RATIONALE: The morbidity and mortality of small cell lung cancer (SCLC), an uncommon malignancy of the lung, remain high. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) creates heat to destroy cancer cells and is usually used to treat non-SCLC, but not SCLC. PATIENT CONCERNS: An 85-year-old male presented with a 2-month history of a productive cough with white phlegm and a 2-day history of hemoptysis. Chest computed tomography revealed a mass in the right lower lobe. DIAGNOSES: An excision biopsy of the mass showed SCLC...

The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart, but their importance to the radiologist extends far beyond this seemingly straightforward function. The anatomy of the pulmonary veins is variable among patients, with several noteworthy variant and anomalous patterns, including supernumerary pulmonary veins, a common ostium, anomalous pulmonary venous return, and levoatriocardinal veins. Differences in pulmonary vein anatomy and the presence of variant or anomalous anatomy can be of critical importance, especially for preoperative planning of pulmonary and cardiac surgery...

REVIEW
Giuseppe Marulli, Marco Mammana, Giovanni Comacchio, Federico Rea
Sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of malignancies with a marked propensity to metastasize to the lungs. Chemotherapy offers only a limited benefit in metastatic disease, whereas lung metastasectomy, in selected cases, can lead to long-term survival. Other local ablative techniques and hybrid therapies have been proposed. A multidisciplinary setting is of paramount importance for choosing the most appropriate treatment for each case. There is no randomized controlled trial providing formal evidence of the effectiveness of lung metastasectomy...

Interventional embolization is a popular minimally invasive vascular therapeutic technique and has been widely applied for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) therapy. However, harmful effects caused by transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) and radioembolization, such as the toxicity of chemotherapy or excessive radiation damage, are serious disadvantages and significantly reduce the therapeutic efficacy. Here, a synergistic therapeutic strategy combined transcatheter arterial embolization and magnetic ablation (TAEMA) by using PLGA-magnetic microspheres (MMs) has been successfully applied to orthotopic VX2 liver tumors of rabbits...

OBJECTIVE: Despite modest improvements, the prognosis of lung cancer patients has still remained poor and new treatment are urgently needed. Photodynamic therapy (PDT), the use of light-activated compounds (photosensitizers) is a treatment option but its use has been restricted to central airway lesions. Here, we report the use of novel porphyrin-lipid nanoparticles (porphysomes) targeted to folate receptor 1 (FOLR1) to enhance the efficacy and specificity of PDT that may translate into a minimally-invasive intervention for peripheral lung cancer and metastatic lymph nodes of advanced lung cancer...

BACKGROUND: For advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), surgical treatment after sorafenib induction has rarely been reported. We examined the survival benefit of additional surgical treatment in sorafenib-treated patients. METHODS: Thirty-two advanced HCC patients were given sorafenib from July 2009 to July 2012, and we statistically analyzed the relevant predictive factors of the long-term survival. The institutional review board of Kumamoto University Hospital approved this study (Approval number 1038)...

BACKGROUND: Emerging studies suggest that enhanced glycolysis accompanies inflammatory responses. Virtually nothing is known about the relevance of glycolysis in allergic asthma. OBJECTIVES: Here we sought to determine if glycolysis is altered in allergic asthma and to address its importance in the pathogenesis of allergic asthma. METHODS: We examined alterations in glycolysis in sputum samples from asthmatics and primary human nasal cells, and used murine models of allergic asthma as well as primary mouse tracheal epithelial cells to evaluate the relevance of glycolysis...

Purpose: To explore the short-term efficacy and safety of CT-guided microwave ablation (MWA) for treating liver tumors near the diaphragm. Results: The complete response (CR) rate for CT-guided MWA through the lung was 94.7% (124/131). The incomplete response (ICR) rate was 5.3% (7/131), of which 6 patients with ICRs achieved CRs after MWA. The CR rate for Group I was higher than Group II (99.0% vs. 80.0%, P=0.001). The mean follow-up time was 11.2 ±7.50 months...

