Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: To determine the effects of a prescribed, individualized, 12-week exercise intervention on cardiorespiratory function, muscular strength, and quality of life in lung cancer patients who have undergone a lobectomy. In addition, we sought to compare the exercise training response of lung cancer patients who have undergone a lobectomy to a population of cancer patients with all other cancers in order to examine the specific effects of a lobectomy when compared to cancer patients at large.METHODS: Participants were referre...

Dr. David Prezant was knocked fully airborne at 9:59 on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. He didn’t see the impact coming, but he felt it when it hit—and it nearly killed him. Little more than an hour earlier, Prezant, then the deputy chief medical officer of the Fire Department of New York, was headed for his usual workplace at the FDNY’s Office of Medical Affairs, just across the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn. He had already heard that a plane had hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center, and he reckoned that it was an accident. By the time he reached his office, however, the South Tower had been struc...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Older patients with cancer are at risk of physical decline and impaired quality of life during oncological treatment. Exercise training has the potential to reduce these challenges. The study aim was to investigate the feasibility and effect of a multimodal exercise intervention in older patients with advanced cancer (stages III/IV).PATIENTS AND METHODS: 84 older adults (≥65 years) with advanced pancreatic, biliary tract or non-small cell lung cancer who received systemic oncological treatment were randomized 1:1 to an interventio...

Eur J Pharmacol. 2021 Aug 30;910:174441. doi: 10.1016/j.ejphar.2021.174441. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTGefitinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, was the first targeted therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Gefitinib could block human Ether-à-go-go-Related Gene (hERG) channel, an important target in drug-induced long QT syndrome. However, it is unclear whether gefitinib could induce QT interval prolongation. Here, whole-cell patch-clamp technique was used for evaluating the effect of gefitinib on rapidly-activating delayed rectifier K+ current (IKr), slowly-activating delayed rectifier K+ current (IKs), tr...
