RATIONALE: Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are known to have greater efficacy in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, about 10% of EGFR wild-type (wt) patients respond to TKIs. PATIENT CONCERNS: Several strategies to increase the efficacy of TKIs in wt NSCLC are the subjects of ongoing investigations. One of them is combining EGFR TKI with intercalated chemotherapy. DIAGNOSES: We describe a patient with EGFR wt NSCLC, who was found with ovarian and lung metastasis, was treated with pemetrexed and intercalated icotinib...

Accumulating papers have demonstrated that microRNAs play an important role in the progression of lung cancer, mainly as oncogenic and tumor suppressive. Therefore, microRNAs may influence the survival of lung cancer patients. In this meta-analysis, we evaluated the role of microRNAs in affecting the overall survival in nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, which may provide valuable information for the treatment of nonsmall cell lung cancer. We used keywords to retrieve literatures from online databases PUBMED, EMBASE and Web of Science and included 12 studies into our investigation according to pre-set criteria...

Epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) are approved for second-line treatment of EGFR wild-type (EGFR-wt) nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, results from randomised trials performed to compare EGFR-TKIs with chemotherapy in this population did not show any survival benefit. In the era of immunotherapy, many drugs are approved for second-line treatment of EGFR-wt NSCLC and there is a need to reassess the role of EGFR-TKIs in this setting.The Biomarkers France study is a large nationwide cohort of NSCLC patients tested for EGFR mutations...

Clinical reports of symptomatic intraocular metastasis as the initial presentation of lung cancer are rare. We report the case of a 49-year-old female patient who presented with loss of vision due to choroidal metastases as the initial manifestation of her disseminated lung cancer. This particular patient was referred to us from ophthalmology department as a case of choroidal metastases from unknown primary. Detailed evaluation at our department helped detect the primary to be a nonsmall cell carcinoma of the right lung, which had multiple distant metastases...

The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and receptor is a therapeutic target because of the importance of this pathway in carcinogenesis. This pathway regulates and promotes angiogenesis as well as increases endothelial cell proliferation, permeability, and cancer survival. Ramucirumab is a new fully human monoclonal antibody that targets the VEGF receptor-2, an important key receptor implicated in angiogenesis. Ramucirumab has been approved for the treatment of second-line advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in combination with the chemotherapy agent docetaxel...

Lung cancer is the most common solid tumor around the world. It has been reported that upregulation of long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) plasmacytoma variant translocation 1 (lncRNA-PVT1) is closely associated with tumor metastasis. However, the function and underlying molecular mechanism of lncRNA-PVT1 in nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) invasion remain unknown. In this study, we found that overexpression of lncRNA-PVT1 promoted the invasive ability of NSCLC cells, whereas silence of lncRNA-PVT1 suppressed cell invasion...

According to the latest data, lung cancer is one of the most common cancer worldwide, men contributing nearly 21.2% and women 8.6% of all diagnosed cancers. Late detection of tumour drastically reduces the chance for a cure. Thus, it is important to search for candidate biomarkers for screening of early stage nonsmall cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Tumour suppressor genes, DLEC1, TUSC4 and MLH1, localized on 3p21 are recognized to play a role in NSCLC carcinogenesis. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between the DLEC1, TUSC4 and MLH1 mRNA expression, and clinical features of NSCLC patients, tobacco addiction, and tumour histopathological characteristics...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer is associated with an oxidant-antioxidant imbalance that is implicated in tumor progression. However, the association of this imbalance on disease burden and treatment response is unclear. The effect of chemotherapy on oxidative stress, antioxidant status, and nutritional profile in patients with advanced nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) was prospectively evaluated. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Patients with confirmed cytological/histological diagnosis of NSCLC were recruited...

The pathological and molecular classification of lung cancer has become substantially more complex over the past decade. For diagnostic purposes on small samples, additional stains are frequently required to distinguish between squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. Subsequently, for advanced nonsquamous cell nonsmall cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) patients, predictive analyses on epidermal growth factor receptor, anaplastic lymphoma kinase and ROS1 are required. In NSCLCs negative for these biomarkers, programmed death ligand-1 immunohistochemistry is performed...

BACKGROUND: A notable gap in the evidence base for outpatient palliative care (PC) for cancer is that most trials were conducted in specialized oncology or academic centers with limited translation and further evaluation in "real-world" settings. Health systems are desperate for guidance regarding the most effective and sustainable PC service models. OBJECTIVE: Describe the study protocol to evaluate the dissemination of a previously tested nurse-led PC intervention (PCI) for patients with lung cancer and their family caregiver in community-based settings, lessons learned in adapting and implementing the PCI, and implications for future dissemination-translational efforts Design: Two-group, prospective sequential, quasi-experimental design with Phase 1 (Usual care) followed by Phase 2 (Intervention) setting/subjects...

A nanocarrier system of d-a-tocopheryl polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate (TPGS)-functionalized polydopamine-coated mesoporous silica nanoparticles (NPs) is developed for sustainable and pH-responsive delivery of doxorubicin (DOX) as a model drug for the treatment of drug-resistant nonsmall cell lung cancer. Such nanoparticles are of desired particle size, drug loading, and drug release profile. The surface morphology, surface charge, and surface chemical properties are also successfully characterized by a series of techniques such as transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method, thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)...
