EltayebAbstractThe synthesis of the benzoimidazolyl-ferrocene containing compound was achieved by Knovenagel condensation of ferrocene-1-carbaldehyde and (2-benzoimidazolyl) acetonitrile. Single crystal structure of the compound showed intramolecular (hydrogen bonding) NH⋯N interactions, forming an infinite 1D-chain that propagate along the [010] direction. The titled compound exhibits two major energy bands around 360 nm and 515 nm in the UV–vis ran...

ConclusionsOverall HCAHPS satisfaction scores following lung resection for cancer were high and negatively associated with increasing length of stay. Patient satisfaction may be impacted more by the perception of effective communication during prolonged hospitalizations than by complications.

This study aims to investigate the mechanism of M3R involved in the growth of NSCLC.Main methodsThe CRISPR/Cas9 was used to knock out (KO) the M3R gene. A real-time cell analyzer (RTCA) was used to record the proliferation of NSCLC cells. The migration and cell cycle of NSCLC cells were evaluated with scratch test and flow cytometry (FCM), respectively. Antibody microarray analysis was performed to detect the expression of proteins after antagonizing M3R and knocking out of M3R, subsequently some of these important proteins were verified by western blot.Key findingsThe proliferation and migration of NSCLC cells were inhibi...

AbstractMHC class I-related chain A (MICA) is one of the major ligands for natural killer group 2 member D (NKG2D), which is an activating NK receptor. MICA is expressed on the surface of human epithelial tumor cells, and its shedding from tumor cells leads to immunosuppression. To activate immune response in the tumor microenvironment, we designed an anti-VEGFR2 –MICA bispecific antibody (JZC01), consisting of MICA and an anti-VEGFR2 single chain antibody fragment (JZC00) and explored its potential anti-tumor activity. JZC01 targeted vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2) and inhibited tumorigenesis ...

SummaryPurpose Anorexia induced by cytotoxic chemotherapy on delayed phase is a highly frequent adverse event. We aimed to determine the effects of rikkunshito (RKT) on chemotherapy-induced anorexia (CIA) in patients with lung cancer.Methods This prospective, randomized, cross-over pilot trial included 40 lung cancer patients scheduled to undergo cisplatin-based chemotherapy and randomized to either a group given RKT 7.5  g/day for 14 days (Group A,N = 20) or not (Group B,N = 20), then the treatments were switched. All patients received dexamethasone, palonosetron hydrochloride and apr...

AbstractPurposeN2 lymph-node metastases occur in approximately 6 –17% of the patients with T1-2 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the clinical characteristics of N2 patients are not fully understood.MethodsThis retrospective, multi-center analysis included T1 NSCLC patients receiving surgical resection during a period from Jan 2nd, 2014 to Dec 27th, 2017. The diagnosis was pathologically verified in all cases. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were conducted to analyze the factors that are associated with pN2 lymph-node metastases.ResultsA total of 10,885 patients (48.4% men; 84.7% a...

ConclusionsPhysicians should be aware of the possibility of the emergence of primary malignancies in patients with a history of papillary thyroid carcinoma, especially lung cancer as it is a common site of papillary thyroid carcinoma metastases. Using appropriate diagnostic evaluations in order to choose the best therapeutic option is of utmost importance.

ConclusionCancer screening trials are able to demonstrate a significant reduction in all ‐cause mortality due to screening, but require very large sample sizes. Depending on the cancer, 40 000‐600 000 participants per arm are needed to demonstrate a significant reduction. The reduction in all‐cause mortality can only be detected between specific years of follow‐up, more limite d than the timeframe to detect a reduction in cancer‐specific mortality.
