In the present study we investigated the prognostic value of Circulating Tumour Cells (CTC) and their utility for therapy monitoring in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A total of 43 patients newly diagnosed with NSCLC were prospectively enrolled. Blood samples were obtained before the 1st, 2nd and 5th cycles of chemotherapy and analyzed using CellSearch(More)
Knowledge on the molecular mechanisms underlying metastasis colonization in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) remains incomplete. A complete overview integrating driver mutations, primary tumour heterogeneity and overt metastasis lacks the dynamic contribution of disseminating metastatic cells due to the inaccessibility to the molecular profiling of(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to assess the incidence of mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients in the Galician region of Spain and the clinical management and outcome of patients carrying EGFR mutations. PATIENTS AND METHODS All newly diagnosed advanced or metastatic NSCLC patients were(More)
The use of benzodiazepines could be a protective factor for community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in 60-year-old subjects We have read with interest the study of Obiora et al 1 regarding the effect of benzodiazepines (BZs) on the risk of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). It is concluded that the use of BZs was associated with an increased risk for CAP and(More)
