Bronchoscopic re-biopsy for progressive lung cancer

Conclusion: Bronchoscopic re-biopsy for progressive lung cancer is feasible and safe. Histological change can be detected in a considerable number of patients, which is potentially valuable information for guidance of subsequent treatment.

Authors: Lou M, Gao Z, Zhu T, Mao X, Wang Y, Yuan K, Tong J Abstract As a member of the tripartite motif family, tripartite motif-containing protein 59 (TRIM59) serves as an E3 ubiquitin ligase in various cellular processes, including intracellular signaling, development, apoptosis, protein quality control, innate immunity, autophagy and carcinogenesis. The present study aimed to investigate the expression and prognostic value of TRIM59 in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Expression of TRIM59 in patients with NSCLC was measured by immunohistochemistry in tissue microarrays. Datasets from The Cancer...

ins I Abstract Allogeneic cancer cell lines serve as universal source of tumor-associated antigens in cancer vaccines. Immunogenic high hydrostatic pressure-killed cancer cells derived from cell lines can be used for the generation of dendritic cell (DC)-based active cellular immunotherapy of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We investigated the expression of 12 known NSCLC tumor-associated antigens (TAA) (CEA, MAGE-A1, MAGE-A3, MAGE-A4, PRAME, hTERT, HER2, MUC1, Survivin, STEAP1, SOX2 and NY-ESO-1) in 6 NSCLC cell lines as candidates for the generation of DC-based lung cancer vaccine. We showed that the selecte...

Authors: Jin Y, Shen X, Pan Y, Zheng Q, Chen H, Hu H, Li Y Abstract Background: Programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) is a predictive marker of anti-programmed death protein 1 (PD-1)/PD-L1 therapies for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, little is known between PD-L1 expression and the clinicopathological characteristics of NSCLC in the Chinese population in a real-world setting. Methods: We analyzed PD-L1 expression by immunohistochemistry (IHC) in NSCLC patients using the 22C3 clone on the Dako Autostainer Link 48 platform. We then examined the associations of PD-L1 expression with clinicopathological c...

The development of targeted therapies has revolutionized the treatment of patients with lung cancer, especially non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) is a research hotspot of molecular targeted therapy for lung cancer. ALK tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are highly effective for ALK-rearranged NSCLC-positive patients. These targeted therapies have significant clinical effects; however, they inevitably lead to acquired resistance. In previous studies, the histological transformation after ALK inhibitor treatment was mostly based on small-cell lung cancer (SCLC).

The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of Kif18A in cancerous and paracancerous tissues from 100 patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This was a prospective study of 100 patients with pathologically confirmed NSCLC (adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma [SCC], n = 50/group) that were operated at the Quanzhou First Hospital Affiliated to Fujian Medical University between June 2015 and December 2016. Kif18A protein expression in cancerous and paracancerous normal tissues was detected by western blot and immunohistochemistry. The expression of the Kif18A protein was higher in adenocarci...

ConclusionsIPF is a risk factor for lung cancer development. In line with current literature, squamous cell carcinoma is the most common histologic subtype in patients with IPF. Large randomized controlled studies on the management of patients with IPF and lung cancer are sorely needed.

ewski Kretowski Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) represents a heterogeneous group of malignancies consisting essentially of adenocarcinoma (ADC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Although the diagnosis and treatment of ADC and SCC have been greatly improved in recent decades, there is still an urgent need to identify accurate transcriptome profile associated with the histological subtypes of NSCLC. The present study aims to identify the key dysregulated pathways and genes involved in the development of lung ADC and SCC and to relate them with the clinical traits. The transcriptional changes between tumour and nor...
