Abstract Objectives To analyze the relationship of GSTT1, GSTM1, XRCC1 (rs25487), ERCC1 (rs11615, rs3212986), ERCC2 (rs13181), XRCC3 (rs861539), OGG1 (rs1052133), and Alpha-1-Antitrypsin mutations (AAT) with the risk of lung cancer in never-smokers, and ascertain if there is an effect modification between these polymorphisms and residential radon exposure. Material and Methods We designed a multicenter hospital-based case-control study in a radon-prone area. 322 cases and 338 controls, all never...

Abstract Introduction Silicosis is a chronic progressive disease caused by inhalation of crystalline silica. Most cases develop in underground mine workers and in subjects involved in the extraction of natural stone (slate and granite). In view of the progressive emergence of new cases of silicosis in artificial quartz conglomerate workers, we performed a study to analyze the characteristics of silicosis produced by this new agent in Spain. Methods The study consisted of a series of 96 cases of ...

Abstract Introduction Inherited susceptibility to lung cancer risk in never-smokers is poorly understood. The major reason for this gap in knowledge is that this disease is relatively uncommon (except in Asians), making it difficult to assemble an adequate study sample. In this study we conducted a genome-wide association study on the largest, to date, set of European-descent never-smokers with lung cancer. Methods We conducted a two-phase (discovery and replication) genome-wide association stud...

Abstract Objective To analyze the causes of retracted publications and the main characteristics of their authors. Method A descriptive cross-sectional study was designed including all retracted publications from January 1st, 2013-December 31st, 2016 indexed in PubMed. The causes of retraction were classified as: data management, authorship issues, plagiarism, unethical research, journal issues, review process, conflict of interest, other causes, and unknown reasons. Then, misbehaviour was classi...

Background Treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) is recommended in pregnant women and prior to urologic procedures with anticipated mucosal disruption. However, there is still insufficient evidence of the usefulness of treating ASB prior to urologic procedures. Therefore, the aim of this study was to ascertain the risk of infections in patients undergoing urologic surgery based on the presence of ASB. Methods We conducted a cohort study among patients undergoing urologic surgery at a singl...

Background Although the factors associated to bacterial resistance in patients with asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) have been studied in pregnant, fertile age women, patients with spinal cord injury, and those with urogynecological disorders, nothing is known about the factors associated with multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria in patients with ASB and planned urological procedures. This study therefore sought to identify the sociodemographic and clinical factors associated with MDR bacteria in a ...

Abstract Background Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in the nonsmoking population. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends indoor concentrations of Patients and Methods We assessed the radon concentration from EGFR -, BRAF -mutated (m), and ALK -rearranged (r) NSCLC patients measured by an alpha-track detector placed in their homes between September 2014 and August 2015. Clinical characteristics were collected prospectively, and pathologic samples were reviewed retrospectivel...

Abstract Lung cancer incidence among never smokers has increased in recent decades with 10–30% of all lung cancers occurring in never smokers, where exposure to residential radon is the leading cause of this disease. Lung cancer survival is low, ranging from 12% to 16% at 5 years of diagnosis. There is scant evidence to date on survival from this disease in never smokers. We aim to evaluate lung cancer survival in never smokers and ascertain whether there might be differences regarding smokers, ...
