A look at the following clinical trial: Phase I/II Study of Fractionated Stereotactic Radiotherapy for Medically Inoperable Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) or Metastatic Lung Tumours
Could the Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio be a Poor Prognostic Factor for Non Small Cell Lung Cancers? Lung cancer;neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio;prognostic factors;C reactive protein; Background: Although many prognostic factors have been identified for lung cancers, new ones are needed to determine the course of the disease. Recently, a high neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) prior to surgery or treatment has been shown to be an indicator of prognosis for cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the value of NLR as a prognostic factor and the correlation between NLR and other probable clinical prognostic factors in non small cell lung cancer patients prior to treatment. Materials and Methods: Data of patients who were diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer in our institution were retrospectively reviewed. Demographic and clinicopathologic characteristics were recorded. NLR was calculated before the application of any treatment. Results: A total of 299 patients, 270 (90%) males and 29 (10
Since this squamous cell lung cancer is being considered as destructive neoplasm in lungs, additional care is paid towards incorporating the effective supportive therapy in the regular anti cancerous therapy, involving multi drug combinations. The supportive therapy may include usage of suitable corticosteroid drugs like prednisolone in a routine form and it is noteworthy to mention that in some patients, a repository form of this corticosteroid may also be used to fulfill the need of constant delivery.. Surgery is also being considered as therapy in cases of squamous cell lung cancer. But, if the spread of this is over a wide area, it becomes impossible.. The squamous cell lung cancer in many patients tends to spread to other tissues including kidney or bone. Suppose, if it spreads to bones, most of the times, mandible or skull may get affected and in such cases increased density with occurrence of periosteal new bones may be noticed.. Squamous cell lung cancer at times need confirmation from ...
Non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) constitutes the majority of all lung‑cancer cases. Aquaporin 5 (AQP5) may be involved in NSCLC by promoting lung‑cancer initiation and progression. The present study aimed to determine the role of AQP5 in migration and angiogenesis using NSCLC cells and HUVECs. AQPs 1, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 9 were screened in the NSCLC cell line H1299, and the present results showed that AQP5 mRNA was upregulated compared with the other AQP genes. At the protein level, AQP5 was significantly increased in H1299 cells compared with 16HBE cells. AQP5 knockdown in H1299 cells significantly decreased cell migration compared with untransfected cells, as demonstrated by both Transwell and wound closure assays. The present study further investigated H1299 ability to promote HUVEC vascularisation. The supernatants of both transfected and untransfected H1299 cells were used as conditioned medium for HUVECs, and tube formation was measured. The supernatant of AQP5‑downregulated cells ...

This phase I trial studies the best dose of radiation therapy in treating patients with locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer that cannot be removed by surgery. Radiation therapy uses high energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Specialized radiation therapy, such as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. SBRT has been shown to provide excellent results when used in early stage lung cancer, but has not yet been applied to patients with more advanced disease ...
Since 2000, the WHPP Early Lung Cancer Detection (ELCD) Program has provided low-dose chest CT scans to U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) workers, with the primary purpose of detecting lung cancers early. The WHPP ELCD Program serves DOE workers from nine sites in the DOE complex: Idaho National Laboratory (INL); the K-25, Paducah and Portsmouth gaseous diffusion plants (GDPs); the Mound and Fernald closure sites; the Nevada National Security Site (formerly the Nevada Test Site); Oak Ridge National Laboratory; and Y-12. As of September 2015, over 13,000 DOE workers have received low-dose screening CT scans through the ELCD Program; 136 lung cancers have been detected, with the majority (71%) found in early stages.. WHPP participants with an elevated risk of lung cancer based on age, smoking and work history are currently offered annual screening, as well as interim follow-up CT scans, if needed.. A low-dose screening CT scan of the chest uses much less radiation than a standard, full-dose CT scan ...
An increasing number of chromosomal aberrations is being identified in solid tumors providing novel biomarkers for various types of cancer and new insights into the mechanisms of carcinogenesis. We applied next generation sequencing technique to analyze the transcriptome of the non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cell line H2228 and discovered a fusion transcript composed of multiple exons of ALK (anaplastic lymphoma receptor tyrosine kinase) and PTPN3 (protein tyrosine phosphatase, nonreceptor Type 3). Detailed analysis of the genomic structure revealed that a portion of genomic region encompassing Exons 10 and 11 of ALK has been translocated into the intronic region between Exons 2 and 3 of PTPN3. The key net result appears to be the null mutation of one allele of PTPN3, a gene with tumor suppressor activity. Consistently, ectopic expression of PTPN3 in NSCLC cell lines led to inhibition of colony formation. Our study confirms the utility of next generation sequencing as a tool for the ...
Special Report Temporal Trends in Demographics and Overall Survival of Non Small-Cell Lung Cancer Patients at Moffitt Cancer Center From 1986 to 2008 Matthew B. Schabath, PhD, Zachary J. Thompson, PhD,
Somatic mutations in the tyrosine kinase domain of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) have recently been described in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who achieve radiographic regressions to the EGFR inhibitor gefitinib. One of these mutations, L858R (Leu→Arg), is also found in NSCLC cell line H3255, which is very sensitive to gefitinib treatment. We characterized nine NSCLC cell lines (three isolated from patients with bronchioloalveolar carcinoma and six isolated from patients with adenocarcinoma) for their in vitro sensitivity to gefitinib. Of these, only H3255 (EGFRL858R) and H1666 (EGFRWT) are sensitive to gefitinib with IC50 values of 40 nmol/L and 2 μmol/L, respectively. We examined the effects of gefitinib on H3255 and cell lines containing wild-type EGFR that are either sensitive (H1666) or resistant (A549 and H441) to gefitinib exposure in vitro. Gefitinib treatment (1 μmol/L) leads to significant apoptosis accompanied by increased poly(ADP-ribose) ...

