  • [Title] [Identification of candidate genes for lung adenocarcinoma using Toppgene].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Lung adenocarcinoma (AC) is the most common type of lung cancer, however, its mechanism of oncongenesis is still unknown.
  • The aim of this study is to screen candidate genes of lung adenocarcinoma using bioinformatics strategy and elucidate the mechanism of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Genes correlated with lung adenocarcinoma, obtained by data mining tools genecard and Fable were regarded as "train gene set".
  • Finally, candidate genes of lung adenocarcinoma were screened by the tool "Toppgene".
  • RESULTS: Three hundred and forty-four differential genes were defined as "test gene set", and 277 genes correlated with lung adenocarcinoma were regarded as "train gene set".
  • Thirty-six candidate genes were screened out by Toppgene, among them, 21 genes had nearly no report in cancer.
  • CONCLUSION: It is demonstrated that Toppgene is useful in identification of the candidate genes of lung adenocacinoma, which provides the proof for the discovery of the specific disease genes.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prognostic implication of dual-phase PET in adenocarcinoma of the lung.
  • The purpose of this study was to determine whether dual-phase (18)F-FDG PET could be a prognostic factor for adenocarcinoma of the lung.
  • METHODS: One hundred patients with histologically proven adenocarcinoma of the lung were included in this retrospective analysis.
  • The percentage change in the maximal standardized uptake values (SUVmax) of the cancer between the early and the delayed images was calculated.
  • RESULTS: Statistical analysis showed that SUVmax change over time between the early and the delayed PET was a strong independent predictor of outcome for lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Our findings suggest that the percentage SUVmax change over time is a strong prognostic factor in patients with lung adenocarcinoma and can be complementary to the other well-known factors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prognostic significance of grading in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Although grading has prognostic significance for many tumor types, a prognostically significant grading system for lung adenocarcinoma has not yet been established.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate histologic characteristics included in tumor grading systems, establish optimal cutoff values that have the strongest association with overall survival, and develop a grading system incorporating the histopathologic characteristics that the authors found to have prognostic significance in patients with lung adenocarcinoma.
  • METHODS: The authors studied lung adenocarcinomas from 85 consecutive patients, and evaluated the percentage of solid pattern (as a reflection of tumor architecture), the degree of cytologic atypia, and the mitotic count.
  • A grading score, computed as the sum of the architecture score and cytologic atypia score (2 = well differentiated, 3 = moderately differentiated, 4 = poorly differentiated), was a significant predictor of overall survival in univariate analysis (median overall survival times, 72.4, 39.5, and 8.7 months for well, moderately, and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, respectively; P = .0001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The authors describe a grading system that incorporates the percentage of solid pattern and degree of the cytologic atypia that is an independent predictor of survival in patients with lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Correlation between angiogenesis and p53 expression in lung adenocarcinoma of young patients.
  • Lung cancer commonly occurs in individuals who are 60 years of age or older.
  • Lung cancer in patients younger than 40 years of age is rare and is often advanced when discovered.
  • However, the biological features of lung cancer in young adults have not yet been fully elucidated.
  • This study was conducted to determine the role of p53 expression and neoangiogenesis in lung adenocarcinomas of young patients.
  • Lung adenocarcinomas, which were surgically resected from 20 patients younger than 40 years of age between 1977 and 1996, were compared with lung adenocarcinomas selected with random sampling from 45 patients older than 60 years of age.
  • The expression of p53, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), CD34, a marker for vascular endothelial cells, and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) were studied immunohistochemically in both young and elderly patient groups.
  • Lung adenocarcinomas with p53-positive staining showed higher expression of VEGF protein than p53-negative tumors in both the young and the elderly groups.
  • Lung adenocarcinoma occurring in young patients tends to have a poorer prognosis, and angiogenesis of lung adenocarcinoma in young patients is more closely correlated with p53 expression than in elderly patients.

  • [Title] Transcription repressor slug promotes carcinoma invasion and predicts outcome of patients with lung adenocarcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: In a previous genome-wide gene expression profiling analysis using an invasion cancer cell lines model, we have identified Slug as selectively overexpressed in the highly invasive cancer cells.
  • Here, we investigated the clinical significance of Slug in lung adenocarcinoma and the role of Slug in the process of cancer cell invasion and metastasis.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Real-time quantitative reverse transcription-PCR was used to investigate Slug mRNA in surgically resected lung adenocarcinoma of 54 patients and its correlation with survival.
  • We overexpressed Slug in a lung adenocarcinoma cell line with very low Slug levels and investigated the in vitro and in vivo effects of Slug expression.
  • RESULTS: High expression of Slug mRNA in lung cancer tissue was significantly associated with postoperative relapse (P = 0.03) and shorter patient survival (P < 0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Slug expression can predict the clinical outcome of lung adenocarcinoma patients.
  • Slug is a novel invasion-promoting gene in lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Integration of mRNA and microRNA profiles as prognostic and predictive markers in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • : 7522 Background: Lung adenocarcinoma (ADC) is a distinct biologic entity with unique gene amplifications (Weir B, Nature 2008).
  • Yet, comprehensive transcriptomic analysis, including microRNAs, specific to lung ADC are lacking.
  • METHODS: Using mRNA expression data from a discovery cohort of 154 patients with histologically proven early stage (I and II) lung ADC, signatures of oncogenic pathway and tumor microenvironment status were applied and further organized by hierarchical clustering to develop a metagene model.
  • Further, using in vitro assays in a large cohort of lung ADC cell lines (n = 42) with corresponding mRNA and microRNA data, novel microRNAs associated with a poor prognosis and their relationship to cisplatin resistance was elucidated.
  • Utilizing the extremes of survival to identify cohorts of patients as high and low risk phenotypes, using bayesian regression, a 100 gene signature ('metagene') that captured the diversity of signaling pathways unique to patients at increased risk of recurrence was identified and validated in an independent cohort (n = 364) of lung ADC samples with 78.3% accuracy.
  • Using in vitro cell proliferation assays, predicted high risk lung ADC cell lines were identified as being more resistant to cisplatin therapy than those predicted to be low risk (p=0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: mRNA and microRNA profiles reflect unique aspects of individual tumors and may characterize histology-specific tumor heterogeneity in lung ADC, providing an opportunity to better characterize the oncogenic process and refine therapeutic options.

  • [Title] Diagnostic reproducibility of squamous cell carcinoma (SC) in the era of histology-directed non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) chemotherapy: A large prospective study.
  • Both bevacizumab and pemetrexed (in first line) are FDA indicated for non-SC histology only, making precise diagnosis key, although data are few on the reproducibility of their categorization.
  • In this study, we estimate the reproducibility of SC versus non-SC classification to be only moderately precise.
  • METHODS: Pathologists (P) assigned WHOC diagnoses to virtual H&E slides from an incident surgical cohort of 96 primary lung tumors.
  • RESULTS: 12 self-identified "lung experts" (E) and 12 community (C) P scored slides based on the 44 possible WHOC DC totaling 222 pathologist-pairs and 7130 slides-pairs.
  • Distribution of DC included SC 30% and adenocarcinoma 36%.
  • Although this model tests the reproducibility of the WHOC, not clinical lung cancer diagnoses, it shows that reproducible diagnosis of SC based on H&E morphology alone is inadequate.
  • In the era of histology guided therapy, it highlights the need for strict diagnostic criteria and confirmatory IHC stains in the diagnosis of SC.

  • [Title] A multicenter phase II study to evaluate efficacy and safety of gefitinib as the first-line treatment for Korean patients (pts) with advanced pulmonary adenocarcinoma harboring EGFR mutations.
  • : 8066 Background: This study (D7913L00056) was designed to prospectively evaluate the efficacy and safety of first-line gefitinib treatment in pts with advanced pulmonary adenocarcinoma harboring EGFR mutations and to explore the molecular factors affecting the efficacy of gefitinib.
  • METHODS: Chemo-naïve pts with advanced (stage IIIB/IV/recurrent disease) pulmonary adenocarcinoma underwent direct DNA sequencing of tumor EGFR exons 18, 19 and 21.
  • The most common EGFR mutations were in-frame exon 19 deletions (del 19, 29 pts, 64%) and L858R point mutations in exon 21 (L858R, 15 pts, 33%).
  • The ORR and DCR were higher in pts with del 19 than those with L858R (62.1% vs 33.3%; P=0.0705 and 96.6% vs 66.7%; P=0.0062, respectively).
  • In addition, PFS at 12 mo was significantly better in pts with del 19 than those with L858R (63.2% vs 23.8%, P=0.0034).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Gefitinib as the first-line treatment for Korean pts with advanced pulmonary adenocarcinoma harboring EGFR mutations was very effective and well tolerated.
  • Subgroup analysis suggests that the benefit from gefitinib treatment was more prominent in pts with the del 19 mutation.

