2019-02-18 22:49:17 | BioPortfolio


Tumor genomic clonal evolution assessed with liquid biopsy of stage IB,II and IIIA non-small cell lung cancer patients after getting radical resection. Plasma circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) analysis detects molecule residual disease and predicts recurrence in patients. The concordance of the relative abundance of mutations in plasma ctDNA with cancer recurrence.


In the study, 200 of stage IB,II and IIIA non-small cell lung cancer patients obtained radical resection will be recruited. All the patients will receive biopsy genotype assay and ctDNA liquid biopsy. The abundance of mutations of ctDNA was tracked at 4 time points, including:

1. st: 10 Days after patients received radical resection.

2. nd: When patients finished the chemotherapy or target drug delivery two cycles.

3. rd: 10 Days after patients finished the chemotherapy or target drug delivery four cycles.

4. th: When tumor recrudescence / 2 years after radical resection.

Tumor genomic clonal evolution was assessed by analyzing the relative abundance of mutations in plasma circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA).

Distinction and Potential Prediction of Lung Metastasis in Patients with Malignant Primary Osseous Spinal Neoplasms.

Retrospective analysis.

Non-small cell lung cancer with loss of expression of the SWI/SNF complex is associated with aggressive clinicopathological features, PD-L1-positive status, and high tumor mutation burden.

Loss of the chromatin remodeling SWItch/Sucrose Non-fermentable (SWI/SNF) complex is implicated in the pathogenesis of several types of neoplasms. The aim of this study was to examine the clinicopatho...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.

A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.

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.

Primary or metastatic neoplasms of the CEREBELLUM. Tumors in this location frequently present with ATAXIA or signs of INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION due to obstruction of the fourth ventricle. Common primary cerebellar tumors include fibrillary ASTROCYTOMA and cerebellar HEMANGIOBLASTOMA. The cerebellum is a relatively common site for tumor metastases from the lung, breast, and other distant organs. (From Okazaki & Scheithauer, Atlas of Neuropathology, 1988, p86 and p141)

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.
