The impact of the regimen of screening on lung cancer cure( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : The aim of this study was to assess the impact of the regimen of screening on the frequency of early diagnosis and resection in two computed tomography screening programs. The stage and size distribution of all screen-diagnosed lung cancers was compared. A total of 775 patients in the International Early Lung Cancer Action Program (I-ELCAP) and 664 patients in the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) were screen-diagnosed; that is, resulting from a positive result requiring further diagnostic workup. The frequency of stage I diagnoses, resections, tumor size, and lung cancer-specific survival were determined. Cox regression was used to identify the key determinants of lung cancer cure. The frequency of clinical stage I lung cancer in I-ELCAP was 82%, and in the NLST it was 67% (P <0.0001). The frequency of stage I (pathologic and clinical if not resected) was 78% in I-ELCAP and 62% in the NLST (P <0.0001). Surgical resection was performed in 86% (664/755) in I-ELCAP and 76% (492/644, P <0.0001) in the NLST. The average tumor size was 17 mm in I-ELCAP and 23 mm in the NLST (P <0.0001). The 5-year survival rate was 83% in I-ELCAP and 62% in the NLST (P <0.0001). Cox regression showed that I-ELCAP provided a 50% better survival benefit than the NLST and that stage I and resection were key determinants of survival, independent of age, smoking history, and tumor size. The higher frequency of stage I disease and resection and smaller tumor size resulted in a significantly higher survival rate in I-ELCAP than in the NLST. These differences strongly support the importance of a specified regimen of screening, as alternative explanations have been addressed
A clinical assessment and lung tissue burden from an individual who worked as a Libby vermiculite miner( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: During its days of operation (1920s-1990), the world's largest source of vermiculite was extracted from a mine located near Libby, Montana. The material mined at this site was shipped for various commercial applications to numerous sites in the United States. There was a "fibrous" component with toxic potential within the vermiculite deposit that has resulted in "asbestos-like" diseases/deaths being reported in numerous studies involving miners as well as residents of the town of Libby. The present case involves the clinical assessments of an individual who worked at the mine from 1969 to 1990. He had no other known occupational exposures to fibrous materials. He developed a clinical picture that included "asbestos-like" pathological features and eventually an adenocarcinoma. The clinical assessment including radiographic features will be presented. The evaluation will also include the analytical evaluation of the fibrous/ferruginous body composition of the lung tissue. This is to our knowledge the first time such an extensive evaluation has been conducted in a vermiculite miner from Libby, Montana
Survival after Sublobar Resection for Early‐Stage Lung Cancer: Methodological Obstacles in Comparing the Efficacy to Lobectomy( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT : Introduction: : Surgery is the treatment of choice for early‐stage lung cancer (LC). Although lobectomy (L) is the historic standard treatment, the issue of whether long‐term outcomes of sublobar resection (SL) are comparable is still under debate. The objective of this study was to perform a review of the literature on 5‐year survival rates after SL compared to L for patients with early‐stage LC. Methods: : A priori inclusion criteria were as follows: (1) observational studies, (2) L compared to SL for early‐stage LC, (3) radiographic staging by computed tomography scan, and (4) 5‐year survival reported. A Medline search through January 2015 resulted in 31 studies representing 23 distinct datasets. The absolute difference in 5‐year survival was calculated and plotted for each study. Results: : L was performed in 4564 patients and SL in 2287 patients. Of 19 studies reporting the reason for SL, 11 indicated that SL was performed because of comorbidities or impaired cardiopulmonary function. Four studies showed no difference in 5‐year survival, 13 favored L, and six favored SL. One propensity score study favored L and the other favored SL. Of 20 studies reporting recurrence rate, 11 favored L and nine favored SL. Conclusions: : Studies comparing 5‐year survival rates of SL to L are sufficiently heterogeneous to prevent carrying out traditional meta‐analysis. SL survival is often similar to L when adjustments are made for age, comorbidities, or impaired cardiopulmonary function. New approaches are needed for the comparison of L to SL
