Patients with micrometastasis alone, especially if only level I is involved, have a good prognosis with 85 and 77 per cent survival rates at ten and 14 years,(More)
In order to determine whether the alterations of immunoregulatory T cells described both in smokers and in patients with lung cancer occur in the deep lung as well as in peripheral blood, we analyzed T lymphocyte subpopulations in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and in the blood of 12 patients with untreated lung cancer and of 8 controls. The immunocompetent(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the diagnostic value of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) ferritin as a lung tumor marker by comparing serum and BALF ferritin concentrations in patients with peripheral lung cancer versus control subjects with benign lung disease, and to examine the theory of ferritin compartmentalization around the tumor area by comparing ferritin(More)
This report provides a detailed pathological review of 333 specimens analyzed for estrogen receptor protein (ERP) and correlates a series of morphological features with ERP results.
