The patients from 12 centers were included into the study. pN2 patients received PORT, pN1 patients did not. PORT was 3D-planned and consisted in 54-56 Gy in 27-28 fractions. One month after surgery, all patients completed EORTC QLQ C-30 questionnaires and had pulmonary function tests (PFT); cardiopulmonary symptoms were assessed by modified LENT-SOM score. Two years after, all patients free of disease repeated the same examinations. Changes in QLQ, LENT-SOM score and the results of PFT were compared for patients receiving and not PORT.

This is a Phase I study of the ALK/FAK/Pyk2 inhibitor CT-707 in patients with ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer. The purpose of the study is to determine the MTD/RP2D of CT-707 and ...
This trial will evaluate two separate groups of patients with stage IIIB/IV non-small cell lung cancer. The objective of Group 1 is to investigate an FDA-approved drug in stage IIIB/IV non...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of FR901228 in t...
The trial was designed to compare the effectiveness of radical resections of lung cancer plus adjuvant chemotherapies and perioperative chemotherapies in the patients with N2 non-small cel...
RATIONALE: Captopril is a drug that may be able to decrease side effects caused by radiation therapy, and may improve the quality of life of patients with non-small cell lung cancer or lim...
In this issue of Cancer Cell, Hellmann et al. describe in two clinical trials the importance of tumor mutational burden as an independent predictive marker for outcomes with combination nivolumab plu...
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...
Recently it has been shown that radiomic features of computed tomography (CT) have prognostic information in stage I-III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. We aim to validate this prognostic...
Complete resection of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) offers the potential for cure after surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy. Patients may not benefit and may experience severe toxicity. There are n...
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been identified to play a crucial regulatory role in the development and progression of malignant tumors, including lung cancer. However, the function of miR-550a-3p on the pro...
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
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 quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
