Abstract Introduction The aim of this study is to assess the diagnostic value of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in differentiating metastasic from non-metastatic lymph nodes in NSCLC patients compared with computed tomography (CT) and fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) - positron emission tomography (PET) or both combined. Methods Twenty-three studies (19 studies and 4 meta-analysis) with sample size ranging between 22 and 250 patients were included in this analysis. MRI, regardless of the sequence ...

Abstract Background There is inadequate evidence to determine whether there is an effect of alcohol consumption on lung cancer risk. We conducted a pooled analysis of data from the International Lung Cancer Consortium and the SYNERGY study to investigate this possible association by type of beverage with adjustment for other potential confounders. Methods Twenty one case-control studies and one cohort study with alcohol-intake data obtained from questionnaires were included in this pooled analys...

Lung cancer poses a serious health problem worldwide being the first cancer in incidence and the leading cause of cancer death in developed countries (1). According to its histological characteristics lung cancer is subdivided into two types; the main one is non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) which originates from bronchial epithelial-cell precursors and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) that originates in neuroendocrine cells. NSCLC is the most abundant form of lung cancer comprising more than 80% ...

Background: Radon (and its decay products) is a known human carcinogen and the leading cause of lung cancer in never-smokers and the second in ever-smokers. The carcinogenic mechanism from radiation is a combination of genetic and epigenetic processes, but compared to the genetic mechanisms, epigenetic processes remain understudied in humans. This study aimed to explore associations between residential radon exposure and DNA methylation in the general population. Methods: Potential residential r...

Abstract Background The prevalence of vertical facial growth is very high in the developed world. Most authors agree that mouth breathing is its main cause. Even though care is mainly conducted by odontologists, the professionals who first see these patients are pediatricians and otolaryngologists. The objective of this study is to analyze the ability of pediatricians and otolaryngologists to identify early signs of vertical facial growth among children. Methods 60 participant aged 4.1–13.7 year...

Introduction. Influenza A H1N1 community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a quite frequent respiratory disease. Despite being considered more serious than other CAPs, there are very few studies comparing its characteristics with noninfluenza CAP. We aim to establish the differences between pneumonia due to H1N1 virus and pneumonia not caused by H1N1 influenza virus and to determine the probability that a pneumonia is due to an H1N1 virus infection based on the most relevant variables. Methods. We use...

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, ...
