We have analysed the predictive and prognostic information in preoperatively collected serum levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in patients clinically evaluated as operable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Fifty-eight patients with operable NSCLC were included. VEGF and bFGF levels in serum were(More)
BACKGROUND Respiratory failure secondary to cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) remains a major complication after cardiac surgery. The authors previously found that the increase in intrapulmonary shunt was well correlated with the amount of atelectasis. They tested the hypothesis that post-CPB atelectasis can be prevented by a vital capacity maneuver (VCM)(More)
Mesothelioma is a rare disease with poor prognosis. Monitoring the effect of treatment is a problem and a serum marker might be of use for this purpose. We have studied three serum markers TPA, Hyaluronan and CA 125 in a limited material (11 patients) with the purpose of finding out if they might reflect treatment effect and/or indicate prognosis. The(More)
BACKGROUND During recent years, a correlation between the presence of antibodies in sera against p53 and survival has been reported. The aim of the present study was to analyze anti-p53 antibodies in sera from patients with non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) prior to thoracic surgery and their correlation to survival, nodal involvement, and tumor volume.
