The purpose of this study is to determine whether stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) combined with recombined human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor(rhGM-CSF) and Thymosin Alpha 1 is safe, effective in the treatment of stage IV NSCLC patients who failed in second-line chemotherapy.
Metastasis lesion of stage IV NSCLC will be treated with a SBRT of 50Gy/4-10F from day 1 to day 14 in one cycle. Subcutaneous injection of human recombined granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (125ug/m² per day) will be executed from day 1 to day 14 in this cycle. Another metastasis lesion will be treated likewise concurrently with rhGM-CSF in a consecutive cycle.Thymosin Alpha 1(1.6mg Biw) will be Subcutaneous injection from the fist week to the 12th weeks, Efficacy evaluation, especially abscopal effect evaluation, will be conducted at the end of therapy and every month after that. Adverse events will be recorded according to NCI-CTC version 4.03.

The aim of this study is to characterize the genetic and cellular immunological parameters of metastatic digestive cancer patients having short and long responses to chemotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to use SBRT in patients with early stage lung cancer and find out what effects (good and bad) SBRT has on their cancer. This research is being done because SBR...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate local disease control after 2 years in patients with non-metastatic, non-operated non-small-cell lung cancer treated by radiotherapy. Eligible pat...
To tested if the adding of consolidative SBRT to TKI in EGFR mutated patients with less than or equal to 5 metastatic sites (primary + 5) will improve progression free survival (PFS) compa...
This protocol is a single arm phase II multi-center trial evaluating the efficacy of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) in patients with oligometastatic non-small cell lung cancer ...
Many factors, such as environmental, microbial and endogenous stress, antigen localization, can trigger the immunological events that affect the ending of the diverse spectrum of ocular disorders. Sig...
Isolated nodal failure (INF) without synchronous local or distant failure is an uncommon occurrence following SBRT for lung cancer. Here we review the natural history and patterns of failure after pos...
Despite advances in prevention and treatment of heart transplant rejection, development of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) remains the leading factor limiting long-term survival of the graft. Car...
Lung cancer has been transformed from a rare disease into a global problem and public health issue. The etiologic factors of lung cancer become more complex along with industrialization, urbanization,...
For local recurrence of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has become increasingly popular. Many patients with recurrent NSCLC are unable to receive high-do...
The interfaces between T-CELLS and ANTIGEN-PRESENTING CELLS. Supramolecular organization of proteins takes place at these synapses involving various types of immune cells. Immunological synapses can have several functions including LYMPHOCYTE ACTIVATION; enhancing, balancing, or terminating signaling; or directing cytokine secretion.
An oral chrysotherapeutic agent for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Its exact mechanism of action is unknown, but it is believed to act via immunological mechanisms and alteration of lysosomal enzyme activity. Its efficacy is slightly less than that of injected gold salts, but it is better tolerated, and side effects which occur are potentially less serious.
Thymosin. A family of heat-stable, polypeptide hormones secreted by the thymus gland. Their biological activities include lymphocytopoiesis, restoration of immunological competence and enhancement of expression of T-cell characteristics and function. They have therapeutic potential in patients having primary or secondary immunodeficiency diseases, cancer or diseases related to aging.
Administration of vaccines to stimulate the host's immune response. This includes any preparation intended for active immunological prophylaxis.
Structurally related forms of an enzyme. Each isoenzyme has the same mechanism and classification, but differs in its chemical, physical, or immunological characteristics.
