Background: Detection rates of early-stage lung cancer are traditionally low, which contributes to inconsistent treatment responses and high rates of annual cancer deaths. Currently, low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening produces a high false discovery rate. This limitation has prompted research to identify biomarkers to more clearly defin...

Background: Detection rates of early-stage lung cancer are traditionally low, which contributes to inconsistent treatment responses and the highest rates of annual cancer deaths in the U.S. Currently, age and smoking history are the primary factors that qualify patients for low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening, which contributes heavily to...
Chapter
There are three types of liver abscesses or cysts that may necessitate surgical intervention: pyogenic, amoebic, and echinococcal cysts. This chapter reviews the epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and management of these diseases. Pyogenic abscesses are bacterial in origin and are caused by either direct extension into the liver from t...

Background: A significant proportion of patients who undergo lung resection for less than 4 cm non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) will die of disease recurrence within 5 years. The ability to identify patients at greatest risk for recurrence may help individualize treatment and surveillance regimens and improve outcomes. We hypothesized that a ser...

... IGFBP-1 was evaluated in a seven-analyte panel to identify patients with disease recurrence following resection of node-negative NSCLC tumors that were less than 4 cm in size. The panel proved to be 91% sensitive and had a negative predictive value of 83% [74]. Multiple papers have demonstrated that higher levels of IGFBP-2 are associated with worse OS in lung adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and small cell carcinoma, and these higher levels are associated with increased rates of metastasis and higher staging [73,75,76]. ...
