Hide Abstract
TP53 mutations are extremely rare in malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). In TP53 wild-type tumors, the functional p53 protein can be inactivated by MDM2.

The European initiative for quality management in lung cancer care.

Hide Abstract
Lung cancer is the commonest cause of cancer-related death worldwide and poses a significant respiratory disease burden. Little is known about the provision of lung cancer care across Europe. The overall aim of the Task Force was to investigate current practice in lung cancer care across Europe. The Task Force undertook four projects: 1) a narrative literature search on quality management of lung cancer; 2) a survey of national and local infrastructure for lung cancer care in Europe; 3) a benchmarking project on the quality of (inter)national lung cancer guidelines in Europe; and 4) a feasibility study of prospective data collection in a pan-European setting. There is little peer-reviewed literature on quality management in lung cancer care. The survey revealed important differences in the infrastructure of lung cancer care in Europe. The European guidelines that were assessed displayed wide variation in content and scope, as well as methodological quality but at the same time there was relevant duplication. The feasibility study demonstrated that it is, in principle, feasible to collect prospective demographic and clinical data on patients with lung cancer. Legal obligations vary among countries. The European Initiative for Quality Management in Lung Cancer Care has provided the first comprehensive snapshot of lung cancer care in Europe.

Metastasectomy for synchronous solitary non-small cell lung cancer metastases.
Ann. Thorac. Surg.
PUBLISHED: 03-18-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Surgical treatment of patients with limited metastatic lesions from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains controversial; however, reports suggest that a subset of patients may benefit from complete resection including metastasectomy.

The "COLD-PCR approach" for early and cost-effective detection of tyrosine kinase inhibitor resistance mutations in EGFR-positive non-small cell lung cancer.
Appl. Immunohistochem. Mol. Morphol.
PUBLISHED: 02-13-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Activating epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations can be successfully treated by EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs), but nearly 50% of all patients' exhibit progression of the disease until treatment because of T790M mutations. It is proposed that this is mostly caused by therapy-resistant tumor clones harboring a T790M mutation. Until now no cost-effective routine-diagnostic method for EGFR-resistance mutation status analysis is available leaving long-time response to TKI treatment to chance. Unambiguous identification of T790M EGFR mutations is mandatory to optimize initial treatment strategies.

Oral vinorelbine plus cisplatin as first-line chemotherapy in nonsquamous non-small-cell lung cancer: final results of an International randomized phase II study (NAVotrial 01).
Clin Lung Cancer
PUBLISHED: 01-15-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The combination of oral vinorelbine plus cisplatin has been studied in numerous trials as first-line treatment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) regardless of histologic subtype. NAVoTrial 01 is the first study that explores this combination specifically in nonsquamous (NS) NSCLC by assessing the feasibility of this doublet (ratio 1:2) in an investigational approach. A reference arm with pemetrexed plus cisplatin was included. Maintenance therapy with single-agent therapy after 4 cycles of combination therapy was included in the study schedules because it reflected a trend in first-line treatment of NSCLC.

Evaluation of long noncoding RNA MALAT1 as a candidate blood-based biomarker for the diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer.
BMC Res Notes
PUBLISHED: 08-22-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The long noncoding RNA MALAT1 (metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1) is described as a potential biomarker for NSCLC (non-small cell lung cancer). Diagnostic biomarkers need to be detectable in easily accessible body fluids, should be characterized by high specificity, sufficient sensitivity, and robustness against influencing factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of MALAT1 as a blood based biomarker for NSCLC.

Reduced folate carrier and folylpolyglutamate synthetase, but not thymidylate synthase predict survival in pemetrexed-treated patients suffering from malignant pleural mesothelioma.
J Thorac Oncol
PUBLISHED: 03-02-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Malignant mesothelioma is a highly aggressive tumor arising from mesothelial-lined surfaces, most often in the pleura cavities. Antifolates belong to the most effective cytotoxic drugs for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) treatment. Pemetrexed is an antifolate inhibiting different folate pathway genes (thymidylate synthase [TS], dihydrofolate reductase, glycinamide ribonucleotide formyltransferase [GARFT], and aminoimidazole carboxamide ribonucleotide formyltransferase, [AICARFT]). Increased activity of pemetrexed occurs by folylpolyglutamate synthetase (FPGS), intracellular transport by reduced folate carrier (RFC). The aim of the study was to explore potential correlations between TS, GARFT, AICARFT, RFC, and FPGS levels in MPM and associations with clinical benefit from pemetrexed treatment.

The frequency of EGFR and KRAS mutations in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC): routine screening data for central Europe from a cohort study.
BMJ Open
PUBLISHED: 01-01-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Owing to novel therapy strategies in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-mutated patients, molecular analysis of the EGFR and KRAS genome has become crucial for routine diagnostics. Till date these data have been derived mostly from clinical trials, and thus collected in pre-selected populations. We therefore screened allcomers with a newly diagnosed non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) for the frequencies of these mutations.

Morphometrical analysis of transbronchial cryobiopsies.
Diagn Pathol
PUBLISHED: 04-01-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The recent introduction of bronchoscopically recovered cryobiopsy of lung tissue has opened up new possibilities in the diagnosis of neoplastic and non-neoplastic lung diseases in various aspects. Most notably the morphological diagnosis of peripheral lung biopsies promises to achieve a better yield with a high quality of specimens. To better understand this phenomenon, its diagnostic options and perspectives, this study morphometrically compares 15 cryobiopsies and 18 transbronchial forceps biopsies of peripheral lung tissue a priori without considering clinical hit ratio or integration of results in the clinical diagnostic processing. Cryotechnically harvested specimens were significantly larger (mean: 17.1 ± 10.7 mm2 versus 3.8 ± 4.0 mm2) and contained alveolar tissue more often. If present, the alveolar part in cryobiopsies exceeded the one of forceps biopsies. The alveolar tissue of crybiopsy specimens did not show any artefacts. Based on these results cryotechnique seems to open up new perspectives in bronchoscopic diagnosis of lung disease.

Development of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the detection of human calretinin in plasma and serum of mesothelioma patients.
BMC Cancer
PUBLISHED: 05-28-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Calretinin is one of the well-established immunohistochemical markers in the diagnostics of malignant mesothelioma (MM). Its utility as a diagnostic tool in human blood, however, is scarcely investigated. The aim of this study was to develop an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for human calretinin in blood and to assess its usefulness as a potential minimally invasive diagnostic marker for MM.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