Although thoracic ablative therapies are generally safe procedures, fatal complications can occur. Bevacizumab is a standard-of-care treatment along with chemotherapy for metastatic colorectal cancer. Although uncommon, unpredictable serious adverse events can occur secondary to bevacizumab. We report a case of fatal intrapulmonary haemorrhage as a result of arteriopulmonary fistula in a patient after microwave ablation of pulmonary colorectal cancer metastasis while on bevacizumab. Antiangiogenetic properties of bevacizumab are associated with delayed wound healing, which might have been a crucial factor in the development of arteriopulmonary fistula and haemorrhage...

Survival of all non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients is disappointing, with a 5-year survival of 18%. Staging NSCLC patients is crucial because it determines the choice of treatment and prognosis. Clinical staging is a complex process that comes with many challenges and with low accuracy between the clinical and pathological stage. Treatment modalities for stage I-III NSCLC consist of surgical resection, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. This review describes the current evidence on staging and the implications on adjuvant chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Alveolar macrophages are sentinels of the airways that must exhibit immune restraint to innocuous antigens but elicit a robust inflammatory response to pathogenic threats. How distinction between these dichotomous functions is controlled is poorly defined.Neutrophils are the first responders to infection, and we hypothesised that they may free alveolar macrophages from their hyporesponsive state, promoting their activation. Activation of the inflammasome and interleukin (IL)-1β release is a key early inflammatory event that must be tightly regulated...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Solamargine, one natural photochemical component from traditional plants, has been shown to have anti-cancers properties. We previously showed that solamargine inhibited the growth of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells through suppression of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) receptor EP4 gene and regulation of downstream signaling pathways. However, the detailed mechanism underlying this, especially in combination of metformin, a known AMPK activator, still remained to be determined...

REVIEW
Anne Charloux, Elisabeth Quoix
Anatomical segmentectomy has been developed to offer better pulmonary function preservation than lobectomy, in stage IA lung cancer. Despite the retrospective nature of most of the studies and the lack of randomised studies, a substantial body of literature today allows us to evaluate to what extent lung function decreases after segmentectomy and whether segmentectomy offers a real functional benefit over lobectomy. From the available series, it emerges that the mean decrease in forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) is low, ranging from -9% to -24% of the initial value within 2 months and -3 to -13% 12 months after segmentectomy...

BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) combined with chemotherapy has a certain short-term therapeutic effect for the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but whether it can improve the long-term survival rate of patients is still controversy. This study retrospectively analyzed the difference of long-term efficacy between RFA combined with chemotherapy and chemotherapy alone in the treatment of patients with advanced NSCLC. METHODS: A total of 77 patients with stage IIIb and stage IV NSCLC who underwent radiofrequency ablation and chemotherapy in the Department of Thoracic Surgery, Xuanwu Hospital, Capital University of Medical Sciences from September 2009 to December 2015 were enrolled as the treatment group...

DHHC-type protein acyltransferases may regulate the localization, stability and/or activity of their substrates. In this study, we show that the protein palmitoyltransferase DHHC3 is upregulated in malignant and metastatic human breast cancer. Elevated expression of DHHC3 correlated with diminished patient survival in breast cancer and six other human cancer types. ZDHHC3 ablation in human MDA-MB-231 mammary tumor cell xenografts reduced the sizes of both the primary tumor and metastatic lung colonies. Gene array data and fluorescence dye assays documented increased oxidative stress and senescence in ZDHHC3-ablated cells...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To examine the relationship between radiation dose and tumor control in limited stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We searched a database of 1552 patients who received radiation therapy for non-metastatic NSCLC between 2000 and 2016. The primary endpoint was freedom from in-field failure. RESULTS: Increasing BED correlated with decreasing estimated gross tumor volume-planning target volume expansion, and on multivariable analysis increasing BED was associated with an increased chance of field-edge failures (hazard ratio [HR] 1...

Senescent cells withdraw from the cell cycle and do not proliferate. The prevalence of senescent compared to normally functioning parenchymal cells increases with age, impairing tissue and organ homeostasis. A contentious principle governing this process has been the redox theory of aging. We linked matricellular protein thrombospondin 1 (TSP1) and its receptor CD47 to the activation of NADPH oxidase 1 (Nox1), but not of the other closely related Nox isoforms, and associated oxidative stress, and to senescence in human cells and aged tissue...