  • METHODS: The expression of ABH and Lewis A histo-blood group antigens were detected in normal tissue (n=30), primary adenocarcinoma (n=103) and corresponding metastatic lesion (n=41) with immunohistochemistry S-P method.
  • RESULTS: The positive expression of A, B, H antigens was found in normal corresponding pulmonary tissue.
  • While in cancer tissue, such expression was absent.
  • The absence in poorly differentiated tumor was significantly higher than in moderate and highly differentiated cell (P<0.001).
  • And the absent expression was statistically higher in tumor with metastasis than in without metastasis (P=0.036),higher in N<sub>2</sub> than in N<sub>1</sub> group, higher in secondary tumor in than primary focus(P=0.008).There was significantly statistical difference on the absent expression rates among normal pulmonary tissue, primary tumor and metastatic tumor (P<0.001), and having a tendency of increased absence rate.
  • The expression of Lewis A antigen was markedly higher in pulmonary adenocarcinoma than in normal tissue (P=0.024).
  • Concerning Lewis A expression, the significant difference was found in Stage I,II and III+IV cancers (P=0.001), while the positive expression rate in advanced cancer (StageII+III+IV) was remarkably higher than in early cancer (Stage I) .
  • CONCLUSIONS: The absence of ABH antigen is closely correlated with tumorigenesis, poor differentiation, and metastasis of primary adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : 11006 Background: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide, primarily due to metastatic disease.
  • Unfortunately, we lack a clear understanding of the molecular and cellular basis for lung cancer metastasis, partly because the experimental study is hampered by lack of good models.
  • METHODS/RESULTS: To address this deficiency we have developed an experimental murine model of metastatic NSCLC using cell lines derived from a genetic mouse model of human lung adenocarcinoma that develops metastatic disease owing to the expression of K-ras<sup>G12D</sup> and p53<sup>R172H</sup>.
  • Combined mRNA and microRNA profiling of highly metastatic subcutaneous tumors versus non-metastatic tumors revealed a signature for the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (including increases in known EMT-inducing transcription factors and down-regulation of genes responsible for maintenance of epithelial polarity) and associated loss of the microRNA-200 family (miR-141, 200a, 200b, 200c & 429) expression.
  • Forced expression of the miR-200 family produced a more epithelial cell phenotype and associated changes in the ability of the cancer cells to respond to EMT-inducing stimuli such as TGFβ.
  • We believe this to be a mechanism whereby changes in the tumor microenvironment influence tumor cell state and ability to undergo metastasis.
  • This work should provide new insights into the cell biology of tumor progression and metastasis, while generating new potential targets for therapy of metastatic disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : 8095 Background: The IGF-1R (IGF receptor type 1) pathway is frequently deregulated in human tumors and has become a target of interest for anti-cancer therapy.
  • METHODS: We examined the growth inhibitory effects of R1507, a fully-humanized IgG1 anti-IGF-1R monoclonal Ab (Roche), against a panel of 22 NSCLC cell lines using CellTiter Blue assays.
  • RESULTS: 5 of 22 NSCLC cell lines were moderately sensitive (25-50% growth inhibition) to R1507 alone.
  • In one EGFR mutant lung adenocarcinoma cell line, R1507 and erlotinib co-treatment induced apoptosis, whereas treatment with either drug alone induced only cell cycle arrest.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In NSCLC cell lines, high levels of total IGF-1R are associated with moderate sensitivity to R1507.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Identification and characterization of SP cells in human lung adenocarcinoma SPC-A1 cells.
  • With an extensive understanding of their biology, a major role for stem cells in the malignant process has been proposed and the existence of cancer stem cells(CSCs) has been confirmed in hematopoietic malignancies, brain cancer, and solid organ malignancies including breast, prostate, colon, and pancreatic cancer.
  • Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality in most large cities of China.
  • It is possible that lung cancer contains cancer stem cells responsible for its malignancy.
  • The aim of this study is to identify, characterize and enrich the CSC population that drives and maintains lung adenocarcinoma growth and metastasis.
  • METHODS: Side population (SP) cell analysis and sorting were applied to established human lung adenocarcinoma cell line and an attempt to further enrich them by preliminary serum-free culture before fluorescence activated cell sorting(FACS) was done.
  • Stem cell properties of SP cells were evaluated by their proliferative index, colony-forming efficiency, tumorigenic potential, bi-differentiation capacity and the expression of common stem cell surface markers.
  • RESULTS: Lung cancer cells could grow in a serum-free Medium (SFM) as non-adherent spheres similar to neurospheres or mammospheres.
  • The proportion of SP cells in cell spheres was significantly higher than that in cells grown as monolayers.
  • SP cells were both CCA positive and SP-C positive while non-SP cells were only SP-C positive.
  • Flow cytometric analysis of cell phenotyping showed that SP cells expressed CD133 and CD44, the common cell surface markers of cancer stem cells, while non-SP cells only expressed CD44.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SP cells existed in human lung adenocarcinoma cell lines and they could be further enriched by preliminary serum-free culture before FACS sorting.
  • SP cells possessed the properties of cancer stem cells.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Characterizing the clinical relevance of an embryonic stem cell phenotype in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • : 11001 Background: Cancer cells possess traits reminiscent of those ascribed to normal stem cells.
  • It is unclear whether these phenotypic similarities between normal/embryonic stem cells and mature tumor cells, specific to lung cancer, are a result of underlying biologic processes, such as specific molecular pathways and regulatory networks.
  • METHODS: Using a large cohort of lung cancer cell lines with associated gene expression data, genes associated with an embryonic stem cell identity were used to develop a 'signature' representative of embryonic stemness (ES) activity specific to lung adenocarcinoma.
  • The ES signature was applied to three independent early (stage I - IIIa) lung adenocarcinoma data sets (N = 634) with clinically annotated gene expression data.
  • RESULTS: Using Bayesian regression analysis, a 100 gene signature representative of ES activity in lung adenocarcinoma was developed and validated in a leave-one-out-analysis.
  • GSEA identified gene sets significantly represented in the ES signature: signature of neoplastic transformation, signature of undifferentiated cancer, BRCA pathway, and fibroblast serum response pathway, all associated with cancer invasiveness.
  • Adenocarcinomas with ES demonstrated increased activation of RAS (p = 0.0002), MYC (p = 0.0057), wound healing (angiogenesis) (p < 0.0001), chromosomal instability (p < 0.0001), and invasiveness (p < 0.0001) gene signatures.
  • Adenocarcinomas (N= 634) with ES had a decreased survival (p<0.04).
  • The ES signature was not prognostic in prostate, ovarian, or breast adenocarcinomas.
  • Lung tumors (N=634) and adenocarcinoma cell lines (N=31) with ES were more resistant to cisplatin (p<0.0001 and p=0.0063, respectively).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lung adenocarcinomas that share a common gene expression pattern with normal stem cells were associated with decreased survival and increased likelihood of resistance to cisplatin, indicating the aggressiveness of lung tumors with a stem cell phenotype.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] MicroRNA-based assay for differential diagnosis of mesothelioma.
  • Mesothelioma can be difficult to differentiate from other tumors in the lung or pleura such as primary lung adenocarcinoma presenting with pleural effusion or metastatic adenocarcinoma from extrathoracic sites.
  • We addressed the increasing need for accurate differential diagnosis of these tumors by developing a diagnostic assay based on expression levels of microRNAs, a family of small, non-coding RNAs whose tissue-specificity has proven applicability for identification of cancer tissue type and histology.
  • RESULTS: We identified microRNAs that are differentially expressed between mesothelioma, lung adenocarcinoma, and other confounding tumor types.
  • A diagnostic assay (miRview™ meso) was developed, that utilizes qRT-PCR measurement of a small set of microRNAs to differentiate between mesothelioma and non-mesothelioma samples.
  • CONCLUSIONS: MicroRNAs are emerging as effective cancer biomarkers.
  • A robust and simple assay based on the expression level of a few microRNA biomarkers can accurately differentiate mesothelioma from other possible tumors in the lung and pleura.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] EGFR and KRAS mutation status of lung adenocarcinomas in African Americans.
  • : 11065 Background: The 2004 discovery of the tyrosine kinase inhibitor-sensitizing mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) represents a major advance in the study and management of non-small cell lung cancer.
  • EGFR mutations occur almost exclusively in adenocarcinoma, and are more common in never smokers, women, and people born in East Asian (compared to Whites).
  • No comprehensive studies exist of EGFR and KRAS mutations in lung cancers from African-American patients.
  • METHODS: We collected formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded material from 121 resected lung adenocarcinomas from African-American patients for DNA extraction.
  • These data were compared to Memorial Sloan-Kettering data for EGFR and KRAS mutations in all resected adenocarcinomas in white patients.
  • When compared to data from Memorial Sloan-Kettering for White patients (81/273, 30%), the 17% rate of KRAS mutations in lung adenocarcinomas from African-Americans was significantly lower (p=0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first large series reporting results of mutation testing in lung adenocarcinoma specimens from African-Americans.
  • African-American patients are less likely than Whites to harbor KRAS mutations in their lung adenocarcinomas.

