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...
Lung adenocarcinoma is an important pathological type of lung cancer. Drug resistance is the main reason for failure of lung adenocarcinoma therapy. The purpose of this study is to explore the role of...
Growing evidence shows that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been wildly verified to modulate multiple tumorigenesis, especially lung adenocarcinoma. In present study, we aim to investigate the rol...
Podoplanin expression in cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) has been proposed as an unfavourable indicator in squamous cell carcinoma of the lung, but little is known about its clinical significance...
Chemoresistance has been a major obstacle to the effective treatment of lung cancer. Previously, we found that contactin-1 (CNTN-1) is related to cisplatin resistance in lung adenocarcinoma. Here, we ...
Women treated for breast cancer are at increased risk of developing pulmonary nodules which could represent new primary lung carcinomas or metastatic breast carcinoma. The FNA biopsy is frequently the...
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.
