Cancers, Vol. 12, Pages 896: Detection of Circulating Tumor Cells in the Diagnostic Leukapheresis Product of Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer Patients Comparing CellSearch® and ISET Cancers doi: 10.3390/cancers12040896 Authors: Tamminga Andree Hiltermann Jayat Schuuring van den Bos Spierings Lansdorp Timens Terstappen Groen Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) detected by CellSearch are prognostic in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but rarely found. CTCs can be extracted from the blood together with mononuclear cell populations by diagnostic leukapheresis (DLA), therefore concentrating th...

AbstractLymph node assessment is an essential component of the treatment of lung cancer. Identification of the correct “N” stage is important for staging which in turn determines treatment. Assessment of lymph nodes may be accomplished using imaging with CT scan and PET–CT, invasive techniques such as mediastinoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) or endoscopic ultrasoun d fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Ultimately, regardless of any pre-resection assessment, lymph nodes must be assessed at the time of resection. The question to be addressed in this report is the ...

ConclusionsCurrent clinical trials are exploring combination therapy and novel treatment strategies beyond immune checkpoint therapies and vaccine therapy such as CAR T cells. There is also an effort to establish synergy between immunotherapy and current standard of care. Furthermore, recent advances in personalized neoantigen vaccines suggest a shift towards personalized, patient-specific GBM treatment.

For the treatment of early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and pulmonary oligo-metastases, beyond the standard of anatomical resection, stereotactic body fractionated radiotherapy (SBRT) has become an alternative treatment option. Providing excellent local tumor control SBRT has widely been established for inoperable patients and for those with a high risk of perioperative complications [2 –4].
