Cytokeratin 7 and thyroid transcription factor - 1 levels in patients with lung cancer complicated with superior vena cava syndrome and their correlation with clinicopathological characteristics.

This study aimed to detect the levels of cytokeratin 7 (CK7) and thyroid transcription factor -1(TTF-1) in serum of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) complicated with superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS), and to explore their prognosis and relationship and correlation with pathological characteristics. METHODS: 68 patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) complicated with SVCS treated in Shaoxing Second Hospital from July 2014 to May 2018 were selected as the experimental group, 60 normal healthy persons as the control group, and 60 patients with lung cancer as the lung cancer group. The levels of CK7 and TTF-1 in the three groups were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and the differences were compared. The relationship between the expression levels of CK7 and TTF-1 and clinicopathological characteristics of patients, the correlation between CK7 and TTF-1 in lung cancer patients complicated with SVCS, and their 3-year survival rate were analyzed. RESULTS: CK7 and TTF-1 levels in experimental group were significantly higher than those in control group (P

Conclusions: In this study we confirmed that ICI drugs can occasionally develop clearly defined autoimmune systemic diseases besides pulmonary toxicity. While discontinuation of therapy and/or treatment can result in resolution of irAEs, long-term sequelae and death have been reported. More studies are needed in order to develop more precise treatments for immunotherapy-related adverse events.

Yicheng Ni Cancer remains a major cause of death globally. Given its relapsing and fatal features, curing cancer seems to be something hardly possible for the majority of patients. In view of the development in cancer therapies, this article summarizes currently available cancer therapeutics and cure potential by cancer type and stage at diagnosis, based on literature and database reviews. Currently common cancer therapeutics include surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy. However, treatment with curative intent by these methods are mainly eligible for patients with localized diseas...

ConclusionsANKRD26-RET is a novel rearrangement of the RET gene, associated with RET expression in thyroid tissue. The result is a fusion of the RET tyrosine kinase to prominent protein-protein interaction motifs. Further studies are required to investigate the influence of different RET rearrangements on metastasis and disease-free survival in PTC.
