Lung cancer symptoms: The simple finger test that could help identify the deadly disease

LUNG cancer symptoms don ’t usually show in the early stages and only tend to develop as the condition progresses, making identifying symptoms as soon as they arise extremely important. A simple finger test known as the Schamroth’s window test could help identify the deadly disease.

We reported a case of carotid artery stenosis with stroke symptoms detected in a patient with lung cancer after radiotherapy. The patient was a 58-year-old male with a complaint of \"a single episode of temporary amaurosis in the right eye for 10 minutes". The clinical diagnosis at admission, after consideration of the patient's age, medical history, and auxiliary examination results, was as follows: lung cancer; right common carotid artery stenosis; left common carotid artery stenosis; left vertebral artery stenosis; and right subclavian artery occlusion with right subclavian steal syndrome (Grade 3). Carot...

Serine-arginine protein kinase (SRPK) belongs to a class of cell cycle regulating kinases that can phosphorylate proteins containing serine/arginine-Rich (SR) regions. SR proteins are a family of RNA binding phosphoproteins that control both constitutive and alternative pre-mRNA splicing events. However, little is known about their role in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In the present study, we found that serine-arginine protein kinase 2 (SRPK2) expression was upregulated in NSCLC tissues compared with adjacent normal tissues. Kaplan-Meier curve analyses showed that the overall survival time of NSCLC patients with hig...

The objective of this study is to evaluate the preventive effects of landiolol hydrochloride, which is an ultra-short-acting beta-1-selective blocker that has been developed in Japan, on reducing recurrence of cancer after curative surgery for patients with lung cancer.MethodsThe present study is a phase III, multicenter, randomized trial with two parallel groups of patients with lung cancer, comparing surgery alone and surgery with landiolol administration for three  days during the perioperative period. A total of 400 patients will be enrolled from 12 Japanese institutions. The primary endpoint is two-year relapse...

AbstractLung cancer results in more patient deaths each year than any other cancer type. Additional treatment strategies are needed to improve clinical responses to approved treatment modalities and prevent the emergence of resistant disease. Catecholamines including norepinephrine and epinephrine are elevated as a result of chronic stress and mediate their physiological effects through activation of adrenergic receptors on target tissues. Lung cancer cells express β-adrenergic receptors (β-ARs), and numerous preclinical studies indicate that β2-AR signaling on lung cancer cells facilities cellular programs ...
