Application of Detecting Circulating Tumor Cells in the Accurate Treatment of Early Stage Lung Adenocarcinoma

2016-11-02 07:53:22 | BioPortfolio


In 2015-2016, 224,390 cases were newly diagnosed with lung cancer in USA. Of all the cases, 83% are non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Currently, the 5-year survival rate of NSCLC patients is 21%, and more than 25% of early stage NSCLC patients, who have undergone surgical treatment, will have a relapse or progression.

Circulating tumor cells (CTCs), which shed from the primary tumor into the vasculature or lymphatics, can be regarded as a new prognostic factors of metastatic process. Thus far, CTCs-detection technologies can be divided into epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM)-based detection methods, e.g., the widely used CellSearch® and Adnatest®,and EpCAM-independent detection methods, e.g., ISET® and ScreenCell®. Herein, the investigators used a newly established approach, i.e., CanPatrolTM to detect CTCs in early stage lung Adenocarcinoma cases.

The investigator aim to explore whether CTCs detection prior to surgery can be contributive to the early diagnosis, or may help to predict the prognosis and guide the treatment strategy of early stage lung Adenocarcinoma.

Is Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Lobectomy a Clinical Alternative for Surgically Resectable Pathologic N2 NSCLC Patients

The study was designed to compare the safety and effectiveness of vedio-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy with open lobectomy for patients with surgically resectable pathologic N2 non-small...

Retrospective Multi-Center Study to Compare Perioperative Outcomes for Robotic-assisted Lobectomy With Those Associated With VATS and Open Lobectomy for Lung Cancer

The main objective of this study is to compare perioperative outcomes for robotic-assisted lobectomy with those associated with VATS and open lobectomy for lung cancer

Robotic Lobectomy vs. Thoracoscopic Lobectomy for Early Stage Lung Cancer

Robotic lobectomy has been shown, on the basis of non-randomized studies, to have superior outcomes to thoracotomy and Thoracoscopic lobectomy. Despite the potential benefits of robotic te...

Effects of Nonintubated Thoracoscopic Lobectomy on Lung Protection

A novel nonintubated thoracoscopic technique is promising to enhance recovery after thoracic surgery. However, the effects of nonintubated technique on specific organ protection in not cle...

VATS Lobectomy for Clinical Stage IB or II Lung Cancer

To examine the feasibility of VATS lobectomy for clinical stage IB or II non-small cell lung cancer. Success is defined as VATS lobectomy without conversion. If success rate over 90%, VATS...

Predicting Lung Function Following Lobectomy: A New Method to Adjust for Inherent Selection Bias.

Predictions that overestimate post-lobectomy lung function are more likely than underestimates to lead to lobectomy. Studies of post-lobectomy lung function have included only surgical patients, so ov...

Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Lobectomy for Lung Cancer.

The use of video assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy has become a mainstay of modern day thoracic oncology practice and the technique of choice for resection of early stage lung cancers at...

Defining Proficiency for Society of Thoracic Surgeons Participants Performing Thoracoscopic Lobectomy.

Parameters defining attainment and maintenance of proficiency in thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy remain unknown. To address this knowledge gap, we investigated the institutional performance curve for V...

Dissection of Incomplete Fissure Using Electrocautery Is a Safe and Acceptable Method for Thoracoscopic Right Upper Lobectomy.

Unclassifiable Infectious Complications after Lobectomy for Cancer: Etiology, Risks, and Outcomes.

 Although infectious complications occur occasionally after lung lobectomy, some of them are overlooked if the pathogen or origin is unidentifiable.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The excision of lung tissue including partial or total lung lobectomy.

A neurosurgical procedure that removes the anterior TEMPORAL LOBE including the medial temporal structures of CEREBRAL CORTEX; AMYGDALA; HIPPOCAMPUS; and the adjacent PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS. This procedure is generally used for the treatment of intractable temporal epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TEMPORAL LOBE).

A competitive serotonin type 3 receptor antagonist. It is effective in the treatment of nausea and vomiting caused by cytotoxic chemotherapy drugs, including cisplatin, and has reported anxiolytic and neuroleptic properties.

Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.

An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