  • : 11066 Background: Circulating tumor cell (CTC), a surrogate of distant metastasis, and circulating endothelia cell (CEC), a surrogate of angiogenesis, are potentially useful in the diagnosis of malignant tumors, but clinical significance of CTC/CEC in primary lung cancer (LC) remains unclear.
  • RESULTS: In 42 (30.7%) of 137 LC cases, CTC in the peripheral blood was positive (CTC-count, more than 1 cell/7.5mL), and the maximum CTC-count was 62 cells.
  • In 11 (18.3%) of 145 cases with non-malignant (NM) diseases, CTC was also positive; however, in NM cases, CTC-count was 1 (cell/7.5mL) in most CTC-positive cases and the maximun CTC-count was 2.
  • Among LC cases, the incidence of case with CTC-positive (CTC-count, 1 or more) was highest in small cell carcinoma cases (7/10, 70.0%), followed by squamous cell carcinoma (9/22, 40.9%) and adenocarcinoma (23/94, 24.5%) cases; the incidence of CTC-positive case was significantly higher in stage IV cases (68.6%; p<0.001), but it should be noted that CTC was positive in 17.4% of stage I cases and 15.4% of stage II cases.

  • [Title] Primary chemotherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, or whole brain radiotherapy in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with asymptomatic brain metastases.
  • : e19063 Background: Approximately 25 to 30% of patients with lung cancer develop brain metastases at some stage and 12∼18% at the time of initial presentation.
  • Whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) has long been a mainstay of treatment of brain metastases.
  • Subset analysis of 110 adenocarcinoma patients showed that the median OS for patients treated with primary SRS was longer than those of primary WRBT (29.3m vs 17.7m p=0.01) or primary chemotherapy (29.3m vs 14.6m p=0.04).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that for NSCLC patients with asymptomatic brain metastases at first diagnosis, SRS rather than primary chemotherapy or WBRT might be considered as initial treatment, especially for patients with adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : e14575 Background: Tumoral Gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) receptors are potential targets for diagnosis and therapy using radiolabeled or cytotoxic GRP analogs.
  • GRP-receptor overexpression has been detected in cancer cells and, more recently, also in the vascular bed of selected tumors.
  • More information on vascular GRP-receptors in cancer is required to asses their potential for vascular targeting applications.
  • METHODS: Frequent human cancers from the breast (n=134), lung (n=57), prostate (n=50), kidney (n=32), colon (n=46), urinary tract (n=26) and biliary tract (n=23) were analyzed using in vitro GRP-receptor autoradiography on tissue sections with the <sup>125</sup>I-[Tyr<sup>4</sup>]-bombesin radioligand and/or the universal radioligand <sup>125</sup>I-[D-Tyr<sup>6</sup>, ß-Ala<sup>11</sup>, Phe<sup>13</sup>, Nle<sup>14</sup>]-bombesin(6-14).
  • RESULTS: Prevalence of vascular GRP-receptors is variable, ranging from 13% (prostate cancer) to 92% (urinary tract cancer).
  • Different tumor-types within a given site may have divergent prevalence of vascular GRP-receptors (e.g. lung: small cell cancer: 0%; adenocarcinoma: 59%; squamous carcinoma: 83%).
  • Also the vascular score varies widely, with highest score in urinary tract cancer (1.69), moderate scores in lung (0.91), colon (0.88), kidney (0.84) and biliary tract (0.69) cancers and low scores in breast (0.39) and prostate (0.14) cancers.
  • Normal non- neoplastic control tissues from these organs lack vascular GRP-receptors.

  • [Title] Frequency of carcinoma not otherwise specified (NOS) as a histologic diagnosis among non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cases between 1989 to 2006: An epidemiologic study from the California Cancer Registry.
  • We investigated the distribution of carcinoma NOS (not otherwise specified) among NSCLC cases in California.
  • METHODS: Retrospective population-based analysis of 175,298 NSCLC patients diagnosed histologically or cytologically from the statewide California Cancer Registry from 1989 to 2006.
  • RESULTS: Carcinoma NOS accounted for 22.2% of all NSCLC patients, was most commonly diagnosed cytologically (36.7%) and had the worst 5-year survival estimates (5.8%) and median OS (5 months) compared to other major histologies.
  • The proportion of carcinoma NOS was highest among stage 4 disease and increased significantly from 1989 to 2006 among all patients, both males and females, all 4 major ethnicities (Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic, and Asian), all age- categories, and all AJCC stages.
  • The percentage of the very elderly (80+) increased from 10.8% to 17.1% among all NSCLC patients and they had the highest percentages of carcinoma NOS and cytologically-diagnosed NSCLC among all age categories.
  • Among stage 4 patients, carcinoma NOS patients derived less survival benefit from chemotherapy than adenocarcinoma patients during the most recent period of diagnosis and Cox proportional hazards analysis indicated carcinoma NOS (vs. adenocarcinoma; HR = 1.061, 95% CI: 1.040- 1.083) and cytologically-diagnosed NSCLC (vs. histologically-diagnosed NSCLC, HR = 1.043, 95% CI: 1.024-1.062) were independent unfavorable prognostic factors for OS.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Carcinoma NOS was a common histologic diagnosis and was increasing in proportion among NSCLC in California from 1989 to 2006.

  • CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that SC pulmonary tumors have significantly greater uptake on PET/CT than AC tumors.
  • This finding may be helpful in the future when sufficient tissue cannot be obtained for pathological diagnosis or to identify the predominant pathology of mixed tumors.

  • : 11053 Background: Representing roughly 85% of all lung cancers, NSCLC is frequently diagnosed at an advanced stage and has a poor prognosis.
  • The distribution of cases according to time period of diagnosis and select patient and tumor characteristics was described for each histologic subtype (squamous; adenocarcinoma (bronchioloalveolar adenocarcinoma (BAC), non-BAC); large cell; and other/unknown).
  • RESULTS: Most recent period of diagnosis (1998-2003 versus 1988-1992) conferred a survival advantage across histologic subtypes, independent of gender, age, ethnicity/race, tumor grade, and uptake of surgery/radiation.
  • This was especially pronounced for those diagnosed with large cell tumors (adjusted hazard ratio (aHR): 0.76, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.71-0.82).
  • The influence of ethnicity/race also varied with histology: compared to Whites, American Indians/Alaskan Natives with squamous tumors and Blacks with large cell tumors had a poorer prognosis, whereas Asians/Pacific Islanders with either non-BAC or large cell tumors demonstrated superior survival.
  • Nonetheless, lung cancer remains a deadly disease, and the prognostic effect of demographic factors varies with histologic subtype.

  • [Title] Improving survival for metastatic non-small cell lung cancer: A SEER database analysis from 1990 to 2005.
  • : 8078 Background: Treatment of metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has evolved over the last decade with the increased use of third-generation chemotherapy agents, established benefits from second-line chemotherapy, and the development of targeted agents.
  • Demographic variables included period of diagnosis (1990-1993 or P1, 1994-1997 or P2, 1998-2001 or P3, and 2002-2005 or P4), age, gender, race, and histology.
  • Median age at presentation was 67 and most patients were male (58%), white (81%), and had adenocarcinoma (39%).
  • Predictive factors for improved survival in multivariate analyses included diagnostic period (p < 0.001), younger age (p < 0.0001), female gender (p < 0.0001), and non-black race (p < 0.0001).
  • After adjusting for demographic factors, there were no significant differences in OS between adenocarcinoma and squamous cell from P1 to P3 (1990-2001).
  • However, P4 showed a significant increase in OS for adenocarcinoma compared with squamous cell (p = 0.02).
  • The recent differences in outcomes based on histology observed in P4 may reflect the increased activity of newer therapies in adenocarcinoma compared with squamous cell, including gefitinib and erlotinib.

  • : e22216 Background: Early diagnosis in lung cancer could improve its treatment and, subsequently, its prognosis and survival.
  • The aim of this study was to find protein markers in bronchial fluid which could enable early diagnosis in NSCLC.
  • METHODS: We have included 96 patients with NSCLC diagnosed using bronchoscope (64 scamous/29 adenocarcinoma/3 others) and 49 consecutive patients with non pathological bronchoscope.
  • Resultant intensities in each group of patients (NSCLC/non pathological bronchoscope) were compared using T-Student method.
  • We calculated "fold change" of each spot as the ratio between mean intensity in NSCLC bronchoscopes samples and non pathological bronchoscopes samples.

