Exhaled volatile organic compounds in patients with non-small cell lung cancer: cross sectional and nested short-term follow-up study
VOC analysis could be used as a complementary test for the early diagnosis of lung cancer and its possible use in the follow-up of operated patients cannot be recommended on the basis of the results of the short-term nested study.
Grading the neuroendocrine tumors of the lung: an evidence-based proposal.
A three-tiers grading system based on Ki67 index, mitotic count, and necrosis with cutoffs specifically generated for lung neuroendocrine tumors is prognostically effective and accurate.
Changes in Lung Function and Respiratory Muscle Strength after Sternotomy vs. Laparotomy in Patients without Ventilatory Limitation
The present study shows that sternotomy can induce greater respiratory effects than laparotomy and suggests a relevant involvement of respiratory muscle weakness after surgical opening of the thorax and supports the view that the evaluation of patient’s lung function before sternectomy can be clinically relevant.
Biological markers in non-small cell lung cancer. Retrospective study of 10 year follow-up after surgery.
The results emphasize the importance of p53 as a prognostic factor in 10-year survival in patients with adenocarcinoma and in stage II and IIIa and the determination of the biological markers using the ABC (Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase complex) immunohistochemical method.
