Severe Symptoms Persist for Up to One Year After Diagnosis of Stage I-III Lung Cancer: An Analysis of Province-Wide Patient Reported Outcomes

Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide, accounting for approximately 17% and 9% of all cancers in men and women, respectively, and more than 1.6 million cancer-related deaths every year [1]. Patients with non-metastatic disease are eligible for curative treatment, which can include various combinations of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy [2 –4]. The risk of experiencing major morbidity from surgery ranges from 10%-30% and most common symptomatic complications include arrhythmias, pneumonia and pulmonary embolism [5].

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that MTC is a more immunologically active tumor that has been previously reported. Patients with advanced MTC should be screened for targetable antigens and immune checkpoints to determine their eligibility for current clinical trials. Additional studies are necessary to fully characterize the antigenic potential of MTC and may encourage the development of adoptive T cells therapies for this rare tumor.

Dr. Matija Snuderl, neuropathologist and molecular pathologist at  New York University Langone Health, was featured ina recent article appearing inNature (March 26, 2020, Vol 579, p S14-S16). The article, which addresses the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in cancer diagnostics, opens with Dr. Snuderl experiencing a moment that many of us neuropathologists have had wherein we hesitate before signing out a case because of a feeling that something might be just a bit different about a particular specimen. That feeling prompts us to do something else (run more ancillary testing, get a consult, sleep on it and ta...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...