  • : 7594 Background: About 50% of NSCLC patients (pts) will develop distant metastases following pulmonary resection.
  • Currently, apart from clinical stage at diagnosis, there are no reliable clinical factors to select high risk pts for adjuvant chemotherapy. miRNAs profiling is expected to indicate pts with aggressive disease and to provide prognostic information.
  • Confounding effect of NSCLC pathology heterogeneity justifies searching for prognostic miRNAs separately in SqCLC and adenocarcinoma.
  • METHODS: Fresh frozen tumor tissue was obtained from 30 SqCLC stage I-II pts during curative pulmonary resection.

  • We studied whether the Charlson Comorbidity Index (CMI), Cumulative Illness Rating Scale (CIRS), Kaplan Feinstein Index (KFI), and/or VA Comorbidity Scale (VA) independently predicted survival for NSCLC patients Methods: In an IRB approved protocol, the charts of 101 patients with Stage IIIA, IIIB or IV Non small cell lung cancer seen from 2004 through 2006 at a VA medical center were reviewed of whom 94 have already died.
  • RESULTS: Median (M) patient age was 69 years (range 51-88), the M ECOG PS was 1 (range 0-4); 13 (13%) had stage IIIA, 27 (26%) IIB and 62 (61%) IV.
  • The M number of treatments was 1 (range 0-6).
  • Histologies were adenocarcinoma in 48 (48%) pts, squamous cell in 37 (37%) pts, and other 17 (15%) pts.
  • The M survival was 207 days (range 4-1785 days).
  • The M albumin was 3.7 (range 1.9-5.3) and LDH 201 (range 104-1036).

  • [Title] Impact on disease-free survival of adjuvant erlotinib or gefitinib in patients with resected lung adenocarcinomas that harbor epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations.
  • : 7523 Background: Patients with stage IV adenocarcinoma whose tumors harbor EGFR mutations have high rates of response (∼ 75%) and prolonged progression free survival after EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) treatment.
  • To see if adjuvant treatment with EGFR TKI (gefitinib or erlotinib) improves DFS in patients with EGFR mutation NSCLC, we conducted a retrospective review of patients with resected lung adenocarcinoma harboring EGFR mutations, some of whom received EGFR TKIs postoperatively.
  • METHODS: With Institutional Review Board approval, clinical information was obtained on all patients with stage I-III lung adenocarcinoma harboring EGFR exon 19 or 21 mutations that underwent resection at MSKCC between May 2002 and August 2008.
  • RESULTS: We studied 150 patients (112 women, 38 men) with completely resected stage I-III lung adenocarcinoma whose resection specimens contained EGFR activating mutations in exon 19 or 21.
  • After controlling for stage, individuals who received adjuvant gefitinib or erlotinib had a better DFS (HR=0.38, 95%CI: 0.16-0.90) than the non-TKI group (p=0.03).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that the adjuvant use of either gefitinib or erlotinib improves DFS in patients with completely resected stage I -III lung adenocarcinomas with mutations in EGFR exons 19 and 21.

  • [Title] Characterization of adenocarcinoma of the lung in a familial adenomatous polyposis patient.
  • The incidence of several extracolonic tumors, such as duodenal carcinoma, is higher in familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) patients than in the general population, but there is little information about lung carcinoma in FAP.
  • A 43-year-old woman presented with a lung tumor 17 years after total colectomy for FAP.
  • Pathohistological analysis of the lung tumor demonstrated mixed adenocarcinoma consisting of a papillary adenocarcinoma component and a bronchioloalveolar carcinoma component.
  • The other APC allele in the lung carcinoma was not inactivated by somatic mutations, promoter methylation, or chromosomal deletion.
  • No somatic mutations in any of the coding regions of the p53 gene or in the mutation hot spot regions of the K-ras or EGFR genes were detected in the carcinoma.
  • The present results suggest that the chromosomal copy number alterations detected on SNP microarray were involved in the carcinogenesis of the adenocarcinoma of the lung in the present FAP patient.

  • [Title] Clonal selection of adenocarcinoma of the lung as determined by loss of heterozygosity.
  • Although the most frequently altered oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) have been recognized, the exact mechanisms responsible for the progression and phenotypic expression of carcinoma, particularly adenocarcinoma of the lung are uncertain.
  • Fifty-six cases of adenocarcinoma of the lung (11 bronchioloalveolar carcinoma [BAC], 25 stage 1, 20 stage 2) and paired 19 lymph node metastases (LNM) of stage 2 adenocarcinomas were analyzed for loss of heterozygosity (LOH).
  • LOH on chromosomes 1p (P = 0.0209) and 17p (P = 0.0274) was more frequently present in stage 1 adenocarcinomas than in BAC.
  • There was no significant difference between BAC, stage 1 and stage 2 adenocarcinoma in the frequency of LOH at individual chromosomal arms.
  • The pattern of LOH in LNM of stage 2 adenocarcinoma was similar to the primary tumor.
  • Overall fractional allelic loss (FAL) was significantly different between BAC and stage 1 invasive adenocarcinoma (P = 0.0013), and it was significantly higher in stage 1 adenocarcinoma than in stage 2 adenocarcinoma (P = 0.0062) and their LNM (P = 0.0001).
  • Stage 2 adenocarcinomas showed significantly higher overall FAL than their LNM (P = 0.022).
  • Our study failed to identify a single target gene responsible for progression of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • A trend towards lower overall FAL in advanced stage tumors and in their metastases suggests that clonal selection may play a role in lung adenocarcinoma progression.

  • The distinction between epithelioid mesothelioma and lung adenocarcinoma remains an important diagnostic challenge for surgical pathologists.
  • The aim of the present study was to select a limited and appropriate panel of antibodies that can differentiate between epithelioid mesothelioma and lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Specimens of 90 epithelioid mesotheliomas and 51 lung adenocarcinomas obtained from Japanese cases were examined using calretinin, WT1, AE1/AE3, CAM5.2, cytokeratin (CK) 5/6, vimentin, epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), thrombomodulin, CEA, CA19-9, and CA125.
  • In contrast, 33% of lung adenocarcinomas were positive for calretinin; 16% for WT1; 100% for AE1/AE3, CAM5.2, and EMA; 41% for CK 5/6; 47% for vimentin; 20% for thrombomodulin; 69% for mesothelin; 98% for CEA; 73% for CA19-9; and 80% for CA125.
  • For distinguishing between epithelioid mesothelioma and lung adenocarcinoma, the combination of CEA, calretinin and each WT1 or thrombomodulin was suggested to be the best panel of immunohistochemical markers.

  • OBJECTIVES: To investigate occupational risks of lung adenocarcinoma in Uruguay and to confirm a previously reported increased risk among butchers.
  • METHODS: We conducted a case-control study among men in four major hospitals in Montevideo, based on interviews to 338 cases of lung adenocarcinoma and 1014 hospital-based controls.
  • We calculated odds ratios (ORs) of lung adenocarcinoma for employment in 22 jobs, after adjustment for tobacco smoking and other potential confounders.
  • Long-term employment as mason, glass worker or textile worker resulted in an increased OR.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Occupational exposures seem to play a limited role in causing lung adenocarcinoma among men in Uruguay.

  • [Title] [Application of laser capture microdissection and surface-enhanced laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry to screen biomarkers for early diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma].
  • OBJECTIVE: To improve diagnostic methods to screen biomarkers for early diagnosis in lung adenocarcinoma by employing laser capture microdissection (LCM) and surface-enhanced laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (SELDI-TOF-MS) and support vector machine (SVM).
  • METHODS: Frozen sections of thickness 8 microm were made using 6 cases of fresh lung cancer tissues and 4 cases of matched normal lung tissues.
  • The homogeneous adenocarcinoma cells and normal cells were collected by LCM in each sample, and then SELDI profiles based on PBS II+SELDI-TOF-MS (IMAC protein chip) were analyzed using SVM.
  • RESULTS: High quality cell samples were obtained by LCM quickly and precisely from normal specimens and diseased tissues without interstitium, inflammation and necrosis.
  • Top ten of them were identified as candidate biomarkers; six proteins were significantly weakly expressed in lung cancer tissue compared to normal tissues, but the other four protein were over-expressed (P < 0.05).
  • Each of them can separate the lung cancer from normal samples with a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 100%.
  • The 3191 m/z was considered as disease marker of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: The method combined LCM with SELDI-TOF-MS may be able to screen potential biomarkers to distinguish lung cancer from healthy tissue with high sensitivity and specificity, which could improve early diagnosis for lung cancer.

