The utility of sonographic features during endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration for lymph node staging in patients with lung cancer: a standard endobronchial ultrasound…
BACKGROUND Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive procedure with a high yield for lymph node staging of lung cancer. The aim of this… Expand
Induction of epithelial‐mesenchymal transition‐related genes by benzo[a]pyrene in lung cancer cells
It is believed that epithelial‐mesenchymal transition (EMT) occurs during the development and progression of cancer; however, the correlation between tobacco smoking and EMT remains to be elucidated.

Prognostic Factors After Pulmonary Metastasectomy for Colorectal Cancer and Rationale for Determining Surgical Indications: A Retrospective Analysis
Objective:We aimed to identify prognostic factors after pulmonary metastasectomy for colorectal cancer and propose the clinical application of them. Furthermore, we endeavored to provide a rationale… Expand
EML4-ALK Fusion Gene Assessment Using Metastatic Lymph Node Samples Obtained by Endobronchial Ultrasound-Guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration
Purpose: Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) fusion genes represent novel oncogenes for non–small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Several ALK inhibitors have been developed, and are now being evaluated in… Expand

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The incidence of primary adenoid cystic carcinoma of the lung is relatively rare and the optimal treatment strategy is still unclear. METHODS Sixteen adenoid cystic… Expand
Molecular Characterization of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease-Related Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Through Aberrant Methylation and Alterations of EGFR Signaling
BackgroundThe aim of this study was to evaluate the molecular influence of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) on the pathogenesis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).Materials and… Expand
Rapid on-site cytologic evaluation during endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration for nodal staging in patients with lung cancer.
BACKGROUND The utility of rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) during endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) for lymph node staging in lung cancer is still… Expand
