Authors: Alexander M, Ko B, Lambert R, Gadgeel S, Halmos B Abstract Introduction: The immune checkpoint inhibitor, pembrolizumab, has revolutionized the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It is currently approved in patients with advanced NSCLC whose tumors have no EGFR or ALK genomic aberrations that express PD-L1 in the first line setting.Areas covered: The authors have reviewed articles discussing pembrolizumab and NSCLC in MEDLINE between July 2013 to August 2019 and focus on recent advances in combining pembrolizumab with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other novel agents in various stages of NSCL...

In this study, we found that glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), a critical enzyme of the pentose phosphate pathway, contributed to cisplatin resistance in NSCLC. The experimental results showed that transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGFβ1) increased the expression of G6PD by activating the forkhead box protein M1-high mobility group AT-hook 1-G6PD (FOXM1-HMGA1-G6PD) transcriptional regulatory pathway, in which TGFβ1 inhibited the ubiquitination and degradation of FOXM1 protein. Additionally, HMGA1 induced TGFβ1 expression, and neutralized TGFβ1 in the culture medium downregulated HMGA1 levels, s...

He was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Nivolumab was given as second-line treatment, cytotoxic chemotherapy was given as third-line treatment, and nivolumab re-challenge was given as fourth-line treatment. Thereafter, 41 chemotherapy courses were administered o...

Authors: Nobili S, Lavacchi D, Perrone G, Vicini G, Tassi R, Landini I, Grosso A, Roviello G, Mazzanti R, Santomaggio C, Mini E Abstract The use of vinorelbine as single agent or in combination regimens in NSCLC is associated with satisfactory clinical activity. However, the role of vinorelbine-based chemotherapy in chemonaive locally advanced unresectable or metastatic NSCLC patients, according to real-world treatment patterns, has still not widely explored. Eighty-one patient treated at a single institution were retrospectively analyzed. Thirty-seven received standard first-line single-agent vinorelbine, 44 vinor...

Authors: Jankowska-Polańska B, Polański J, Chabowski M, Rosińczuk J, Mazur G Abstract The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of cognitive adjustment to cancer, assessed on the mini-Mental Adjustment to Cancer (mini-MAC) scale, on perception of anxiety and depression, assessed with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). There were 185 patients, grouped according to the score of mini-MAC into constructive coping strategies, balanced coping strategies, and destructive coping strategies. We found that patients with predominantly destructive...

Authors: Liao Y, Wang X, Zhong P, Yin G, Fan X, Huang C Abstract As a malignant tumor with poor prognosis, accurate and effective treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is crucial. To predict overall survival in patients with stage II and III NSCLC, a nomogram was constructed using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database. Eligible patients with NSCLC with available clinical information diagnosed between January 1, 2010 and November 31, 2015 were selected from the database, and the data were randomly divided into a training set and a validation set. Univariate and multivariate Cox ...
