This is a randomised, open-label, phase IIb trial of afatinib to compare to gefitinib in first-line treatment setting with patients who are having epidermal growth factor receptor mutation...
Solid subtype, micropapillary subtype, vascular involvement, pleural involvement and low differentiation are high risk factors of post-operative recurrence for early-stage lung adenocarcin...
The investigators are doing this research to see if they can use small tissue samples or fluid to develop a test that will determine if the tissue samples are related or not related to eac...
This is a prospective, open-label, single arm, non-interventional study will inv estigate the effectiveness of Avastin monotherapy for patients with lung adenoca rcinoma who previously rec...
This is a phase II, prospective, single arm, non comparative study with crizotinib combined with bevacizumab in treatment-naive lung adenocarcinoma cancer patients with ALK translocation o...
A 74-year-old man with multiple soft tissue lesions in the lung, which were suspected to be metastatic neoplasms, underwent F-FDG PET/CT scan to detect primary malignancy. The images demonstrated that...
Recent evidence indicates that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a critical role in the regulating cellular processes such as differentiation, proliferation, metastasis and apoptosis. These lncRNAs a...
Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD), mainly originated in lung glandular cells, is the most frequent pathological type of lung cancer and the 5-year survival rate of LUAD patients is still very low. Therefore,...
Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms commonly involving visceral or parietal pleura. We present the first report of tumor-to-tumor metastasis involving a pulmonary adenocarcin...
Lung cancer is highly prevalent and has an especially poor prognosis. Thus, new diagnostic and therapeutic targets are necessary. Two potential targets are somatostatin receptors (SST), which are over...
A lesion with cytological characteristics associated with invasive adenocarcinoma but the tumor cells are confined to the GLANDULAR EPITHELIAL CELLS of origin. Adenocarcinoma in situ of the CERVIX and the LUNG are the most common.
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.
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.
A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.
