What is Trip?
Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.
Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.
As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

Indication under review: in combination with pemetrexed and platinum chemotherapy, for the first-line treatment of metastatic non-squamous non-small cell lungcarcinoma (NSCLC) in adults whose tumours have no EGFR or ALK positive mutations. The addition of pembrolizumab to pemetrexed and platinum chemotherapy significantly improved
Persisting new nodules in incidence rounds of the NELSON CT lungcancer screening study The US guidelines recommend low-dose CT (LDCT) lungcancer screening for high-risk individuals. New solid nodules after baseline screening are common and have a high lungcancer probability. Currently, no evidence exists concerning the risk stratification of non-resolving new solid nodules at first LDCT screening after initial detection.In the Dutch-Belgian Randomized LungCancer Screening (NELSON) trial (...) nodules were resolving, leaving 356 (52%) participants with a non-resolving new solid nodule, of whom 25 (7%) were diagnosed with lungcancer. At first screening after initial detection, volume doubling time (VDT), volume, and VDT combined with a predefined ≥200 mm3 volume cut-off had high discrimination for lungcancer (VDT, area under the curve (AUC): 0.913; volume, AUC: 0.875; VDT and ≥200 mm3 combination, AUC: 0.939). Classifying a new solid nodule with either ≤590 days VDT or ≥200 mm3 volume
Short-Term Readmissions After Open, Thoracoscopic, and Robotic Lobectomy for LungCancer Based on the Nationwide Readmissions Database Readmission after surgery is an established surrogate indicator of quality of care. We aimed to compare short-term readmission rates and patient outcomes between open, video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS), and robotic lobectomies in the Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD).Adults who underwent open, VATS, or robotic lobectomy for lungcancer from 2010 to 2014 (...) were evaluated. Propensity-matched analysis was used to assess differences in readmission characteristics, GDP-adjusted cost, and mortality.Of the 129,539 lobectomies for lungcancer, 74,493 (57.5%) were open, 48,185 (37.2%) VATS, and 6861 (5.3%) robotic. Open surgery was associated with significantly higher readmission rate (10.5 vs 9.3%, p < 0.001), mortality (2 vs 1.2%, p < 0.001), index hospitalization cost [$21,846 (16,158-31,034) vs $20,779 (15,619-27,920), p < 0.001], and length of stay [6
Randomized Phase II Trial of Cisplatin and Etoposide in Combination With Veliparib or Placebo for Extensive-Stage Small-Cell LungCancer: ECOG-ACRIN 2511 Study Veliparib, a poly (ADP ribose) polymerase inhibitor, potentiated standard chemotherapy against small-cell lungcancer (SCLC) in preclinical studies. We evaluated the combination of veliparib with cisplatin and etoposide (CE; CE+V) doublet in untreated, extensive-stage SCLC (ES-SCLC).Patients with ES-SCLC, stratified by sex and serum
<0.01 for interaction). This association was strong and consistent across all histological subtypes, except for adenocarcinoma, which was not strongly associated with hsCRP concentration regardless of smoking status (odds ratio for adenocarcinoma overall 0.97, 95% confidence interval 0.94 to 1.01). The association between circulating hsCRP concentration and the risk of lungcancer was strongest in the first two years of follow-up for former and current smokers. Including hsCRP concentration (...) in a risk model, in addition to smoking based variables, did not improve risk discrimination overall, but slightly improved discrimination for cancers diagnosed in the first two years of follow-up.Former and current smokers with higher circulating hsCRP concentrations had a higher risk of lungcancer overall. Circulating hsCRP concentration was not associated with the risk of lungadenocarcinoma. Circulating hsCRP concentration could be a prediagnostic marker of lungcancer rather than a causal risk
A Model-Based Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of an Exercise Program for LungCancer Survivors Following Curative-Intent Treatment. The cost-effectiveness of exercise interventions in lungcancer survivors is unknown. We performed a model-based cost-effectiveness analysis of an exercise intervention in lungcancer survivors.We used Markov modeling to simulate the impact of the Lifestyle Interventions and Independence for Elders (LIFE) exercise intervention compared to usual care for stage I-IIIA (...) lungcancer survivors following curative-intent treatment. We calculated and considered incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (ICERs) <$100,000/quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) as cost-effective and assessed model uncertainty using sensitivity analyses.The base-case model showed that the LIFE exercise program would increase overall cost by $4,740 and effectiveness by 0.06 QALYs compared to usual care and have an ICER of $79,504/QALY. The model was most sensitive to the cost of the exercise program
Management of anlotinib-related adverse events in patients with advanced non-small cell lungcancer: Experiences in ALTER-0303. Anlotinib is an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting vascular endothelial growth factor receptor, fibroblast growth factor receptor, platelet-derived growth factor receptor, and stem cell factor receptor (c-Kit). In the phase III ALTER-0303 trial (Clinical Trial Registry ID: NCT 02388919), anlotinib significantly improved overall survival versus placebo in advanced (...) non-small cell lungcancer patients who had received at least two previous chemotherapy and epidermal growth factor receptor/anaplastic lymphoma kinase targeted therapy regimens. This study summarized adverse event management in this trial.Patients were randomized (2:1) to anlotinib or placebo up to progression or intolerable toxicity. Adverse events were graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events Version 4.0 and managed by investigators. Key

annually, exceeding those from any other malignancy . Lungcancer is the most common cause of cancer death in men and the second leading cause of cancer death in women, worldwide. It is the commonest cancer in Asia and is the leading cause of death in Southern, Eastern and South Eastern Asia . Fifty-one percent of the world’s lungcancer cases occur in Asia , and 21% of cancer deaths in Asia are due to lung can- cer . The number of cases and the crude and standardised inci- dence rates (...) who have never smoked being especially marked in Asian countries . A recent Korean study of 5456 cases of lungcancer in a community cancer centre showed the proportion of cases in never smokers to have increased from 19.4% between 2004 and 2008 to 25.4% be- tween 2009 and 2012 . Epidemiological data have resulted in ‘non-smoking-associ- ated lungcancer’ being considered a distinct disease entity, where speci?c molecular and genetic differences have been identi?ed between the lungcancers

lungcancers are epithelial tumours that develop from squamous or glandular epithelium (adenocarcinoma) . Lungcarcinoma is also referred to as bronchial carcinoma since this malignanttumour arises from the bronchial epithelium [10, 11]. It is classified into the following main histological types : ? Small cell lungcancer (SCLC; approx. 15%) ? Non-small cell lungcancer (NSCLC; approx. 85%): ? squamous cell carcinoma: spindle cell variant (40%) Extract of rapid report V18-03 Version 1.0 (...) malignanttumours in the lungMalignant lymphomas and sarcomas are canceroustumours that can arise as primary thoracic tumours or as lung metastases . Metastases to the lung often also develop in connection with carcinomas of the colon, rectum, kidney, breast, prostate, and oropharynx . Diffuse malignant pleural mesothelioma originates in the mesothelial or submesothelial cells of the pleura, peritoneum, or pericardium. More than 80% of mesotheliomas originate in the pleura.