Between 1990 and 2011, almost 720,000 people were diagnosed with lung cancer. During this time, the number of male lung cancer diagnoses declined, whereas the number of female lung cancer diagnoses increased. Lung cancer incidence increases sharply after middle age. More than 75% of lung cancers are diagnosed in people over the age of 65. The difference in the trends of lung cancer incidence among men and women is even more pronounced when age is taken into account. The sharp decrease in the incidence of male lung cancer over the past two decades reflects the decline in smoking prevalence among men. However, due to the rise in women who took up smoking after World War II, the incidence among women continues to increase. The difference in smoking prevalence between men and women has given rise to a dramatic change in the male to female lung cancer incidence ratio from 3:1 in 1990 to 3:2 in 2011.. ...
For patients with Stage III non-small cell lung cancer, prophylactic (preventive) radiation therapy to the brain reduces the risk of brain metastases but carries a risk of memory problems and doesnt appear to improve overall survival. These results were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.. Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for approximately 85% of all lung cancers.. One of the sites to which NSCLC can spread (metastasize) is the brain. Brain metastases can have a profound effect on survival and quality of life.. Prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) refers to the administration of radiation to the brain before brain metastases become apparent. The goal of PCI is the prevention of brain metastases. Previous studies have suggested that PCI can reduce the occurrence of brain metastases, but PCI has not become a part of routine NSCLC care because of concern about side effects and lack of evidence that ...
Objective: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Disease stage still remains the best prognostic factor for patients with localized non-small cell lung cancer. The TNM staging system, however, does not address the heterogeneity of this disease. Sub-classification and identification of distinct prognostic sub-groups within each stage may allow the optimization of clinical trial design and potentially improve outcome. This is a retrospective pilot study, in which we attempt to identify genomic biomarkers predictive of recurrence in stage I lung cancer by analysing copy number (CN) data obtained by next-generation sequencing. Materials and Methods: Ninety eight patients with stage I NSCLC, who underwent elective radical surgery were identified from a tissue bank of 323 tumour samples. Their demographic and surgical data, including their recurrence status were collected and an extensive database compiled. The cases were split into two cohorts depending on their ...

Lung cancer remains the major cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) account for at least 80% of all lung tumors and about 30% of them present with unresectable locally advanced disease at diagnosis (stage IIIA-IIIB) [1]. Until the mid 1980s standard treatment of patients with inoperable locally advanced NSCLC consisted of radiotherapy (RT) alone with a median survival time of 10 months[1]. From data about lung cancer population diagnosed in the second half of 1990s, overall survival at one and two years was estimated of 36% and 12% respectively[2].. Rates at 2 and 5 years of 15% and 5% respectively [3]. In attempts to improve the survival in these patients, chemotherapy was added to external beam irradiation. Several trials have been positive in favour of combined therapy [4-6]. More recently, other clinical trials have shown that, in selected patients (good performance status, age ≤ 75 years and minimal weight loss) concomitant platinum-based ...
Inactivation of the p16 and ESR1 tumor suppressor genes by promoter lesion methylation has been reported in many tumor types, including lung cancer.

A summary of the article is shown below:. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) function as key regulators of numerous types of cancers. miRNA (miR)‑421 expression is dysregulated in a variety of tumors; however, its role in non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains unclear. In the present study, the role and molecular mechanism of miR‑421 in NSCLC was investigated. In this study, miRNA (miR)‑421 was upregulated in NSCLC tissues and cell lines used the reverse transcriptase quantitative polymerase chain reaction. Ectopic expression of miR‑421 significantly promoted cell proliferation in vitro and tumor growth in vivo by promoting cell cycle progression via CCK-8, colony formation, EdU assay, xenograft model and cell cycle assay. In addition, miR‑421 inhibited NSCLC cell apoptosis by flow cytometry apoptosis assay, as evidenced by anti‑apoptosis gene Bcl‑2 and apoptosis gene cleaved caspase‑3 and cleaved PARP using western blot assay. Furthermore, miR‑421 promoted cell migration and invasion ...
CUL4A has been proposed as oncogene in several types of human cancer, but its clinical significance and functional role in human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remain unclear. Expression level of CUL4A was examined by RT-PCR and Western blot. Forced expression of CUL4A was mediated by retroviruses, and CUL4A silencing by shRNAs expressing lentiviruses. Growth capacity of lung cancer cells was measured by MTT in vitro and tumorigenesis in vivo, respectively. We found that CUL4A was highly expressed in human lung cancer tissues and lung cancer cell lines, and this elevated expression positively correlated with disease progression and prognosis. Overexpression of CUL4A in human lung cancer cell lines increased cell proliferation, inhibited apoptosis, and subsequently conferred resistance to chemotherapy. On other hand, silencing CUL4A expression in NSCLC cells reduced proliferation, promoted apoptosis and resulted in tumor growth inhibition in cancer xenograft model. Mechanistically, we ...

PC-9 CDDP demonstrated 28-fold resistance to cisplatin, with cross resistance to other chemotherapeutic drugs including chlorambucil (×6.3), melphalan (×3.7) and 3-[(4-amino-2-methyl-5-pyrimidinyl)]methyl-1-(2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea (ACNU) (×3.9). There was no expression of mdr-1 mRNA in either wild-type or resistant cells. The mRNA and protein levels of glutathione S-transferase (GST) π were similar in the two lines. A GST-μ isozyme was present in equal amounts and the activities of ...
