Background: Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is associated with poor survival despite surgical resection, and its pathogenesis has been broadly investigated in the past decade. Early growth response 1 (EGR-1) could involve regulating tumor development in ESCC cells. Methods: An attempt was made to examine the molecular and cellular influen...

Background: For people who are overweight or obese, maintaining a metabolically healthy status can decrease the risks of developing cardiovascular diseases and Type 2 diabetes. Despite this, only a limited amount of research has discussed the metabolically healthy overweight and obesity (MHOO) population in Asia and the factors associated with the...

The PD-1/PD-L1 pathway is critical in T cell biology; however, the role of the PD-1/PD-L1 pathway in clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes in pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients is unclear. We prospectively enrolled PTB, latent TB infection (LTBI), and non-TB, non-LTBI subjects. The expression of PD-1/PD-L1 on peripheral blood mononucle...

Background Thymoma is a type of rare mediastinal tumor whose clinical characteristics and indicators of prognosis are poorly understood. This single-institution retrospective study aimed to assess the predictive value of tumor, node, metastasis (TNM) staging incorporating tumor size in predicting the risk of thymoma recurrence after resection. Met...

The association between metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) has not been thoroughly evaluated. This study enrolled 906 adult participants aged 35–55 years between 2009 and 2010 in Northern Taiwan; 427 participants were followed up after eight years. Normal weight, overweight, and obesity were evaluated via...

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is associated with cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, chronic renal diseases, and all-cause mortality. Furthermore, MetS is associated with poor health-related quality of life (HRQOL). However, the impact of dynamic changes in MetS on changes in the HRQOL was not previously explored. This was an eight-year, prospect...

Introduction Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) crizotinib, ceritinib, alectinib, brigatinib, and lorlatinib are approved for advanced non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with ALK rearrangement. However, the mechanisms of resistance remain largely unclear. Methods This prospective multicenter study analyzed cell-free...

Exposure to environmental and occupational contaminants leads to lung cancer. 3-Nitrobenzanthrone (3-nitro-7H-benz[de]anthracen-7-one, 3-NBA) is a potential carcinogen in ambient air or diesel particulate matter. Studies have revealed that short-term exposure to 3-NBA induces cell death, reactive oxygen species activation, and DNA adduct formation...

Background The treatment for stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) often involves multi-modality treatment. This retrospective study aimed to evaluate whether multidisciplinary team (MDT) discussion results in better patient survival. Materials and methods MDT discussion was optional before February 2016 and was actively encouraged by the M...
Article
Background: We aimed to investigate the association between physical activity and successful aging among middle-aged and older adults and study how this association changes with age and time. Results: The mean score of Newcastle-Ottawa Scale assessment was 8.0±0.8. Physically active middle-aged and older adults were more likely to age successful...
Article
Full-text available
Background Later line chemotherapy (≥2nd lines) such as Docetaxel or immunotherapy is frequently used. As the life expectancy of lung cancer patients is getting longer, we need to provide more treatment options. Other treatment options are not well documented except for Doxetaxel and immunotherapy. Therefore, the efficacy of paclitaxel plus TS1 (TT...

Full-text available
Thymomas are enigmatic tumors for which surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment. However, there are still many debates about resected thymomas with pleural recurrence. Repetitive operations for thymomas involving pleural recurrence are still the treatment of choice. Herein, we present a case with a suitable performance status for re-operati...
Article

Introduction: Weather we could use IHC stain of PD-L1 on cells of pleural effusion to predict immunotherapy treatment response have not been reported. Methods: We retrospectively enrolled patients who had undergone malignant pleural effusion drainage and had effusion cell block specimens from 2014-2016. IHC staining for PD-L1 was performed with...
Article
Full-text available
Background and objectives: Thymoma has a variable long-term oncological outcome after surgical resection. Survival and tumor recurrence were analyzed to determine the predisposing factors for tumor recurrence. Methods: A total of 235 patients who underwent surgery for thymoma or thymic carcinoma from December 1997 to March 2013 were analyzed usi...

Background: Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) has been used for thousands of year in Eastern countries. First-line epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) treatment is the standard treatment in stage IV pulmonary adenocarcinoma patients who had tumor EGFR mutations. This study was to find the efficacy of CHM on lung can...
Article

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most frequent arrhythmias in clinical practice. Previous studies have reported the influence of AF on patients with heart failure (HF). The effect of AF on the non-HF critically ill patients in a medical intensive care unit (ICU) remains largely unclear. The study aimed to investigate the impact of AF presenti...

Background: Thymic carcinomas are rare tumors for which surgical resection is the first treatment of choice. The role of adjuvant treatment after surgery is unknown because of limited available data. The present study evaluated the efficacy of post-surgery adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy in patients with thymic carcinoma. Methods: To evalu...

The family medicine researches flourished worldwide in the past decade. However, the collaborative patterns of family medicine publications had not been reported. Our study analyzed the collaborative activity of family medicine researchers in Taiwan. We focused on the types of collaboration among disciplines, institutions and countries. We searched...
Article
Lung cancer is frequently a disease of elderly patients. However, these patients are often treated less actively owing to a higher comorbidity rate and poor performance status. The efficacy of different treatments in elderly patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-mutated lung cancer is still unknown. We retrospectively reviewed the r...

Weaning from mechanical ventilation is one of the most important and challenging problems for most intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) is the most common method used to evaluate patients' ability to breathe by themselves and plays an important role in decision making for weaning. The aim of our study was to investi...
Article
Salvage chemotherapy is frequently used when tumour epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutated patients experience disease progression with first-line EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) treatment. However, the efficacy of salvage chemotherapy is still unknown. We retrospectively reviewed the chart records of our pulmonary adenocarcinoma pati...

Background Metabolic syndrome (MetS), associated with the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, resulted in subsequent functional decline among aging population. It would be of interest to investigate the characteristics and related health behaviors of MetS among community-dwelling elderly. Methods During 2007–2010, we selected the elderly wh...
