This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of different generations of EGFR TKI therapy in ASC patients with sensitiveEGFR mutations.MethodsPatients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) diagnosed at the Shanghai Chest Hospital between January 2010 and December 2016 were retrospectively reviewed.ResultsA total of 10,037 NSCLC patients tested forEGFR mutations were screened, with primary ASC accounting for 1.4% (139/10,037). PositiveEGFR mutations were found in 51.1% (71/139) of ASC patients, including 67 sensitive mutations (19del or 21L858R) and four uncommon mutations (19del  + 20T790M, 21L858R&thin...

ABSTRACT Carcinoma cuniculatum (CC), a rare variant of oral squamous cell carcinoma, presents well-differentiated neoplastic epithelial cells infiltrating the underlying submucosal or bone tissues, forming the so-called "rabbit burrows" filled with keratin. A 67-year-old female patient was referred complaining of a painless tumoral mass in the left mandibular body, with several months of evolution. Previous history indicated extraction of the teeth #37 and #38 and diagnosis of chronic suppurative osteomyelitis. A deep incisional biopsy revealed CC. Due to its microscopic features, suggesting an inflammatory or re...

ABSTRACT Squamous cell carcinoma is a malignant neoplasm that affects the structures and tissues of the oral cavity. Interleukins (IL) synthesized from a tumor modulate a cascade reaction that may influence the prognosis of the disease. We aim to investigate in the literature whether interleukins are mediators that negatively or positively influence the prognosis of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma. A systematic review study was performed according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyzes (PRISMA) instructions. PubMed (including MedLine), Scopus, Web of Science, SciELO and Latin A...

Conclusion The association of routine video anoscopy during colonoscopy improved diagnosis of neoplastic anal lesions, allowed correct classification of the degree of hemorrhoidal disease, helped to confirm the bleeding site and detected other anal pathologies. The main findings were hemorrhoidal diseases, fissures and perianal fistulas. The study suggests that VA should be used in all colonoscopies.

AbstractAimsTo explore the relationship between excision repair cross-complementing 1 (ERCC1) gene expression and clinical pathological parameters and prognosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients who received the surgical therapy.MethodsTo identify relevant articles, a systematic literature retrieval was conducted in several databases, including the Embase, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, PubMed, VIP, Wanfang, and CNKI. The association of ERCC1 gene expression with clinicopathological characteristics and survival was assessed by the pooled relative risk (RR) and hazard ratio (HR) with the corresponding...
