Background Exposure to cigarette smoke has been shown to lead to vascular remodelling. Computed tomography (CT) imaging measures of vascular pruning have been associated with pulmonary vascular disease, an important morbidity associated with smoking. In this study we compare CT-based measures of distal vessel loss to histological vascular and parenchymal changes. Methods A retrospective review of 80 patients who had undergone lung resection identified patients with imaging appropriate for three-...

Background Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive and fatal lung disease with limited response to currently available therapies. Alveolar type II (ATII) cells act as progenitor cells in the adult lung, contributing to alveolar repair during pulmonary injury. However, in IPF, ATII cells die and are replaced by fibroblasts and myofibroblasts. In previous preclinical studies, we demonstrated that ATII-cell intratracheal transplantation was able to reduce pulmonary fibrosis. The main o...

Background There is no international consensus on optimal follow-up schedules and which supplementary tests should be used after resection of a primary melanoma. Objective We sought to analyze the performance of the follow-up components and identify procedures that detect melanoma metastasis earlier. Methods This was a prospective cohort from 290 consecutive patients given a diagnosis of stage IIB, IIC, and III melanoma. Patients were followed up with an intensive protocol based on imaging studi...

Abstract Aim To establish the usefulness of dual time-point PET/CT imaging in determining the response to radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of solitary lung metastases from gastrointestinal cancer. Materials and methods This prospective study included 18 cases (3 female, 15 male, mean age 71 ± 15 yrs) with solitary lung metastases from malignant digestive tract tumors candidates for RFA. PET/CT images 1 h after injection of 4.07 MBq/kg of 18 F-FDG (standard images) were performed at baseline, 1 mont...

Background Giant cell arteritis (GCA) may be complicated by aortic dilatation/aneurysm (aortic structural damage; ASD), which may lead to life-threatening events. In GCA patients, ASD occurs 17.3 times more frequently than in the general population, affecting up to 33.3% of patients after long term follow-up 1 . ASD is in most cases a delayed complication and its pathophysiology is unclear. Necropsy/surgery specimens from patients subjected to standard treatment and control may reveal persistent...

Background Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a granulomatous vasculitis preferentially targeting the carotid and vertebral artery branches. Aortic involvement is common and may lead to severe complications such as aortic dilatation/aneurysm or dissection 1 . While small necropsy studies detected histopathologically-proven aortic inflammation in more than 90% of patients, aortic wall thickening suggesting aortitis is detected in 65% of patients using CTA at diagnosis 2 . We hypothesized that histolog...

3048 Background: No treatments are available for patients (pts) with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) that progresses after all approved therapies. Autologous tumor lysate dendritic cell vaccine (ADC) has T-cell stimulatory capacity and therefore potential antitumor activity. We designed a phase II randomized trial of ADC plus BSC (arm A) compared with BSC (arm B), in pre-treated mCRC patients. Methods: Pts with documented mCRC and progressive disease at least to two chemotherapy regimens and...
