Cardiovascular Complications Associated with Contemporary Lung Cancer Treatments

Kazuhiro Sase, Yasuhito Fujisaka, Masaaki Shoji, Mikio Mukai

Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer in humans and the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Traditionally, lung cancer has been diagnosed as either small cell lung cancer (SCLC) or non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, recent developments in molecular pathology have revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of the disease, thus improving patient prognosis and increasing the number of survivors. In advanced NSCLC cases, molecularly targeted drugs for patients with...

Inflammation, Infection and Venous Thromboembolism

Meaghan E Colling, Benjamin E Tourdot, Yogendra Kanthi

The association between inflammation, infection, and venous thrombosis has long been recognized; yet, only in the last decades have we begun to understand the mechanisms through which the immune and coagulation systems interact and reciprocally regulate one another. These interconnected networks mount an effective response to injury and pathogen invasion, but if unregulated can result in pathological thrombosis and organ damage. Neutrophils, monocytes, and platelets interact with each other and...

The Expression of WTAP Gene in Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Its Clinical Significance

Lu-Lu Yang, Ran-Ran Zhao, Ruo-Yu Jiang, Hong Liu, Shi-Yuan Zhou, Bin Gu, Xiao-Jin Wu, De-Pei Wu

CONCLUSION: The expression level of WTAP gene is increasing in new diagnosed non-M3 acute myeloid leukemia. There is a positive correlation between the expression level of WTAP gene and the expression level of WT1 fusion gene. WTAP mRNA always shows higher expression in patients with FLT3-ITD mutation than that in patients without FLT3-ITD mutation, and shows lower expression in patients with CEBPα mutation than that in unmutated group.

Feasibility and outcomes of cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC for peritoneal surface malignancies in low- and middle-income countries: a single-center experience of 232 cases

Suryanarayana Deo, Mukurdipi Ray, Babul Bansal, Sandeep Bhoriwal, Sushma Bhatnagar, Rakesh Garg, Nishkarsh Gupta, Atul Sharma, Lalit Kumar, Sanjay Thulkar, Ekta Dhamija, Sandeep Mathur, Prasenjit Das

CONCLUSIONS: Results of the current study indicate that it is feasible to establish a successful CRS and HIPEC program for PSM in government-funded hospitals in LMIC facing resource constraints. The most common indication for CRS and HIPEC were carcinoma of the ovary followed by pseudomyxoma peritonei and colorectal carcinoma. Overall morbidity and mortality in the current series are comparable to global standards, reported from high-income countries. A protocol-based multidisciplinary team...
