121. Association between serum copper levels and lung cancer risk: A meta-analysis. (Full text)

Association between serum copper levels and lung cancer risk: A meta-analysis. To evaluate the association between serum copper levels and lung cancer risk.We searched the electronic PubMed, WanFang, CNKI, and SinoMed databases to identify studies including information on serum copper levels and lung cancer. Standard mean differences and corresponding 95% confidence intervals were calculated using Stata 12.0 software. We performed a meta-analysis on the identified studies overall and according (...) to geographic location. We also evaluated heterogeneity among the studies and the occurrence of publication bias.Thirty-three articles including 3026 cases and 9439 controls were included in our study. The combined results showed that serum copper levels were higher in patients with lung cancer compared with controls without lung cancer, though the results showed high heterogeneity. In a subgroup analysis according to geographic location, significant associations between copper levels and lung cancer were

122. Clinical efficacy and safety of synthetic thymic peptides with chemotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer in China: A systematic review and meta-analysis of 27 randomized controlled trials following the PRISMA guidelines. (Abstract)

Clinical efficacy and safety of synthetic thymic peptides with chemotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer in China: A systematic review and meta-analysis of 27 randomized controlled trials following the PRISMA guidelines. Synthetic thymic peptides (sTPs) are used with chemotherapy to treat non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In this study, we have performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of published trials to confirm the clinical efficacy and safety of sTPs, and determine the optimal (...) , most with unclear bias risk. Combining sTPs with chemotherapy significantly increased the objective response rate [1.28, (1.13 to 1.45)], disease control rate [1.10, (1.01 to 1.18)], quality of life (QOL) [2.05, (1.62, 2.60)], and 1-year overall survival rate [1.43, (1.15 to 1.78)], with decreased risks of neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, and gastrointestinal reactions.

CT Characteristics of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer With Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase Rearrangement: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis regarding CT features of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangement. MATERIALS AND METHODS. The PubMed and Embase databases were searched up to February 20, 2019. Studies that evaluated CT features of NSCLC with and without ALK (...) prevalence of patients with ALK rearrangement was 17% (528/3113). Compared with NSCLC without ALK rearrangement, on CT images those with ALK rearrangement were more frequently solid (OR = 2.86), central in location (OR = 2.72), and 3 cm or smaller (OR = 0.57); had lower contrast-enhanced CT attenuation (MD = -4.79 HU); more frequently had N2 or N3 disease (OR = 5.63), lymphangitic carcinomatosis (OR = 3.46), pleural effusion (OR = 1.91), or pleural metastasis (OR = 1.81); and less frequently had lung

Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery versus Thoracotomy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: A Meta-Analysis. Patients undergoing surgery for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are often elderly and have co-morbidity conditions and decreased performance status. Compared with open thoracotomy, video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy is associated with fewer postoperative complications. Despite encouraging results for patients with NSCLC who underwent VATS, the procedure is still not widely accepted

126. Efficacy and Safety of Robot-assisted Thoracic Surgery (RATS) Compare with Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) for Lung Lobectomy in Patients with Non-small Cell Lung Cancer. (Abstract)

Efficacy and Safety of Robot-assisted Thoracic Surgery (RATS) Compare with Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) for Lung Lobectomy in Patients with Non-small Cell Lung Cancer. In the past decade, many researchers focused on Robotic- Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (RATS), which has been introduced as an alternative minimally invasive approach, versus Video- Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) for lung lobectomy in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. However, the advantage of RVATS (...) compared to VATS is still under investigation. The results are unclear.The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of Robot-assisted Thoracic Surgery (RATS) lobectomy versus Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) for lobectomy in patients with Non- Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).A systematic electronic search of online electronic databases: Pubmed, Embase, Cochrane library updated in June 2017.

Occupational exposure to formaldehyde and risk of lung cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Formaldehyde exposure is associated with nasopharyngeal cancer and leukemia. Previously-described links between formaldehyde exposure and lung cancer have been weak and inconsistent. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate quantitatively the association between formaldehyde exposure and lung cancer.We searched for articles on occupational formaldehyde exposure and lung (...) cancer in PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, and CINAHL databases. In total, 32 articles were selected and 31 studies were included in a meta-analysis. Subgroup analyses and quality assessments were also performed.The risk of lung cancer among workers exposed to formaldehyde was not significantly increased, with an overall pooled risk estimate of 1.04 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.97-1.12). The pooled risk estimate of lung cancer was increased when higher exposure studies were considered (1.19; 95

134. Cell-Free Circulating Tumour DNA Blood Testing to Detect EGFR T790M Mutation in People With Advanced Non–Small Cell Lung Cancer

: about 60% of NSCLCs are adenocarcinoma. Former or current smoking is often a causal factor in all forms of lung cancer. However, nonsmokers with lung cancer frequently have adenocarcinoma. This type of cancer is usually found on the outer parts of the lung. People with adenocarcinoma tend to have better survival than people with other types of lung cancer • Squamous cell (epidermoid) carcinoma: 25% to 30% of all NSCLCs are squamous cell carcinomas. Squamous cells are flat cells that line the inside (...) • Other subtypes: Less common NSCLC subtypes include adenosquamous carcinoma and sarcomatoid carcinoma The progression of cancer is divided into four stages; a higher number signifies more extensive disease. In stage 1, the cancer is confined to the original site within the lung and there is no sign of spread to lymph nodes (N0) or elsewhere (M0). In stage 2, the cancer has spread to lymph nodes within the lung (N1). In stage 3, the cancer has spread to lymph nodes in the middle of the chest

Factors associated with improved OS on multivariable analysis were standard radiation dose, tumor location, institution accrual volume, esophagitis/dysphagia, planning target volume and heart V5. The use of cetuximab conferred no survival benefit at the expense of increased toxicity. The prior signal of benefit in patients with higher H scores was no longer apparent.

140. Prognostic value of pre-treatment red blood cell distribution width in lung cancer: a meta-analysis. (Abstract)

Prognostic value of pre-treatment red blood cell distribution width in lung cancer: a meta-analysis. Objective: In recent years, increasing studies found that pre-treatment red blood cell distribution width (RDW) could predict clinical outcomes in various cancers. However, the prognostic value of pre-treatment RDW in lung cancer was inconsistent. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to determine prognostic value of pre-treatment RDW in lung cancer.Methods: We performed a search in PubMed (...) , The Cochrane Library, EMBASE (via OVID), Web of Science, CNKI, Wanfang, VIP, SinoMed databases, then we identified all records up to February 15, 2019. Outcomes of interest were overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS). Hazard ratios (HRs) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated to assess the relevance of pre-treatment RDW to OS in lung cancer.Results: We included ten articles in total. Pooled results revealed that elevated pre-treatment RDW was significantly