  • [Title] Characterizing the cancer genome in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • The prospect of targeted therapies and the development of high-resolution, genome-wide approaches are now spurring systematic efforts to characterize cancer genomes.
  • Here we report a large-scale project to characterize copy-number alterations in primary lung adenocarcinomas.
  • Only six of these focal events are currently associated with known mutations in lung carcinomas.
  • On the basis of genomic and functional analyses, we identify NKX2-1 (NK2 homeobox 1, also called TITF1), which lies in the minimal 14q13.3 amplification interval and encodes a lineage-specific transcription factor, as a novel candidate proto-oncogene involved in a significant fraction of lung adenocarcinomas.
  • More generally, our results indicate that many of the genes that are involved in lung adenocarcinoma remain to be discovered.

  • [Title] His239Arg SNP of HRAD9 is associated with lung adenocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: It was previously reported that a functional human (h) Rad9 protein accumulated in the nuclei of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cells.
  • METHODS: The sequence of the HRAD9 was examined in tumor and peripheral normal lung tissues obtained from 50 lung adenocarcinoma patients during surgery.
  • RESULTS: No sequence alterations were detected in the HRAD9 gene, which was found to be normally transcribed in surgically resected lung carcinoma cells.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Whereas the capacity to produce a functional hRad9 protein was intact in lung adenocarcinoma cells, a nonsynonymous SNP of HRAD9 was detected that might be associated with the development of lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Transcription deregulation at the 15q25 locus in association with lung adenocarcinoma risk.
  • PURPOSE: We characterized the candidacy of the six candidate genes mapping in the chromosome 15q25 locus, which was previously reported as associated with lung cancer risk, and confirmed the locus association with lung cancer risk in an Italian population of lung adenocarcinoma patients and controls.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We did a quantitative analysis of mRNA levels of IREB2 (iron-responsive element-binding protein 2), LOC123688, PMSA4 [proteasome (prosome, macropain) subunit alpha type 4], CHRNB4 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic beta 4), CHRNA3 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 3), and CHRNA5 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 5) genes in paired normal lung and lung adenocarcinoma tissue, and an immunohistochemical localization of CHRNA3- and CHRNA5-encoded proteins.
  • We also examined the association of CHRNA5 D398N polymorphism with lung cancer risk and with CHRNA5 mRNA levels in the normal lung.
  • RESULTS: Expression analysis of the six candidate genes mapping in the lung cancer risk-associated chromosome 15q25 locus revealed a 30-fold up-regulation of the gene encoding the CHRNA5 subunit and a 2-fold down-regulation of the CHRNA3 subunit in lung adenocarcinoma as compared with the normal lung.
  • The carrier status of the 398N allele at the D398N polymorphism of the CHRNA5 gene was associated with lung adenocarcinoma risk (odds ratio, 1.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.2-2.0) in a population-based series of lung adenocarcinoma patients (n=467) and healthy controls (n=739).
  • Analysis of a family-based series of nonsmoker lung cancer cases (n=80) and healthy sib controls (n=80) indicated a similar trend.
  • In addition, the same D398N variation correlated with CHRNA5 mRNA levels in normal lung of adenocarcinoma patients.

  • [Title] Prognostic significance of OCT4 expression in adenocarcinoma of the lung.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to detect the presence of cancer stem-like cells with bronchioalveolar stem cells (BASCs) properties and investigate the clinicopathological role of expression of OCT4 as well as the correlation with clinical outcomes in adenocarcinoma of the lung.
  • METHODS: Specimens of 112 cases of Stage IB-IIIA lung adenocarcinoma after radical surgery were collected from June 1999 to June 2002.
  • The putative cancer stem cells in tumor sections were visualized immunofluorescently by using the antibodies against three bronchioalveolar stem cells markers: surfactant protein C (SPC), Clara cell secretary protein (CCSP) and Octamer-4 (OCT4).
  • Cancer stem-like cells with bronchioalveolar stem cell properties in human lung adenocarcinoma were subdivided into two phenotypes: OCT4(+)BASC (SPC(+)CCSP(+)OCT4(+)) and OCT4(-)BASC (SPC(+)CCSP(+)OCT4(-)).
  • RESULTS: Cancer cells with CCSP(+)SPC(+)BASC phenotype were detected in 107 cases, 80 cases with OCT4(+)BASC phenotype (SPC(+)CCSP(+)OCT4(+)) and 27 cases with SPC(+)CCSP(+)OCT4(-).
  • The pattern of survival curves shows the expected trend of decreasing survival with increasing stage at diagnosis (P = 0.015) and with OCT4(+)BASC expression (P = 0.019).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The cancer cells with bronchioalveolar stem cells phenotype are detectable in adenocarcinoma of the lung and the expression of self-renewal regulatory gene OCT4 in these cells indicated the worse clinical outcomes.

  • [Title] Apoptosis and cell proliferation correlated with tumor grade in patients with lung adenocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Apoptosis and cell proliferation in patients with adenocarcinoma of the lung have not been well described with relation to fine-needle aspiration biopsies (FNABs).
  • To investigate the contribution of apoptosis to the growth of adenocarcinoma of the lung, both apoptosis and cell proliferation were analysed for correlation with the grade of the tumor.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty tumors from 50 patients with adenocarcinoma of the lung were studied.
  • The detection of DNA fragments in situ using the terminal deoxyribonucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP-digoxigenin nick-end labeling (TUNEL) assay was applied to investigate active cell death (apoptosis) and the MIB-1 antigen was used to investigate cell proliferation.
  • RESULTS: The TUNEL indices were 0.55±0.09, 0.90±0.33 and 3.1±0.99 in well-, moderately and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the lung respectively.
  • The differences in both TUNEL and MIB-1 labeling indices were significant between well-, moderately and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the lung and a positive correlation was found between the TUNEL indices and the MIB-1 indices.
  • CONCLUSION: Apoptosis (cell death) and cell proliferation increases as the grade of differentiation decreases in adenocarcinoma of the lung, suggesting a rapid turn over of the tumor cells in tumors with a lower grade of differentiation.

  • [Title] Prognostic value of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma component in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • BAC is a common pattern in conventional lung adenocarcinoma.
  • As a result, it was difficult to evaluate the prognosis on this type of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Though the 1999 WHO classification of BAC provides a useful framework, it does not provide detailed enough information to predict prognosis in lung adenocarcinomas with BAC feature.
  • The aim of this study was to address the prognostic value of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (BAC) component in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Ninety-one consecutive surgically treated patients with adenocarcinoma exhibiting various degrees of BAC features and complete follow-up records were retrospectively studied.
  • In lung adenocarcinoma, the BAC component may prove to be useful to predict the outcome of the patients, and the percentage of BAC pattern and pathological stage appear to be two independent prognostic factors.

  • [Title] Tumorigenic role of orphan nuclear receptor NR0B1 in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Cancer stem cells are a limited population of tumor cells that are thought to reconstitute whole tumors.
  • The Hoechst dye exclusion assay revealed that tumors are composed of both a main population and a side population of cells, which are rich in cancer stem cells.
  • NR0B1 is an orphan nuclear receptor that is expressed to a greater extent in the side population, as compared with the main population, of a lung adenocarcinoma cell line.
  • In this study, we investigated the role of NR0B1 in lung adenocarcinoma cells.
  • Reduction of NR0B1 expression levels in lung adenocarcinoma cell lines resulted in vulnerability to anti-cancer drugs and decreased abilities for invasion, in vitro colony formation, and tumorigenicity in non-obese diabetic/severe compromised immunodeficient mice.
  • When 193 cases of lung adenocarcinoma were immunohistochemically examined, higher levels of NR0B1 expression correlated with higher rates of lymph node metastasis and recurrence.
  • In clinical samples, NR0B1 expression levels inversely correlated to the proportion of methylated CpG sequences around the transcription initiation site of the NR0B1 gene, suggesting the epigenetic control of NR0B1 transcription in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • In conclusion, NR0B1 might play a role in the malignant potential of lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Overexpression of eukaryotic initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) and its clinical significance in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • However, the clinical significance of eIF4E expression in lung adenocarcinoma (AdC) remains unclear.
  • The aim of this study was to explore the expression of eIF4E gene in lung adenocarcinoma cell lines and tissues, and to investigate its relationship with clinical characteristics and prognosis of patients with lung adenocarcinoma in combination with p53 status.
  • METHODS: Semi-quantitative RT-PCR and Western blotting assays were performed to detect the expression of eIF4E mRNA and protein in normal human lung epithelial cell line, immortalized lung epithelial cell line and lung adenocarcinoma cell lines.
  • Additionally, the expression of eIF4E gene was also detected in 32 cases of lung adenocarcinoma tissues, tumor adjacent tissues and tumor surrounding normal tissues by the same methods.
  • Moreover, expression of eIF4E and the status of p53 in specimens from 76 patients with lung adenocarcinoma were examined by immunohistochemical staining.
  • Correlations between eIF4E expression and clinicopathological features, and the effect of eIF4E on prognosis of patients with lung adenocarcinoma were evaluated by statistical analysis.
  • RESULTS: The levels of eIF4E mRNA and protein expression were higher in lung adenocarcinoma cell lines and in telomerase-immortalized lung epithelial cell line than in the normal lung epithelial cell line.
  • Moreover, the higher levels of eIF4E expression were correlated with poorer differentiation (P=0.012), higher pathological stage (P<0.0001) and clinical stage (P=0.002), a higher incidence of hematogenous metastasis (P=0.007) and cancer-related death (P=0.036).
  • CONCLUSION: High eIF4E expression was correlated with poorer overall survival in lung adenocarcinoma patients. eIF4E might be a better clinical marker predicting the prognosis for lung adenocarcinoma patients in combination with p53 status.

