The treatment of stage III NSCLC involves a multi-disciplinary approach and careful patient selection to determine which resectable patients might benefit from a trimodality treatment [1,2]. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy administered prior to surgery can reduce tumor extent and metastases, thereby improving resectability. The role of surgery in stage IIIA patients still remains controversial. Survival benefit of surgery in this setting has long been debated and has proven difficult to demonstrate in multi-institute trials compared to definitive chemoradiation [1,3].

Conclusions: In OSCC, very low preoperative NLR values have a negative prognostic impact on survival and recurrence, similarly to high ratios. ENE and perineural spread are the most important clinical-pathologic prognosticators. Introduction Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) accounts for more than 95% of oral tumors and is the eighth most frequent cancer worldwide, with an estimated incidence of 640,000 new cases per year (1). Survival of OSCC has slightly improved over the last 30 years, probably as a consequence of multimodal treatment spreading. However, intensified therapeutic regimens can result in signific...

Conclusions: The newly developed radiomic signature was a powerful predictor of LN metastasis and the radiomics nomogram could facilitate the preoperative individualized prediction of LN status. Introduction Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most common malignant tumors and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide (1). Accurate evaluation of lymph node metastasis (LNM) status in GC patients is vital for prognosis and treatment decisions (2–4). Some histopathologic factors and biomarkers (e.g., lymphatic invasion, matrix metalloproteinase-2) are found to be able to predict LNM in GC, but mos...

This study had a retrospective multicenter (two hospitals in China) design and a radiomic analysis was performed using contrast enhanced CT in advanced HGSOC (FIGO stage III or IV) patients. We used a minimum 18-month follow-up period for all patients (median 38.8 months, range 18.8–81.8 months). All patients were divided into three cohorts according to the timing of their surgery and hospital stay: training cohort (TC) and internal validation cohort (IVC) were from one hospital, and independent external validation cohort (IEVC) was from another hospital. A total of 620 3-D radiomic features were extracted and a Lass...

Authors: Nagasaka M, Gadgeel SM Abstract INTRODUCTION: Adjuvant platinum based chemotherapy is accepted as standard of care in stage II and III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients and is often considered in patients with stage IB disease who have tumors ≥ 4 cm. The survival advantage is modest with approximately 5% at 5 years. Areas covered: This review article presents relevant data regarding chemotherapy use in the perioperative setting for early stage NSCLC. A literature search was performed utilizing PubMed as well as clinical trial.gov. Randomized phase III studies in this setting including adjuvant...

CONCLUSION: Both 60 and 66Gy administered concomitant with oral vinorelbine showed similar local control and overall survival, and was well tolerated. The pick the winner design choose 66Gy as the winning arm. PMID: 28410809 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsFractional decrease in FDG SULmax from baseline to post-cycle 1 imaging was significantly different between anatomic responders and non-responders, while percentage changes in FLT SULmax were not significantly different between these groups over the same period of time.

Conclusions: This paper aims to alert for this rare and aggressive tumor, affecting mostly smoking male, which remains poorly explored. The better knowledge of PSC biology and molecular profile is critical for understanding the role of immunotherapy and targeted agents in this difficult to treat disease.

Conclusion: PET/CT distinguishes responders from nonresponders early after completion of chemoradiation in patients with locally advanced NSCLC, but did not provide any prognostic significance.

CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that neoadjuvant therapy was feasible, and helpful for tumor and pathologic nodal downstaging with promising rates of survival in patients with stage IIIA-N2 NSCLC. After induction therapy, patients with potentially radical lobectomy were more likely to benefit from operation. Pathological nodal downstaging of pN2 to pN0-1, rather than clinical response was predictive of a favorable outcome, and was correlated with a better chance of survival. PMID: 26543609 [PubMed]
