Pembrolizumab Has Improved Survival for Patients with Metastatic NSCLC

Jul 20, 2022

Although the development of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) such as pembrolizumab has dramatically improved survival for patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), new predictive ...

Ground-glass Opacity (GGOp-LC) after Stereotactic Body Radiation (SBRT)

Jul 20, 2022

For a study, researchers sought to assess early-phase CT findings of ground-glass opacity (GGOp-LC) following stereotactic body radiation (SBRT). Patients with cTis-2bN0M0 GGOp-LC treated with SBRT we...

Lung Cancer: Prevalence and Impact of Medical Comorbidities

Jul 20, 2022

For a study, researchers sought to assess the occurrence and consequences of comorbidities in a real-world population receiving low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) scans. Investigators calculated the ...

cfDNA-Based EGFR Mutation Testing as a Monitoring Tool for NSCLC Patients

Jul 20, 2022

For a study, researchers sought to evaluate the viability of cfDNA-based EGFR mutation testing as a monitoring tool for NSCLC patients. Patients with NSCLC carrying EGFR mutations and undergoing stand...

Lung Cancer Screening: Influence of Comorbidities

Jul 20, 2022

For a study, researchers examined the impact of self-reported chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, coronary artery disease, stroke, and diabetes mellitus on diagnostic complications in lung cancer s...

Complex Segmentectomy vs. Wedge Resection in Clinical Stage 0-IA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Jul 20, 2022

For a study, the researchers examined the oncological outcomes of complicated segmentectomy and wedge resection for clinical stage 0-IA lung cancer using propensity score-matched analysis on a large c...

Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Mortality

Jul 18, 2022

The fractional concentration of exhaled Nitric Oxide (FeNO) as a predictor of death in people with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is little understood (COPD). For a study, researchers...

Identifying Asthma Patients at High Risk of Exacerbation in a Routine Visit

Jul 18, 2022

Asthma care in clinical practice can be aided by tools that anticipate the probability of exacerbations. Existing solutions, however, need extra information from patients in addition to electronic med...

Depression and Anxiety Symptoms in COPD Patients

Jul 18, 2022

Individuals suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) frequently experience anxiety and sadness, which exacerbates illness treatment and prognosis. Physical and psychological symptom...

Differences in Cardiac Sarcoidosis Outcome

Jul 18, 2022

Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous inflammatory illness that affects the entire body. Cardiac involvement is linked to an increase in morbidity. However, clinical features and prognosis changes based on e...

COPD Patient Clustering & Responsiveness to Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Jul 15, 2022
