Oxidative stress and inflammation in the normal airways and blood of patients with lung cancer and COPD.
Respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are associated with a greater risk for lung cancer (LC). Oxidative stress and inflammation are involved in LCExpand

Pharmacological Strategies in Lung Cancer‐Induced Cachexia: Effects on Muscle Proteolysis, Autophagy, Structure, and Weakness
Cachexia is a relevant comorbid condition of chronic diseases including cancer. Inflammation, oxidative stress, autophagy, ubiquitin–proteasome system, nuclear factor (NF)‐κB, and mitogen‐activatedExpand

Role of PARP activity in lung cancer‐induced cachexia: Effects on muscle oxidative stress, proteolysis, anabolic markers, and phenotype
Strategies to treat cachexia are still at its infancy. Enhanced muscle protein breakdown and ubiquitin‐proteasome system are common features of cachexia associated with chronic conditions includingExpand

Reduced tumor burden through increased oxidative stress in lung adenocarcinoma cells of PARP-1 and PARP-2 knockout mice.
Lung cancer (LC) is currently a major leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARP)-1 and -2 play important roles in DNA repair and other cell functions. OxidativeExpand

Systemic and Tumor Th1 and Th2 Inflammatory Profile and Macrophages in Lung Cancer: Influence of Underlying Chronic Respiratory Disease
Introduction: Chronic respiratory conditions, especially chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and inflammatory events underlie lung cancer (LC). We hypothesized that profiles of T helper 1Expand

Redox Imbalance in Lung Cancer of Patients with Underlying Chronic Respiratory Conditions
Chronic respiratory diseases such as obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and oxidative stress may underlie lung cancer (LC). We hypothesized that the profile of oxidative and antioxidant events mayExpand

Profile of epigenetic mechanisms in lung tumors of patients with underlying chronic respiratory conditions
BackgroundChronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and epigenetic events underlie lung cancer (LC) development. The study objective was that lung tumor expressionExpand

Pharmacological Approaches in an Experimental Model of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: Effects on Tumor Biology.
Lung cancer (LC) remains the leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide, and non-small cell LC (NSCLC) represents 80% of all LC. Oxidative stress and inflammation, autophagy, ubiquitin-proteasomeExpand

Immune Cell Subtypes and Cytokines in Lung Tumor Microenvironment: Influence of COPD
Background: The immune microenvironment plays a role in tumorigenesis. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an independent risk factor for lung cancer (LC). We hypothesized that immuneExpand

B Cells and Tertiary Lymphoid Structures Influence Survival in Lung Cancer Patients with Resectable Tumors
Simple Summary Nowadays, humans still die of lung cancer (LC), a disease mainly related to cigarette smoking (CS). Smokers also develop chronic bronchitis, namely chronic obstructive pulmonaryExpand