  • [Title] Variation in TP63 is associated with lung adenocarcinoma susceptibility in Japanese and Korean populations.
  • Lung cancer is the most common cause of death from cancer worldwide, and its incidence is increasing in East Asian and Western countries.
  • To identify genetic factors that modify the risk of lung adenocarcinoma, we conducted a genome-wide association study in a Japanese cohort, with replication in two independent studies in Japanese and Korean individuals, in a total of 2,098 lung adenocarcinoma cases and 11,048 controls.
  • The combined analyses identified two susceptibility loci for lung adenocarcinoma: TERT (rs2736100, combined P = 2.91 × 10⁻¹¹), odds ratio (OR) = 1.27) and TP63 (rs10937405, combined P = 7.26 × 10⁻¹²), OR = 1.31).
  • Our results suggest that genetic variation in TP63 may influence susceptibility to lung adenocarcinoma in East Asian populations.

  • The aim of this study was to investigate the role of pirh2 (p53-induced RING-H2) protein in the proliferation, apoptosis and cell cycle control of the lung cancer cell line A549.
  • Cell proliferation was assessed by cell counting kit-8 (CCK-8).
  • Cell cycle control and apoptosis were analyzed by flow cytometry.
  • The inhibition of pirh2 expression by siRNA (psiRNA-pirh2) resulted in reduced cell proliferation and increased apoptosis.
  • Taken together, the inhibition of pirh2 expression in the lung adenocarcinoma cell line A549 resulted in reduced tumor cell growth via the inhibition of cell proliferation, the activation of apoptosis and the interruption of cell cycle transition.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The utility of napsin-A in the identification of primary and metastatic lung adenocarcinoma among cytologically poorly differentiated carcinomas.
  • BACKGROUND: New developments in the treatment of lung cancer have necessitated the further histologic and cytologic subtyping of nonsmall cell lung carcinomas.
  • Thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) long has served as the predominant marker for demonstrating lung origin.
  • However, it is also expressed in a variety of other tumors, particularly neuroendocrine neoplasms and, to a much lesser degree, squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • Napsin-A, which is expressed in lung tissue, is a relatively new marker for lung adenocarcinoma.
  • In this study, the authors examined the utility of napsin-A compared with TTF-1 in cytologic specimens of primary and metastatic, poorly differentiated lung adenocarcinomas.
  • METHODS: The archives of the Department of Pathology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital were searched for cytologic cases of poorly differentiated lung adenocarcinoma that were histologically confirmed.
  • In total, 75 patients (cases) along with 95 controls were included, each of whom had adequate cell block material for TTF-1 and napsin-A staining.
  • Tissue microarrays of lung adenocarcinoma also were examined.
  • Napsin-A was not detected in small cell carcinomas or in other carcinomas of nonlung origin except for renal cell carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although TTF-1 had a higher sensitivity, napsin-A was useful as a surrogate marker when encountering a poorly differentiated lung adenocarcinoma or an unknown primary tumor, particularly in cytologic specimens and difficult cases.

  • We diagnosed retroperitoneal hemorrhage due to bilateral adrenal gland metastasis from lung adenocarcinoma with adrenal insufficiency.
  • Adrenal metastases most commonly originate from a primary lung tumor, followed by stomach, esophagus and liver/bile ducts.
  • Clinically significant adrenal hemorrhage by metastasis is exceedingly rare and non-specific symptoms, such as abdominal, chest or back pain, nausea and vomiting, confusion, weakness, hypotension, shock and high fever, are often observed in these patients.
  • We present a case of massive retroperitoneal hemorrhage and adrenal insufficiency due to adrenal gland metastasis from adenocarcinoma of lung.

  • Lung adenocarcinoma with a micropapillary pattern has recently been described, but its biological behavior is as yet uncertain.
  • In this article we present a clinicopathological study of lung adenocarcinoma with micropapillary morphology.
  • We selected 25 patients with lung adenocarcinoma with micropapillary morphology from the 2001-2004 pathology files (age range 54 to 81 years; mean 64.5 years).
  • Micropapillary carcinoma is predominantly located at the periphery of the tumor nodule or mass and occurs irrespective of the subtype of the adenocarcinoma.
  • Four cases showed intensive invasive growth such as micropapillary adenocarcinoma of the breast and 21 showed alveolar type morphology with piling-up of the neoplastic cells with or without stromal invasion.
  • Regarding clinical outcome, 14 patients were alive without disease, 5 were alive with disease, and 5 died of the lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Lung micropapillary carcinoma of breast type may behave more aggressively than the alveolar type.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Gene expression signature predicts recurrence in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: Improving outcomes for early-stage lung cancer is a major research focus at present because a significant proportion of stage I patients develop recurrent disease within 5 years of curative-intent lung resection.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: To identify a gene signature predictive of recurrence in primary lung adenocarcinoma, we analyzed gene expression profiles in a training set of 48 node-negative tumors (stage I-II), comparing tumors from cases who remained disease-free for a minimum of 36 months with those from cases whose disease recurred within 18 months of complete resection.
  • RESULTS: Cox proportional hazards modeling with leave-one-out cross-validation identified a 54-gene signature capable of predicting risk of recurrence in two independent validation cohorts of 55 adenocarcinomas [log-rank P=0.039; hazard ratio (HR), 2.2; 95% confidence interval (95% CI), 1.1-4.7] and 40 adenocarcinomas (log-rank P=0.044; HR, 3.3; 95% CI, 1.4-7.9).
  • In a subset of earliest stage adenocarcinomas, generally expected to have good outcome, the signature predicted samples with significantly poorer survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We describe a 54-gene signature that predicts the risk of recurrent disease independently of tumor stage and which therefore has potential to refine clinical prognosis for patients undergoing resection for primary adenocarcinoma of the lung.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Aberrant methylation of IL-12Rbeta2 gene in lung adenocarcinoma cells is associated with unfavorable prognosis.
  • BACKGROUND: Interleukin-12 receptor beta2 (IL-12Rbeta2) knock-out mice develop lung adenocarcinoma, and epigenetic silencing by CpG methylation leads to loss of this gene in B-cell malignancies.
  • The aim of this study was to determine whether IL-12Rbeta2 methylation is a common feature in human lung cancer.
  • METHODS: We examined mRNA expression of IL-12Rbeta2 in lung cancer cell lines, and normal bronchial, and tracheal epithelial cells using RT-PCR, and we examined the methylation status of IL-12Rbeta2 in primary lung cancers.
  • RESULTS: Loss of expression was found in 10 of 13 (77%) NSCLC cell lines, and 2 of 5 (40%) SCLC cell lines compared with normal bronchial or tracheal cells.
  • Treatment of 11 expression-negative cell lines with a demethylating agent restored expression in all cases.
  • IL-12Rbeta2 methylation correlated with poorer prognosis in lung adenocarcinomas (hazard ratio = 2.33, P = 0.0059).
  • CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that epigenetic silencing of IL-12Rbeta2 is a frequent event in lung cancers.
  • Aberrant methylation of this gene seems to be a useful predictor of long-term outcome for adenocarcinoma of the lung.

  • [Title] Usefulness of CDK5RAP3, CCNB2, and RAGE genes for the diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • We used oligonucleotide microarrays with probe sets to 22,283 genes to analyze the gene expression profile of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Cancerous and noncancerous tissue samples were obtained from 23 patients with stage I or II lung cancer; 18 tissue pairs and 5 cancerous tissues.
  • We analyzed CDK5RAP3 and CCNB2, which are involved in cell cycle progression, and RAGE.
  • The combined expression of the 2 cell cycle genes was found to be statistically significant for differentiating between cancerous and noncancerous tissues.
  • We therefore conclude that these 3 genes may be used as a very reliable biomarker of lung adenocarcinoma.

