The majority of lung cancers (LC) belong to the non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) type. The two main NSCLC sub-types, namely adenocarcinoma (AC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), respond differently to therapy. Whereas the link between cigarette smoke and lung cancer risk is well established, the relevance of non-canonical Wnt pathway up-regulation(More)
There is no single technique which fulfils the criterion for a reference method to detect Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection. The aim was to compare the results of antral histology (H), rapid urease test (U) and urea breath test (UBT) from antral biopsy samples in patients having gastric or duodenal lesions during upper GI endoscopy. We used the following(More)
Lung cancer is a heterogeneous group of disease and mutational profiling of lung adenocarcinomas is a routine practice in thoracic oncology. Kirsten-RAS (KRAS) and EGFR mutations play an important role in the carcinogenesis of a subset of lung adenocarcinomas. Our aim was to investigate the correlation between bone metastases and EGFR and KRAS mutation(More)
OBJECTIVE Applicability of harmonic scalpel in lung biopsy was investigated in a randomised single institute study. METHODS Safety of the method, morbidity, drainage duration and in-hospital stays were compared in two randomised groups of patients in which either ultrasonic harmonic scalpel (n:20) or endostapler (n:20) were used for pulmonary biopsies(More)
Angiogenesis is important both in normal tissue function and disease and represents a key target in lung cancer (LC) therapy. Unfortunately, the two main subtypes of non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLC) namely, adenocarcinoma (AC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) respond differently to anti-angiogenic e.g. anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A(More)
In the last decades new therapeutic drugs have been developed for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) significantly increase the progression free survival (PFS) of patients with NSCLC carrying epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations. This type of lung cancer occurs mainly among(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer (LC) is still the most common cause of cancer related deaths worldwide. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for 85% of all LC cases but is not a single entity. It is now accepted that, apart from the characteristic driver mutations, the unique molecular signatures of adeno- (AC) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC), the two most(More)
