    ABSTRACT: A 79-year-old male whose chest X-ray revealed a localized reticular shadow in health check was once treated medically with a diagnosis of interstitial pneumonia. Regardless of the treatment, the shadow increased in its size. Positron emission tomography (PET)-computed tomography(CT) was suggestive of a primary lung cancer in clinical stage IIIA. CA19-9 and CEA were 3,568.5 U/ml and 178.2 ng/ml respectively, and a left lower lobectomy was performed. The postoperative course was uneventful. Both tumor markers declined shortly after the surgery. But they increased in 8 months after the surgery associated with tumor recurrence. In spite of chemotherapy, the patient was expired 15 months following the surgery. Immunohistochemical staining showed the tumor was a well differentiated adenocarcinoma with positive findings of both CEA and CA19-9.

    ABSTRACT: Massive intrapulmonary haemorrhage and haemothorax are uncommon presentations associated with pulmonary sequestration. Here, we describe the case of a 40-year-old man who suffered from high fever and haemoptysis for 1 week before he was admitted to our hospital with a complaint of chest discomfort with shock. Computed tomography revealed that pulmonary sequestration supplied from the coeliac artery with persistent bleeding. The patient underwent right lower lobectomy and an emergent laparotomy for ligation of the aberrant artery. A pulmonary sequestration has a severe complication resulting in shock due to intrapulmonary haemorrhage and haemothorax. Accordingly, early resection of a sequestered lung should be the choice of the treatment in these cases.

    ABSTRACT: Most centrally located early lung cancers (CLELC) <1.0 cm in diameter do not invade beyond the bronchial cartilage, and photodynamic therapy (PDT) with Photofrin is currently recommended as a treatment option for such lesions. NPe6 is a second-generation photosensitizer, and because it has a longer absorption band (664 nm) than Photofrin (630 nm), we hypothesized that NPe6-PDT would exert a strong antitumor effect against cancer lesions >1.0 cm in diameter, which are assumed to involve extracartilaginous invasion and to be unsuitable for treatment with Photofrin-PDT. Between June 2004 and December 2008, 75 patients (91 lesions) with CLELC underwent NPe6-PDT after the extent of their tumors had been assessed by fluorescence bronchoscopy for photodynamic diagnosis and tumor depth had been assessed by optical coherence tomography. Seventy cancer lesions < or =1.0 cm in diameter and 21 lesions >1.0 cm in diameter were identified, and the complete response rate was 94.0% (66 of 70) and 90.4% (19 of 21), respectively. After the mass of large tumors and deeply invasive tumors had been reduced by electrocautery, NPe6-PDT was capable of destroying the residual cancer lesions. NPe6-PDT has a strong antitumor effect against CLELCs >1.0 cm in diameter that have invaded beyond the bronchial cartilage, thereby enabling the destruction of residual cancer lesions after mass reduction of large nodular- or polypoid-type lung cancers by electrocautery. The PDT guidelines for lung cancers should therefore be revised because use of NPe6-PDT will enable expansion of the clinical indications for PDT.

    ABSTRACT: Patients with centrally located early lung cancer (CLELC) are often heavy smokers with a considerably high risk of multiple primary lung cancer (MPLC) lesions; treatment strategies for such patients must preserve the cardiopulmonary function. Between July 2004 and July 2008, patients with CLELC underwent photodynamic therapy (PDT) using NPe6, second-generation photosensitizer at Tokyo Medical University Hospital. Among these patients, we retrospectively analyzed MPLC, which was treated by surgery plus PDT or PDT alone and examined the effectiveness of PDT, and we propose a treatment strategy for patients with MPLC. A total of 64 patients with CLECL received NPe6-PDT, and MPLCs were found in 22 patients (34.4%) using sputum cytology and a bronchoscopical examination using autofluorescence bronchoscopy. Among these 22 patients, 10 patients underwent surgery for primary lung cancer and underwent NPe6-PDT for the treatment of secondary primary CLELC, one patient underwent PDT for CLELC as a primary lesion followed by an operation for peripheral-type lung cancer as a secondary primary lesion, and 11 patients underwent PDT alone for MPLC lesions (28 lesions) that were roentgenographically occult lung cancers. Among these 22 patients with MPLC including peripheral-type lung cancers, which were resected by surgery, all 39 CLELC lesions exhibited a complete response after PDT, and all patients were alive. For patients with lung cancer with a long-term history of smoking, careful follow-up examinations after surgical resection are needed considering the incidence of metachronous primary lung cancers. PDT can play an important role for the treatment strategy for MPLC.

    ABSTRACT: Bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) is the main cause of late mortality among long-term survivors of lung transplantation. Chemokine-chemokine receptor (CCR) interaction and subsequent recruitment of infiltrating cells to the graft are early events in the development of chronic rejection of transplanted lungs. The present study investigated whether blockade of chemokine receptors CCR1 and CCR5 with Met-regulated-on-activation, normal T cells expressed and secreted (RANTES), an amino-terminal modified derivative of RANTES/CCL5, affects the development of BO in murine model and we sought to determine the expression of RANTES/CCL5 and their relationship with extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK). Materials and Methods: BALB/c mouse tracheas were heterotopically transplanted into C57Black6 recipients and treated for 21 days with either Met-RANTES at 20 microg/day or vehicle. Animals were killed at 21 days after transplantation for histologic examination of ERK expression. RANTES/CCL5 was highly expressed in allografts compare to isografts. Met-RANTES treatment ameliorated fibrous airway obliteration in a mouse model of BO and decreased ERK expression. Blockade of chemokine receptors by Met-RANTES ameliorated airway obliteration and decreased ERK expression. These findings suggest that chemokine receptors CCR1 and CCR5 play significant roles in the development of chronic rejection and ERK may be a new molecular target for chronic rejection.

    ABSTRACT: A sixty-two-year-old female presented with non-small-cell lung carcinoma with multiple bone metastasis. Combination chemotherapy with CBDCA and GEM was implemented, but as no effect was obtained, TS-1 was begun with a single course of oral administration of 100 mg/day continuously for 28 days followed by a 14-day rest. Following the start of TS-1, PR of the primary tumor was obtained, and whole-body bone scintigraphy revealed a reduction in abnormal areas of uptake. The woman continues to receive TS-1 orally as an outpatient.