  • Clinicopathological characteristics and survival outcome were reviewed and compared between patients with BAC and adenocarcinoma.
  • Lymph node status, clinical symptoms, CT appearance and expression of FAK were different between BAC and adenocarcinoma.
  • The overall survival of BAC was better than that of adenocarcinoma.
  • In patients with FAK(-), the overall survival was not different between BAC and adenocarcinoma.
  • In patients with adenocarcinoma, the overall survival was better for FAK(-) compared with FAK(+).
  • Expression of PTEN had a prognostic significance in patients with BAC and adenocarcinoma.
  • BAC and adenocarcinoma have different clinicopathological presentations.
  • Expression of FAK has some effect on such differences and affects survival of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Expression of PTEN can predict outcome of resected lung adenocarcinoma and BAC.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Identification of putative oncogenes in lung adenocarcinoma by a comprehensive functional genomic approach.
  • We used a functional genomic approach that integrated simultaneous genomic and transcript microarray, proteomics, and tissue microarray analyses to directly identify putative oncogenes in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • We first identified 183 genes with increases in both genomic copy number and transcript in six lung adenocarcinoma cell lines.
  • Next, we used two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry to identify 42 proteins that were overexpressed in the cancer cells relative to normal cells.
  • Specific inhibition of EEF1A2 and KCIP-1 expression with siRNA in the four cell lines tested suppressed proliferation and induced apoptosis.
  • Parallel fluorescence in situ hybridization and immunohistochemical analyses of EEF1A2 and KCIP-1 in tissue microarrays from patients with lung adenocarcinoma showed that gene amplification was associated with high protein expression for both genes and that protein overexpression was related to tumor grade, disease stage, Ki-67 expression, and a shorter survival of patients.
  • The amplification of EEF1A2 and KCIP-1 and the presence of overexpressed protein in tumor samples strongly suggest that these genes could be oncogenes and hence potential targets for diagnosis and therapy in lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Dissimilarity in gene expression profiles of lung adenocarcinoma in Japanese men and women.
  • BACKGROUND: Although clinical differences in lung cancer between men and women have been noted, few studies have examined the sex dissimilarity using gene expression analysis.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the different molecular carcinogenic mechanisms involved in lung cancers in Japanese men and women.
  • METHODS: Patients who received surgery for stage I lung adenocarcinoma were included.
  • RESULTS: In a microarray analysis of tissue from 13 men and 6 women, 12 genes were under-expressed and 24 genes were overexpressed in lung adenocarcinoma in women compared with men.
  • Genes related to cell cycle were present in underexpressed genes, and genes related to apoptosis, ubiquitination, and metabolism were observed in overexpressed genes.
  • CONCLUSION: Thirty-six genes that characterize lung adenocarcinoma by sex were selected.
  • This information may contribute to the development of novel diagnostic techniques and treatment modalities that consider sex differences in lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Stromal macrophage expressing CD204 is associated with tumor aggressiveness in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Tumor tissue is composed of variable numbers of cancer cells and stromal cells, and tumor-associated macrophages are recruited into cancer-induced stroma and produce a specific microenvironment.
  • METHODS: To investigate whether CD204-positive macrophages reflect tumor aggressiveness in adenocarcinoma of the lung, we investigated the relationships between the numbers of CD204-positive stromal macrophages and both clinicopathological features and outcome in 170 consecutive resected cases.
  • We evaluated associations between the levels of expression of the cytokines IL-6, IL-10, IL-12a, IL-12b, M-colony-stimulating factor, IFN-gamma-., and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 in cancer tissue and the numbers of CD204-positive macrophages.
  • CONCLUSION: These findings demonstrated that CD204-positive macrophages clearly reflect the tumor-promoting phenotype of tumor-associated macrophages in lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Upregulation of SOX9 in lung adenocarcinoma and its involvement in the regulation of cell growth and tumorigenicity.
  • PURPOSE: SOX9 is an important transcription factor required for development and has been implicated in several types of cancer.
  • However, SOX9 has never been linked to lung cancer to date.
  • Here, we show that SOX9 expression is upregulated in lung adenocarcinoma and show how it is associated with cancer cell growth.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Data mining with five microarray data sets containing 490 clinical samples, quantitative reverse transcription-PCR validation assay in 57 independent samples, and immunohistochemistry assay with tissue microarrays containing 170 lung tissue cores were used to profile SOX9 mRNA and protein expression.
  • Short interference RNA suppression of SOX9 in cell lines was used to scrutinize functional role(s) of SOX9 and associated molecular mechanisms.
  • RESULTS: SOX9 mRNA and protein were consistently overexpressed in the majority of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Knockdown of SOX9 in lung adenocarcinoma cell lines resulted in marked decrease of adhesive and anchorage-independent growth in concordance with the upregulation of p21 (CDKN1A) and downregulation of CDK4.
  • In agreement with higher SOX9 expression level in lung adenocarcinoma, the p21 mRNA level was significantly lower in tumors than that in normal tissues, whereas the opposite was true for CDK4, supporting the notion that SOX9 negatively and positively regulated p21 and CDK4, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that SOX9 is a new hallmark of lung adenocarcinoma, in which SOX9 might contribute to gain of tumor growth potential, possibly acting through affecting the expression of cell cycle regulators p21 and CDK4.

  • OBJECTIVE: To study the initial findings of lung adenocarcinoma revealed by computed tomography (CT) scanning and observe tumor progression and elucidate appropriate follow-up schedule of tumor diagnosis via CT findings of suspected lung adenocarcinoma.
  • The histological classifications were evaluated according to the criteria of Noguchi et al (Cancer 1995;75:2844-2852).
  • RESULT: The initial appearances of lung adenocarcinoma were divided into 4 types:.
  • Bubble-like appearance displayed characteristic CT findings and tended to increase over the years from the time of initial diagnosis, and we therefore tended to consider them as old inflammatory lesions.
  • Scar-like lesions tended to exist mainly in the lungs already damaged by lung fibrosis and/or emphysema and therefore were difficult to detect on initial CT scans.
  • CONCLUSION: We categorized 4 types of initial findings of lung adenocarcinomas detected by CT.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prognostic significance of carbonic anhydrase IX expression by cancer-associated fibroblasts in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Cancer tissue is comprised of cancer cells and several types of stromal cells, including cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs).
  • Carbonic anhydrase (CA) IX has been used as an endogenous hypoxia marker, and although its expression by cancer cells has been reported to be associated with a poor outcome in a board range of tumors, to the authors' knowledge, the biologic significance of its expression by CAFs remains unclear.
  • METHODS: The authors investigated CA IX expression by CAFs and cancer cells immunohistochemically in 158 consecutive resected cases of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • RESULTS: CA IX was expressed by CAFs in 39 (24.7%) of the 158 cases and by cancer cells in 40 (25.3%) cases.
  • A univariate analysis and the log-rank test demonstrated a significant association between CA IX expression by CAFs (P = .006 and P = .0052, respectively) and by cancer cells (P = .020 and P = .0179, respectively) with lower survival rate.
  • A multivariate analysis of these 2 factors indicated a statistically significant association between CA IX expression by CAFs and a lower survival rate (hazards ratio [HR], 1.797; P = .032), but not between expression by cancer cells and lower survival rate (HR, 1.561; P = .102).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The findings of the current study indicate that CA IX expression by CAFs was a better predictor of outcome than CA IX expression by cancer cells and provides new insights into the biologic significance of CAFs in the hypoxic microenvironment of the lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cytologic diagnosis of pulmonary adenocarcinoma with micropapillary pattern: does it correlate with the histologic findings?
  • Micropapillary adenocarcinoma is associated with poor-prognosis in several organs including the lung.
  • The presence of small tight balls of neoplastic cells devoid of fibrovascular core in cytological preparations (micropapillary tufts) has been described as characteristic of micropapillary adenocarcinoma.
  • In the lung, however, this criterion has not been validated.
  • The cytological material of 46 cases of histologically proven pulmonary adenocarcinoma with a micropapillary component was compared to 33 cases with no micropapillary component to determine the specificity of micropapillary tufts for the histologic diagnosis of micropapillary adenocarcinoma.
  • Other histologic patterns of invasive pulmonary adenocarcinomas (acinar, papillary, and solid) were also compared with patterns of neoplastic cell aggregates in cytological preparations.
  • The positive predictive value for the cytologic diagnosis of a micropapillary component in lung adenocarcinomas was of 64%.
  • Therefore, the detection of micropapillary tufts in cytology is not specific for the diagnosis of a pulmonary micropapillary adenocarcinoma in the lung.

