Authors: Polański J, Jankowska-Polańska B, Mazur G, Chabowski M Abstract Behavioral cognitive therapy is recommended for lung cancer-related pain. The aim of the study was to analyze the strategies of coping with pain in relation to the histological type of lung cancer. The study included 257 lung cancer patients, divided into small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) group (n = 72) and non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) group (n = 185). Pain was evaluated on a visual analog scale (VAS), while pain-coping strategies with the Coping Strategies Questionnaire. The two groups differed concerning the per...

Contributors : Vito Quaranta ; Julien SageSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusAdopting a systems approach, we devise a general workflow to define actionable subtypes in human cancers. Applied to small cell lung cancer (SCLC), the workflow identifies four subtypes based on global gene expression patterns and ontologies. Three correspond to known subtypes, while the fourth is a previously undescribed neuroendocrine variant (NEv2). Tumor deconvolution with subtype gene signatures shows that all of the subtypes are detectable in varying proportions in human and mouse tumors. T...

Authors: Dalwadi SM, Zhang J, Bernicker EH, Butler EB, Teh BS, Farach AM Abstract With modern radiotherapy, stage I non-small cell lung cancer (S1NSCLC) cure is extended to nonsurgical candidates. Despite this, some S1NSCLC remains untreated. We aim to identify factors associated with no treatment. 62,213 S1NSCLC cases were identified (SEER: 2004-2012). Demographics were compared using Chi-squared. Multivariate analysis was performed using COX proportional HR. 11.9% of the 7373 patients lacked treatment. No insurance, Medicaid-dependence, unmarried status, advancing age, lower income, African American and Asian/Pac...

We examined the U.S. thoracic surgery workforce using the 2010 and 2014 Area Health Resource Files. We calculated the density of thoracic surgeons per 100,000 persons for each year at the state and county level. We performed descriptive statistics and developed maps highlighting changes over time and geographic regions.ResultsDespite an overall increase in thoracic surgeons from 2010 to 2014, we observed declining density nationwide (1.5% change) and in sparsely populated states. The difference in thoracic surgeon density widened slightly between 2010 from 0.80 per 100,000 compared with 0.84 per 100,000 in 2014 in all rura...

ConclusionsA consolidation size of more than 2 cm and GGO− were predictors of pN+, and the clinical T factor of the 8th Edition was a stronger predictor of the pN+ status than that of the 7th edition.

ConclusionsVATS sleeve lobectomy is a safe and effective procedure associated with better postoperative recovery and equivalent oncological results, even for locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer patients with an invasive tumor size larger than 3 cm or accompanying lymphatic invasion.

This study aimed to clarify whether CT histogram analysis of tumors can be used to classify patients with clinical stage 0 to IA non-small cell lung cancer according to pathologic lymph node (pN) status.MethodsPredictive factors associated with pN metastasis were identified from the derivation dataset including 629 patients with clinical stage 0 to IA non-small cell lung cancer who underwent complete resection with lymph node dissection (surgeries between 2008 and 2013). The validation dataset including 238 patients (surgeries between 2014 and 2015) were subsequently reevaluated. Clinicosurgical factors, including CT histo...
