Lung cancer in patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. A retrospective multicenter study in Greece

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.

Abstract The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical profiles and treatment outcomes of patients with lung cancer admitted to the Medical Psychiatric Unit (MPU), which is built for patients with physical and severe psychiatric disorders. All medical records of patients with lung cancer admitted to the MPU of Tachikawa hospital were reviewed. The clinical outcomes of these patients were retrospectively evaluated between January 2010 and December 2016. A total of 24 patients in the MPU were histologically or cytologically diagnosed with primary lung cancer. Of these, 20 patients had schizophrenia, ...

In this study, we evaluated the efficacy of anlotinib as third ‐ or further‐line treatment for patient with different histological types of NSCLC. In the ALTER0303 trial, 336 patients had the histological subtype of adenocarcinoma (ACC), 86 patients had the histological subtype of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and 15 patients had another subtype. Our findi ngs suggest that anlotinib significantly improves PFS and OS in ACC patients and has a tendency to prolong survival in SCC patients. AbstractBackgroundAnlotinib showed significant survival benefits in advanced non ‐small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients as a thir...

Conclusion: The TIMP3 silencing observed in the NLNT and its negative correlation with presurgical expression of miR-20a (from serum exosomes), suggest that miRs can influence ECM remodeling at a distance from the center of the lesion. The miRs expression pattern in serum obtained before surgery significantly differs between AC and SCC subtypes. Moreover, decreased TIMP3 expression in NLNT (in SCC group) negatively correlates with the amount of tobacco smoked in a lifetime in PY.

Conclusions: EGFR mutated in 10%, mostly in women and non-smokers, all of them adenocarcinoma. Low prevalence of the other mutations. Mutation of EGFR has better prognosis. In the multivariate analysis, the IVA vs IVB stage, ECOG, RT and treatment with ITK in mutated EGFR leads to a better prognosis.

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.

Background: Atezolizumab (anti-PD-L1 antibody) can be used with anti-PD-1 antibodies (nivolumab and pembrolizumab) for treating NSCLC. The safety and efficacy of atezolizumab are unclear in patients who were previously treated with anti-PD-1 antibodies.Aim: To investigate the efficacy and safety of atezolizumab in patients who previously received anti-PD-1 antibodies.Methods: We retrospectively reviewed NSCLC patients who received atezolizumab after receiving anti-PD-1 antibodies. We evaluated tumour PD-L1 expression, cycles of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies, best response, progression free survival, and prior chemotherapies.R...

Expression of DR5 and c‑FLIP proteins as novel prognostic biomarkers for non‑small cell lung cancer patients treated with surgical resection and chemotherapy. Oncol Rep. 2019 Oct 04;: Authors: Zheng H, Zhang Y, Zhan Y, Liu S, Lu J, Wen Q, Fan S Abstract TRAIL‑R2 (DR5), one of the death receptors, can activate the extrinsic apoptosis pathway, while cellular FLICE‑inhibitory protein (c‑FLIP) can inhibit this pathway. Both of them play important roles in the occurrence and development of most tumors. To date, there is no relevant report concerning the relationship between expression of DR5 and c...

Abstract PURPOSE: Activation of NFE2L2 has been linked to chemoresistance in cell line models. Recently, somatic mutations which activate NFE2L2, including mutations in NFE2L2,KEAP1, or CUL3,have been found to be associated with poor outcomes in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the impact of these mutations on chemoresistance remains incompletely explored. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We investigated the effect of Keap1 deletion on chemoresistance in cell lines from Trp53-based mouse models of lung squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) and lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD). Separately, we identified 51 st...
