A number of developments have altered the treatment paradigm for metastatic non-small cell, non-squamous lung cancer. These include increasing knowledge of molecular signal pathways, as well as the ou...
From the aspect of the contemporary pathologic diagnostics of lung cancer the tissue obtained is a key issue since small biopsies and cytology still play a major role. In the non-small cell lung cance...
Lung cancer, which can be divided into two major clinical-pathological categories, small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer, is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. MicroR...
Growing evidence indicates that miR-200c is involved in carcinogenesis and tumor progression in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, its precise biological role remains largely elusive.
The standard treatment for non-small cell lung cancer, stage IV or IIIB malignant pleural effusion is chemotherapy. The decision to use a regimen is currently determined by toxicity or by ...
The main purpose of this study of pemetrexed combined with cisplatin used as neoadjuvant chemotherapy (2 or 3 cycles) in patients with operable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is to loo...
The primary aim of the study is to identify a predictive molecular signature for response to chemotherapy, according to WHO criteria, in patients with non-small cell lung cancer by studyin...
Aim of the present retrospective study is to evaluate molecular factors of primary resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors in metastatic non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. We as...
The endpoint is to investigate if the addition of low molecular heparin - enoxaparin, will result in a significant increase of overall survival in patients with small cell lung cancer, rec...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
