Metabolic Heterogeneity in Human Lung Tumors
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is heterogeneous in the genetic and environmental parameters that influence cell metabolism in culture. Here, we assessed the impact of these factors on human NSCLCExpand

Lactate Metabolism in Human Lung Tumors
Cancer cells consume glucose and secrete lactate in culture. It is unknown whether lactate contributes to energy metabolism in living tumors. We previously reported that human non-small-cell lungExpand

Gefitinib versus placebo in completely resected non-small-cell lung cancer: results of the NCIC CTG BR19 study.
PURPOSE Survival of patients with completely resected non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is unsatisfactory, and in 2002, the benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy was not established. This phase III studyExpand

Recommendations for Uniform Definitions of Surgical Techniques for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma: A Consensus Report of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer International
Introduction: Extrapleural pneumonectomy has been well defined; however, surgeons vary regarding the surgical extent and goals of “pleurectomy/decortication” (P/D). We explored mesothelioma surgeons'Expand

Homeobox gene methylation in lung cancer studied by genome-wide analysis with a microarray-based methylated CpG island recovery assay
De novo methylation of CpG islands is a common phenomenon in human cancer, but the mechanisms of cancer-associated DNA methylation are not known. We have used tiling arrays in combination with theExpand

A Comparison of a Left-Sided Broncho-Cath® with the Torque Control Blocker Univent and the Wire-Guided Blocker
Lung isolation can be accomplished in two ways: the first, a double-lumen endotracheal tube (DLT) and the second, a bronchial blocker (Univent® or Arndt® blocker). Previous studies have found thatExpand

Predictors of finding benefit after lung cancer diagnosis
Objective: We examined benefit finding in patients with lung cancer, including level of benefit finding and change in benefit finding over time, and tested a predictive model postulating that greaterExpand
