Pharmacogenomic Study Realized on "Non-small Cell Lung Carcinoma"

The purpose of this study is to correlate molecular genetic profile with response to chemotherapy in case of primary chemotherapy treatment for non-small cells lung carcinoma.

Use of [18]F-FDG on PET/CT as an Alternative Non-invasive Method for Staging of Lung Cancer

To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the 18Fluor-fluorodeoxyglucose ([18F]FDG) in the Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT) as compared to mediastinoscopy for staging...

An Exploratory Pharmacogenomic Study of Monotherapy Erbitux in Subjects With Metastatic Non Small Cell Lung Carcinoma

The purpose of this study is to predict responses to Erbitux as a single agent in patients with Non Small Cell Lung Cancer

Study Comparing Weekly Taxol and Carboplatin vs Standard Taxol and Carboplatin Regimen for Stage IIIB or IV Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer

Taxol and carboplatin are commonly used drugs for the treatment of stage IIIB or IV non small cell lung carcinoma. This study compares treatment with Taxol/carboplatin given every 3 weeks...

Hypercoagulable Parameters as Predictors of Thrombotic Events and Prognosis in Patients With Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma

The association between cancer and thrombosis is well known and the occurrence of thrombotic complications is commonly associated with poor prognosis. The aim os this study is to determine...

Associations between history of chronic lung disease and non-small cell lung carcinoma in Maryland: variations by sex and race.

Lung cancer is a multifactorial malignancy for which some risk factors, such as chronic lung diseases, their interactions with smoking, and how they differ by race and sex, are not fully understood. W...

Diagnostic Accuracy of Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology for Discrimination of Squamous Cell Carcinoma from Adenocarcinoma in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

To determine the accuracy with which morphology alone can distinguish adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma in non-small cell lung cancer.

Targeted Therapy With Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase Inhibitor (Alectinib) in Adolescent Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma: 18F-NaF PET/CT in Response Evaluation.

Primary lung adenocarcinoma is extremely rare in the pediatric age group. We report an 18-year-old man with non-small cell lung carcinoma stage IV with brain and bone metastatic. Lung biopsy showed ex...

Synchronous multiple non-small cell lung cancers in an allograft lung recipient.

We described a case report of synchronous non-small cell lung cancers arising in lung transplants after allograft. Immunosuppressive therapy of the recipient induced an accelerated growth rate of prim...

Somatostatin and CXCR4 expression patterns in adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the lung relative to small cell lung cancer.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

An anaplastic, highly malignant, and usually bronchogenic carcinoma composed of small ovoid cells with scanty neoplasm. It is characterized by a dominant, deeply basophilic nucleus, and absent or indistinct nucleoli. (From Stedman, 25th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1286-7)

A carcinoma discovered by Dr. Margaret R. Lewis of the Wistar Institute in 1951. This tumor originated spontaneously as a carcinoma of the lung of a C57BL mouse. The tumor does not appear to be grossly hemorrhagic and the majority of the tumor tissue is a semifirm homogeneous mass. (From Cancer Chemother Rep 2 1972 Nov;(3)1:325) It is also called 3LL and LLC and is used as a transplantable malignancy.
