Prevalence of Occult Peribronchial N1 Nodal Metastasis in Peripheral Clinical N0 Small (≤2 cm) Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

ConclusionsOccult nodal disease was frequently identified in peripheral N1 stations (11-13) in patients with small (≤2 cm) clinical N0 NSCLC. Hilar lymphadenectomy is essential for accurate staging in the management of patients with small clinical N0 NSCLC.

NCAPH is negatively associated with Mcl‑1 in non‑small cell lung cancer. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Jul 28;: Authors: Xiong Q, Fan S, Duan L, Liu B, Jiang X, Chen X, Xiong C, Tao Q, Wang J, Zhang H, Chen C, Duan Y Abstract Lung cancer has a high mortality rate worldwide. Non‑SMC condensin I complex subunit H (NCAPH) has been identified to be one of the regulatory subunits of the condensin I complex, which is essential for the correct packaging and segregation of chromosomes in eukaryotes. NCAPH is abnormally overexpressed in various types of cancer. A pro‑survival member of the Bcl‑2 family, myeloid c...

Abstract Breast metastasis from extramammary malignancy is rare, with a reported incidence rate of 0.4% to 1.3% in the published literature. The primary malignancies that most commonly metastasize to the breast are leukemia, lymphoma, and malignant melanoma. Here, we report a very rare case of metastatic EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in the breast detected by screening mammography. The patient had initially been diagnosed with a clinical stage IIIA NSCLC and had been treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiation followed by curative-intent surgery. Several interesting aspects of the case, along with a ...

A mesothelioma clinical trial involving genetically modified T cells has opened to considerable acclaim, shrinking tumors in the first five patients who were treated. The phase I portion of the clinical trial is designed to define the safety profile and optimal dosage level of TC-210, a novel immunotherapy targeting mesothelin, a cell-surface protein often overexpressed in several cancers. While T cell modifications in the laboratory are proving safe and well tolerated, the initial signs of consistent efficacy became an early bonus in phase I. Four of the patients treated had mesothelioma. The fifth had ovarian cancer. All...

Abstract A series of new 1,6-dihydropyrimidin-2-thiol derivatives (scaffold A) as VEGFR-2 inhibitors has been designed and synthesized. Compounds 3a, 3b, 3e and 4b have been selected for in vitro anticancer screening by the National Cancer Institute. Compound 3e showed remarkable anticancer activity against most of the cell lines tested, where a complete cell death against leukemia, non-small cell lung cancer, colon, CNS, melanoma, and breast cancer cell lines was observed. In vitro five dose tests showed that compound 3e had high activity against most of the tested cell lines with GI50 ranging from 19 to 100 ...

Conclusions: In summary, the dominant function of FAS may vary in different malignancies. FAS mRNA expression was correlated with better OS in breast cancer, gastric cancer and lung cancer, but worse OS in pancreatic cancer and AML. We also suggested that FAS mRNA expression could be a potential biomarker for cabozantinib and erlotinib.

AbstractA series of new C28-amino-lupanes bearing A-azepano- and A-seco-3-amino-fragments was synthesized from 3,28-dioximino-betulin and evaluated for cytotoxicity toward the NCI-60 cancer cell line panel and antimicrobial activity against key ESKAPE pathogens. A-azepano-28-amino-betulin exhibited remarkable activities with GI50 ranging from 1.16 to 2.27  μM against all panel with the highest activity toward leukemia, colon cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and breast cancer. The replacement of the hydroxyl group at C28 in the structure of azepanobetulin to the amino group did not show a strong effect on the cy...

ConclusionThe use of H2 blockers, presence of liver metastasis, and CYP3A4 inducers were associated with high-grade hepatotoxicity of TKIs. In subgroup analyses, presence of exon 19 deletion, and/or proton pump inhibitors, was additional risk factors for high-grade hepatotoxicity in special patients and use of specific TKIs. Close liver function monitoring is recommended, especially in patients with liver metastasis or using H2 blockers or CYP3A4 inducers.

Abstract The introduction of the alkynyl moiety to the abietane diterpenic core by modification of the cycle E of methyl dihydroquinopimarate is described. The arylpropargyl, aminopropargyl, and 1,2,3-triazole derivatives are synthesized via Sonogashira reaction, Mannich reaction and click-chemistry, correspondingly. The antitumor effect towards the NCI-60 cancer cell line panel and antimicrobial activity against key ESKAPE pathogens of the synthesized compounds were studied in vitro. The cytotoxicity and hemolytic activity of the abietane derivatives was tested using HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line and th...

Abstract Eleven novel acridone derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their anticancer activity against 60 human cancer cell lines. Five compounds 8b, 8d, 8g, 8h, and 8k displayed very good in vitro antiproliferative activities well over 95% of the panels. The most active compound is 8k (5, 7-dibromo-3-phenyl-3,4-dihydroacridin-1 (2H)-one). In addition, 8k was the most sensitive agent in all 9 panels starting with prostate (0.075 µm), leukemia (0.116 µm), non-small cell lung cancer (0.164 µm), colon cancer (0.193 µm), CNS cancer (0.264 µm), melanoma (0...
