OBJECTIVES ROS1 proto-oncogene translocations define a new molecular subgroup in non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC) and are associated with a response to the MET/ALK inhibitor, crizotinib. These rearrangements are described in 0.9-1.7% NSCLC, in wild-type EGFR, KRAS and ALK ("triple negative") lung adenocarcinomas. Rapid and efficient identification of(More)
BACKGROUND The molecular profiling of patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) for known oncogenic drivers is recommended during routine care. Nationally, however, the feasibility and effects on outcomes of this policy are unknown. We aimed to assess the characteristics, molecular profiles, and clinical outcomes of patients who were(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this prospective, observational, multicenter study was to examine the epidemiology and management costs of bone metastatic disease (BMD) in patients with lung cancer. METHODS The analysis included all patients with BMD from lung cancer diagnosed between May 2006 and May 2007 in 40 centers. We analyzed their management and the(More)
PURPOSE Surgical resection plus adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy is considered standard care for stage II to III non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but its efficacy is limited, and it involves toxic risks, justifying patient-tailored treatment. Excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (ERCC1) was shown to predict cisplatin-based chemotherapy(More)
INTRODUCTION Few studies assessed, in real life, symptoms, specific interventions and factors influencing palliative care (PC) initiation for patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The objective of this study was to examine, in a prospective cohort of advanced NSCLC patients, PC use and factors associated with early (≤3 months after(More)
INTRODUCTION Less than 15% of all patients survive five years after a diagnosis of lung cancer. This poor prognosis is attributed to a lack of early detection. Among the methods of early diagnosis of bronchial cancer, autofluorescence bronchoscopy allows for the early identification of preinvasive bronchial lesions. The goal of this prospective study is to(More)
INTRODUCTION This study compared the efficacy of docetaxel alone vs. docetaxel plus cisplatin/carboplatin in resected NSCLC patients relapsing after preoperative, adjuvant, or perioperative platinum-based chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients were randomly assigned to receive docetaxel plus cisplatin/carboplatin (Arm A) or docetaxel alone (Arm B).(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant pleural mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer with poor prognosis, linked to occupational asbestos exposure. Vascular endothelial growth factor is a key mitogen for malignant pleural mesothelioma cells, therefore targeting of vascular endothelial growth factor might prove effective. We aimed to assess the effect on survival of(More)
Over the past decade, an increasing number of opportunistic mycelial fungal infections have been reported in immunocompromised patients. Presented here is the first reported case of Microascus trigonosporus pneumonia, which occurred in a 24-year-old-man with a history of allogenic bone marrow transplantation with graft-versus-host disease. Despite the(More)
All lung cancer patients with mutant epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) or rearranged EML4-ALK eventually develop acquired resistance to treatment. Rebiopsy may give insight into the resistance mechanisms and direct further lines of treatment. Here, we evaluate the potential interest and limitations of rebiopsy. Patients with mutant EGFR or rearranged(More)
