor adenocarcinoma containing sarcomatoid components” was made by tissue biopsy. Both were resistant to first line platinum‐based chemotherapy, but responded dramatically to second line nivolumab therapy. We present two cases of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma (PPC) treated with Nivolumab. A 57 ‐year‐old man presented with a 3.5‐cm mass in the left l...

CONCLUSIONS: Locally excised T1 rectal cancers should have specific surveillance guidelines distinct from stage I cancers treated with total mesorectal excision. These guidelines should incorporate a method of local surveillance that should be extended beyond the traditional 5-year interval of surveillance. An ultrasound or MRI in addition to or instead of flexible sigmoidoscopy or proctoscopy should also be strongly considered. See Video Abstract at http://links.lww.com/DCR/A979.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate quantitative and semi-quantitative ultrasound molecular imaging (USMI) for antiangiogenic therapy monitoring in human colon cancer xenografts in mice.ProceduresColon cancer was established in 17 mice by injection of LS174T (Nr = 9) or CT26 (Nn = 8) cancer cells to simulate clinical responders and non-responders, respectively. Antiangiogenic treatment (bevacizumab;Nrt = Nnt = 5) or control treatment (saline;Nrc = 4,Nnc = 3) was administered at days 0, 3, and 7. Three-dimensional USMI was performed by injection at d...

While endoscopes give physicians a view into the interior of the GI tract, they are limited in the areas that they can reach and the imaging they can provide. Miniaturized imaging devices in the form of swallowable electronic pills have been around f...

(University of Leeds) Engineers have shown it is technically possible to guide a tiny robotic capsule inside the colon to take micro-ultrasound images.Known as a Sonopill, the device could one day replace the need for patients to undergo an endoscopic examination, where a semi-rigid scope is passed into the bowel - an invasive procedure that can be painful.

CONCLUSIONS: Given currently available data and within the limitations of a model-based decision-analytic approach, the effectiveness of routine intensive surveillance for patients after treatment of colon cancer appears, on average, to be small. Compared with testing using lower cost imaging, currently recommended strategies are associated with cost-effectiveness ratios that indicate low value according to well-accepted willingness-to-pay thresholds in the United States.
