AbstractBackgroundSubxiphoid uniportal video ‐assisted thoracoscopic surgery (SVATS) is more technically challenging than intercostal uniportal video‐assisted thoracoscopic surgery (UVATS), especially in more complex procedures such as segmentectomy. We therefore aimed to investigate the worthiness of undertaking the more demanding subxiph oid approach in patients who had undergone anatomical segmentectomy for stage IA non‐small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).MethodsA total of 491 patients were included in our study who had undergone anatomical segmentectomy for stage IA non ‐small cell lung cancer from September 2014 to...

Cardiovascular disease is an important contributor to particle ‐induced diseases. Inhalation of (nano)particles induces acute phase response, a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease. New evidence is reviewed, showing causal relationships between inhalation of particle and nanomaterials, induction of acute phase response and risk of cardiovascular disea se. Particle‐induced acute phase response provides a means for risk assessment of particle‐induced cardiovascular disease. AbstractInhaled nanoparticles constitute a potential health hazard due to their size ‐dependent lung deposition and large surface to mass...

Dr. Laura Mulvey, 33, practices emergency medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. After spending six days receiving treatment in her own hospital, she is now recovering at home from what is presumed to be COVID-19, though her test was inconclusive. What follows is a lightly-edited transcript of her story as told to TIME. Early on, sometime in February, [COVID-19] was something that people were thinking about. And worried about. Certainly, the worries were not what they are now. But hospital-wise, we had a bit of an earlier jump on it, because we recognized that this was a potential threat. We’re ...

Contributors : Ivan Martinez ; Tayvia BrownmillerSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensNumerous studies have implicated changes in the Y chromosome in male cancers, however few have investigated the biological importance of Y chromosome non-coding RNAs. Here, we demonstrate a group of Y chromosome-expressed long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) involved in male non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) radiation sensitivity. Radiosensitive male NSCLC cell lines demonstrated a dose-dependent induction of linc-SPRY3-2/3/4 following irradiation, not observed in radioresistant male NSCLC cell lines. Cytogenetics ...

(Natural News) Quercetin is a plant pigment or flavonoid that’s present in fruits, vegetables, seeds and grains. It is considered one of the most abundant antioxidants in the human diet. Apart from its antioxidant activities, quercetin is also known for having other beneficial properties, such as anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertensive, anti-obesity and even anti-cancer activities. In an recent study published in The...

The objective of this study was to determine the comparative diagnostic accuracy, sensitivity, and negative predictive value for R-EBUS and ENB in sampling PPLs. Methods: A systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted. The Ovid Medline database was queried for original research reporting a diagnostic yield of R-EBUS or ENB for PPLs identified on computed tomography chest suspicious for malignancy. The I2 statistic assessed study heterogeneity. Random effects models produced pooled estimates of diagnostic accuracy and sensitivity for malignancy. Reasons for heterogeneity were explored with meta-regression. Publicat...
