Objective: To investigate the clinical effect of mouse nerve growth factor (mNGF) and methylcobalamin (MeCbl) for the treatment of lumbar disk herniation (LDH) with foot drop.Methods: A total of 46 patients suffering from LDH with foot drop who underwent transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) surgery in our department from January 2015 to December 2017 were retrospectively analyzed. We divided these patients into two groups according to the different postoperative treatment which independently selected by patients after signing informed consent form: one group of 25 patients was treated with MeCbl alone (Group MeCbl), the other group of 21 patients was treated with a combination of mNGF and MeCbl (Group MeCbl+mNGF).

The attempt that introduces EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) into the treatment of LA-NSCLC with EGFR mutation has been warranted.Methods: Chemotherapy-naïve, unresectable LA-NSCLC patients with sensitive EGFR mutation (exon 19 deletion or exon 21 L858R point mutation) were enrolled.
