The association between use of statin or aspirin and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma: A nested case ‐control study in a Korean nationwide cohort
This study aimed to evaluate the association between use of statin or aspirin and PDAC in a nationwide large cohort.MethodsIn this nested case ‐control study, we used data from a 12‐year nationwide longitudinal cohort in Korea. Cases with PDAC and controls who were matched to cases by age, sex, income, and index year at a 1:5 ratio were established. We used multivariate logistic regression analyses to identify the independent risk fact ors of PDAC.ResultsWe identified a total of 827 patients with PDAC between 2007 and 2013, and included 4135 matched controls. Diabetes mellitus, chronic and acute pancreatitis, pancreatic cystic lesions, and cholelithiasis were independent risk factors for PDAC. Statin use (odds ratio [OR], 0.92; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.76 ‐1.11;P = .344; adjusted OR [aOR], 0.70; 95% CI 0.56‐0.87;P = .001) was associated with a reduced risk of PDAC after correction of the confounding factors, but aspirin use (OR, 0.98; 95% CI 0.84‐1.15;P = .838; aOR 0.84; 95% CI 0.70‐1.01,P = .068) was not associated with PDAC. Among the patients with risk factors, both statin use (OR, 0.50; 95% CI 0.38‐0.66;P

Conclusion The current level of awareness for clinical trials of cancer patients in our hospital was relatively low, even in patients who had atte nded clinical trials before. It’s necessary to improve patients’ awareness of clinical trial by promoting harmony relationship between patients and doctors, as well as by enhancing related propagation. Strengthening the adequacy and efficacy of informed consent in clinical trials also needs to b e achieved in the future. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.02
Conclusion T4 stage patients had worse survival in N2 group. To get a more precisely stratification, skip metastasis and number of involved lymph node stations should be considered in future N stage classification. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.03
Conclusion The expression of TRIM59 is closely related to the prognosis of NSCLC patients, and it is an independent risk factor for NSCLC patients. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.04
This study mainly explores the relationship between the ASPM expression of lung adenocarcinoma and the development and prognosis of lung cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the expression of abnormal spindle-like microcephaly-associated protein (ASPM) in lung adenocarcinoma and the development and prognosis in lung cancer. Methods A total of 90 cases of lung adenocarcinoma tissue specimens and 90 cases of benign pulmonary lesions were collected, the expression of ASPM was detected by immunohistochemical technique, and the expression of ASPM in 12 pairs of tissues was detected by real-t...
