A nodule with a diameter of 19 mm was found in the right lung and diagnosed as lung squamous cell carcinoma. Anti-cancer treatments were not performed because of the presence of advanced interstitial pneumonia and chronic respiratory failure. Cyclosporine A was tapered to avoid suppression of anti-tumor immunity, ...

CONCLUSION: AI AS GOOD OR BETTER than middle rad residents EXCEPT: “ In general, residents performed better for more subtle anomalies, such as masses and nodules, misplaced lines and tubes, and various forms of consolidation, while the AI algorithm was better at detecting nonanomalous findings, the presence of tubes and lines, and clearly visible anomalies, such as cardiomegaly, pleural effusion, and pulmonary edema," the authors wrote. "Conversely, the AI algorithm generally performed worse for lower-prevalence findings that also had a higher level of difficulty of interpretation, such as masses or nodul...

Authors: Alzahrani SM, Ko CS, Yoo MW Abstract Purpose: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) risk calculator is useful in predicting postoperative adverse events. However, its accuracy in specific disorders is unclear. We validated the ACS NSQIP risk calculator in patients with gastric cancer undergoing curative laparoscopic surgery. Materials and Methods: We included 207 consecutive early gastric cancer patients who underwent laparoscopic gastrectomy between January 2018 and January 2019. The preoperative characteristics and risks of the patients were review...

CONCLUSIONS: Our study shows that the lymphocytes of 100% of asymptomatic carriers were in the normal range. This result indicates that the host immunity of asymptomatic carriers is not significantly disrupted by COVID-19. Single PCR detection is not sufficient to screen among asymptomatic individuals, and a combination of PCR tests, serological tests and CT is of great importance. Unless the tumour is life-threatening or rapidly progressing, we advise restarting active anti-tumour therapy after PCR tests become negative. PMID: 33015823 [PubMed - in process]

Largely unexpected, only 78 of 1227 tested cancer patients showed a COVID ‐19 infection of which only three patients were symptomatic, ranging from mild symptoms to pneumonia. These data clearly contrast the view that oncology patients are particularly vulnerable to SARS‐CoV‐2 and suggest that necessary chemotherapies could be continued or started despite the ongoin g pandemic. One explanation could be the immunosuppressive effect of simultaneous systemic therapy which will be further investigated. AbstractOncologic patients are regarded as the population most at risk of developing a severe course of COVID ‐19 due ...

Authors: Nishima S, Miyanaga A, Saito S, Yuasa M, Takahashi S, Kashiwada T, Sugano T, Noro R, Minegishi Y, Terasaki Y, Saito Y, Kubota K, Seike M, Gemma A Abstract Osimertinib is the standard treatment for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-mutant non-small-cell lung cancer. However, drug-induced interstitial lung disease (ILD) is recognized as a serious adverse event associated with EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). We herein report a 78-year-old woman with stage IV lung adenocarcinoma harboring an EGFR L858R mutation on exon 21 who received rechallenge treatment with afatinib after osimertinib-induced ...

In this report, both patients had lung mass accompanied by cough that lasted for>2 weeks, and were admitted to hospital for further diagnosis and treatment to clarify the nature of the mass. To make a definite diagnosis, EBUS-TBNA examination was performed under general anesthesia. Both patients had no salient past history. Diagnosis: Case 1 was diagnosed as tumor or pneumonia based on the right lung shadow. Case 2 was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the right lung with right hilar lymph node metastasis. The diagnostic results of both patients were based on pathological examination of tissues obtained by EB...
