Survival and Grades vs. Costs and Values of Nivolumab in Cancer; the Impact of PD-L1 Positivity

Authors: Helmy M Guirgis

Abstract: Nivolumab (Nivo) is a programmed death receptor-1 immune check point antibody widely used in cancer.

Survival and Values of the Immune Check Point Inhibitors in Non- Small-Cell Lung Cancer

Authors: Helmy M Guirgis

Abstract: The efficacy and safety of the Immune Check Point Inhibitors (ICPI) have been well documented. Their costs and values have received lesser attention.

Pseudoprogression in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Brain Metastases Attributable to the Anti-PD-1 Antibody Nivolumab

Authors: Sooraj John, Scott J Antonia, Trevor A Rose and Ben C Creelan

Abstract: Pseudoprogression is a challenging obstacle in the interpretation of therapeutic response to radiation and chemotherapies for metastatic brain lesions. Combination of stereotactic radio surgery post-treatment effects and anti-PD-1 antibody therapy may cause benign edematous enhancements in treated brain metastases which mimic tumor progression.

Radiation Therapy in the Treatment of Small Cell Lung Cancer

Authors: Guler Yavas and Cagdas Yavas

Abstract: Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) represents between 13-15% of all lung cancers; however is the fifth leading cause of cancer death worldwide. SCLC prognosis remains poor despite improvements in diagnosis and treatment over the last 30 years.

Is There an Increased Risk of Lung Cancer among the Chinese Silica Cohort? - The Influence of Occupational Confounders

Authors: Yi Sun and Frank Bochmann

Abstract: To evaluate a possible influence of confounding in risk estimation for lung cancer in relation to silica dust exposure, we re-analyze a recently published exposure-response relationship using a sub-cohort of Chinese tungsten miners which has no relevant occupational confounders.

A Quantitative Assessment of Lung Tumor Motion under Abdominal Compression using 4D-CT Imaging

Authors: Dennis Mohatt, Jorge Gomez and Harish K Malhotra

Abstract: Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) has rapidly emerged as a curative procedure for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The ablative hypo-fractionated radiation doses used with SBRT requires very small tumor margins, making tumor motion management very important to reduce the risk of long term morbidity.
