OBJECTIVE: False-negative (FN) uptake of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) can be divided into those cases related to technological limitations of positron emission tomography (PET) and those related to inherent properties of neoplasms. Our goal was to clarify possible factors causing FN PET results in patients with solid-type pulmonary adenocarcinomas (PAs). METHODS: From January 2007 to December 2014, of the 255 patients with p-stage-1 non-small-cell lung cancer observed and treated (surgically) in our institution, we retrospectively reviewed the PET/computed tomography (CT) records, the clinical information, the preoperative thin-section CT images, and the pathological features [classified by the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer/American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society (IASLC/ATS/ERS) subtyping criteria] of 94 consecutive solid-type p-stage-1 PAs...

The potential clinical impact of KRAS and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations has been investigated in lung adenocarcinomas; however, their prognostic value remains controversial. In our study, we sought to investigate the prognostic significance of driver mutations using a large cohort of early-stage lung adenocarcinomas. We reviewed patients with pathologic early-stage, lymph node-negative, solitary lung adenocarcinoma who had undergone surgical resection (1995 to 2005; stage I/II=463/19). Tumors were classified according to the IASLC/ATS/ERS classification and genotyped by Sequenom MassARRAY system and polymerase chain reaction-based assays...

OBJECTIVES: Lung adenocarcinomas are a heterogeneous set of diseases with distinct genetic and histologic characteristics. Besides the discovery of oncogenic mutations and introduction of the histologic classifications (2011 International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer/American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society and 2015 WHO), increasing evidence has linked this intertumor heterogeneity to the lung lineage-specific pathways and lineage genes. Therefore, in this study, we assessed the gene expression of identified lung lineage genes to study their role in distinguishing lung adenocarcinoma diversities...

In comparison with other tumor entities there is no common generally accepted grading system for lung cancer with clearly defined criteria and clinical relevance. In the recent fourth edition of the World Health Organization (WHO) classification from 2015 of tumors of the lungs, pleura, thymus and heart, there is no generally applicable grading for pulmonary adenocarcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas or rarer forms of carcinoma. Since the new IASLC/ATS/ERS classification of adenocarcinomas published in 2011, 5 different subtypes with significantly different prognosis are proposed...

BACKGROUND: The solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) is a common radiologic abnormality on chest x-rays or computed tomography (CT) scans of the lungs. The differential diagnosis of SPNs is particularly wide as it includes a multitude of benign as well as malignant entities. Nodule location within the lungs has been proposed as a predictive feature in the literature. This study aims at illustrating the distribution within the lungs of a large current series of consecutive SPNs according to their histological subtype, which was definitely proved at core biopsy...

We sought to investigate the frequency of mutations in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and Kirsten-RAS (KRAS) by each pathological subtype for patients with resected pulmonary adenocarcinoma as defined by the IASLC/ATS/ERS classification. Histological examination determined the predominant subtype according to the IASLC/ATS/ERS classification. EGFR and KRAS mutations were determined by high-resolution melting and Sanger sequencing. Clinical data were collected from medical records and clinicians. The 178 consecutive patients consisted of 48% males, median age 68 years (range 20-87) and smoking history 78%...

Adenocarcinoma is the most common histological type of lung carcinoma. Recently the histologic classification of adenocarcinomas in the lung was modified to better reflect biologic properties and prognosis. We reviewed the histology of all primary lung adenocarcinomas operated on in Iceland during a 20-year period and assessed the impact of histology on survival. This nationwide study included 285 patients (mean age 67 years, 57% female), who underwent resection in Iceland from 1991 to 2010. Tumors were reclassified according to the current IASLC/ATS/ERS classification system...