  • [Title] Angiogenin is involved in lung adenocarcinoma cell proliferation and angiogenesis.
  • It was found in the present study that 67 out of 100 lung adenocarcinomas exhibited angiogenin nuclear expression, and this nuclear expression correlated with vascular and pleural invasion as well as positive lymph node metastasis.
  • ELISA, real-time qPCR and immunocytochemical staining demonstrated that adenoviral-vector based siRNA decreased angiogenin mRNA level and protein secretion, and inhibited angiogenin nuclear expression in A549 cells, resulting in marked inhibition on ribosomal RNA transcription, in vitro cell proliferation, soft agar colony formation, and xenograft tumor proliferation and angiogenesis.
  • Based on these data, we concluded that angiogenin nuclear expression played a dual role in the growth of lung adenocarcinoma with respect to cancer cell proliferation and angiogenesis.

  • [Title] Evolving concepts in the pathology and computed tomography imaging of lung adenocarcinoma and bronchioloalveolar carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: To review recent advances in pathology and computed tomography (CT) of lung adenocarcinoma and bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (BAC).
  • METHODS: A pathology/CT review panel of pathologists and radiologists met during a November 2004 International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer/American Society of Clinical Oncology consensus workshop in New York.
  • The purpose was to determine if existing data was sufficient to propose modification of criteria for adenocarcinoma and BAC as newly published in the 2004 WHO Classification of Lung Tumors, and to address the pathologic/radiologic concept of diffuse/multicentric BAC.
  • Most lung adenocarcinomas with a BAC pattern are not pure BAC, but rather adenocarcinoma, mixed subtype with invasive patterns.
  • The percent of BAC versus invasive components in lung adenocarcinomas appears to be prognostically important.
  • While recognition of a BAC component is possible, the diagnosis of BAC with exclusion of invasive adenocarcinoma cannot be made by small biopsy or cytology specimens.
  • CONCLUSION: There is a need to work toward a mutual understanding and consensus between pathologists, clinicians, and researchers with the use of the term BAC versus adenocarcinoma.
  • Hopefully, this work will allow definition of a category of adenocarcinoma, mixed subtype with predominant BAC/minimal invasion and a favorable prognosis.

  • [Title] Clinicopathological implications of EpCAM expression in adenocarcinoma of the lung.
  • BACKGROUND: The frequency of epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) expression was investigated in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells and human tissues, and its clinicopathological significance in adenocarcinoma of the lung was evaluated.
  • EpCAM protein expression was evaluated in 234 adenocarcinoma tissues using immunohistochemistry.
  • EpCAM overexpression was detected in 120/234 (51.3%) surgically resected adenocarcinoma tissues.
  • EpCAM overexpression occurred significantly more frequently in adenocarcinoma than in bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (p=0.02).
  • CONCLUSION: These findings suggest EpCAM plays a role in the carcinogenesis of adenocarcinoma of the lung and might provide a promising molecule for targeted therapy in NSCLC.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Caveolin-1 is a novel immunohistochemical marker to differentiate epithelioid mesothelioma from lung adenocarcinoma.
  • There is difficulty in the accurate diagnosis of mesothelioma and its differentiation from lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Therefore, the use of a immunohistochemical panel that includes both positive and negative mesothelial markers has become a general rule for its accurate diagnosis.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: An immunohistochemical study of 80 cases of epithelioid mesothelioma and 80 cases of lung adenocarcinoma was performed for the analysis of the expression of Cav-1 and other markers.
  • In contrast, only six cases (7.5%) of lung adenocarcinoma showed focal Cav-1 expression in the cytoplasm of the tumour cells.
  • The sensitivity and specificity of Cav-1 expression for the differentiation of epithelioid mesothelioma from lung adenocarcinoma were 100 and 92.5%, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cav-1 is a novel immunohistochemical marker for the differentiation of epithelioid mesothelioma from lung adenocarcinoma.

  • Differential protein expression profiles in the serum samples from patients with lung adenocarcinoma may be associated with glycosylation during cancer development.
  • In this study, we used various glycoproteomic approaches to investigate the different glycoproteomic profiles of human normal and lung adenocarcinoma serum samples and to investigate putative altered glycoprotein biomarkers.
  • We enriched for glycoproteins in the serum samples using WGA lectin affinity and then performed co-immunoprecipitation with anti-haptoglobin and 2-DE, 2-D difference in-gel electrophoresis and MS analyses.
  • In addition, three up-regulated glycoproteins (adiponectin, cerulolasmin and glycosylphosphatidyl-inositol-80) and two down-regulated glycoproteins (cyclin H and Fyn) that were found to be correlated with lung cancer development were validated by Western blot analysis.
  • We suggest that these altered glycoproteins may be useful as biomarkers for lung cancer development and progression.

  • [Title] Association between the expression of chemokine receptors CCR7 and CXCR3, and lymph node metastatic potential in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • Chemokines and their receptors are essential for leukocyte trafficking, and are also involved in cancer metastasis to specific organs.
  • Although the migration of tumor cells into the lymph nodes is an important aspect of cancer, the processes involved are poorly understood.
  • Chemokine receptors CCR7 and CXCR3 have been shown to play an important role in tumor cell migration and lymph node metastasis.
  • Therefore, the assessment of chemokine receptor expression on lung adenocarcinomas may improve the prediction of the spread of this carcinoma to the lymph nodes.
  • In this study, we examined the expression and function of these two chemokine receptors (CCR7 and CXCR3) in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • By using flow cytometry, they were detected in all of the lung adenocarcinoma cell lines examined.
  • In clinical lung adenocarcinoma samples, we found the expression of CCR7 and CXCR3 in 65 and 90% cases, respectively, most of which had lymph node metastasis.
  • These results suggest that the activation of CCR7 and CXCR3 with their ligands preferentially stimulates lung adenocarcinoma metastasis to the draining lymph nodes.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [BAG family gene and its relationship with lung adenocarcinoma susceptibility].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: BAG genes (Bcl-2-associated athanogene) belong to a recently discovered multifunctional anti-apoptosis gene family that regulate various physiological processes which include apoptosis, tumorigenesis, neural differentiation, stress response and cell cycle and so on.
  • The aim of this study is to explore the association of the BAG family gene expression status with the susceptibility of lung adenocarcinoma.
  • METHODS: The gene expression data of BAG family genes from 29 cases of lung adenocarcinoma tissues and matched pericancerous lung tissues were generated by microarray chips.
  • Cox regression was used to analyze the association between the expression of BAG family genes and the susceptibility of lung adenocarcinoma and the results were verified by GEO database.
  • RESULTS: The expression levels of BAG-1, BAG-2, BAG-5 in cancer tissues were significantly downregulated compared with matched pericancerous lung tissues and were protective factors of lung adenocarcinoma (P < 0.05, OR < 1); while the expression level of BAG-4 in cancer tissues were remarkably upregulated compared with the matched pericancerous lung tissues and was risk factor of lung adenocarcinoma (P < 0.05, OR > 1).
  • CONCLUSIONS: BAG-1, BAG-2, BAG-5 might be the potential protective factors while BAG-4 is possible risk factor of lung adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Genomic aberrations in lung adenocarcinoma in never smokers.
  • BACKGROUND: Lung cancer in never smokers would rank as the seventh most common cause of cancer death worldwide.
  • METHODS AND FINDINGS: We performed high-resolution array comparative genomic hybridization analysis of lung adenocarcinoma in sixty never smokers and identified fourteen new minimal common regions (MCR) of gain or loss, of which five contained a single gene (MOCS2, NSUN3, KHDRBS2, SNTG1 and ST18).
  • NSD1 and FUS are oncogenes hitherto not known to be associated with lung cancer.
  • Other cancer genes present in aberrations included ARNT, BCL9, CDK4, CDKN2B, EGFR, ERBB2, MDM2, MDM4, MET, MYC and KRAS.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The present study has uncovered new aberrations containing cancer genes.
  • Multiple genetic pathways defined by gains of MYC, deletions of RB1 and WRN or gains on 7p and 7q are involved in lung adenocarcinoma in never smokers.

  • [Title] Association of p16 homozygous deletions with clinicopathologic characteristics and EGFR/KRAS/p53 mutations in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: The p16 gene is frequently inactivated in lung adenocarcinoma.
  • In particular, homozygous deletions (HD) have been frequently detected in cell lines; however, their frequency and specificity is not well-established in primary tumors.
  • The purpose of this study was to elucidate the prevalence and the timing for the occurrence of p16 HDs in lung adenocarcinoma progression in vivo.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Multiple ligation-dependent probe amplification was used for the detection of p16 HDs in 28 primary small-sized lung adenocarcinomas and 22 metastatic lung adenocarcinomas to the brain.
  • Cancer cells were isolated from primary adenocarcinoma specimens by laser capture microdissection.
  • HDs were detected with similar frequencies (17-29%) among adenocarcinomas with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations, with KRAS mutations, and without EGFR/KRAS mutations, and with similar frequencies (22-28%) between adenocarcinomas with and without p53 mutations.
