Rethinking a Non-Predominant Pattern in Invasive Lung Adenocarcinoma: Prognostic Dissection Focusing on a High-Grade Pattern.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Jun 4;13(11). Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Department of Radiology and Center for Imaging Science, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine (SKKU-SOM), 81 Irwon-Ro, Gangnam-Gu, Seoul 06351, Korea.

Background: Prognostic considerations for non-predominant patterns are necessary because most lung adenocarcinomas (ADCs) have a mixed histologic pattern, and the spectrum of actual prognosis varies widely even among lung ADCs with the same most predominant pattern. We aimed to identify prognostic stratification by second most predominant pattern of lung ADC and to more accurately assess prognostic factors with CT imaging analysis, particularly enhancing non-predominant but high-grade pattern.

Methods: In this prospective study, patients with early-stage lung ADC undergoing curative surgery underwent preoperative dual-energy CT (DECT) and positron emission tomography (PET)/CT. Read More

Rituximab Maintenance Versus Observation After Immunochemotherapy (R-CHOP, R-MCP, and R-FCM) in Untreated Follicular Lymphoma Patients: A Randomized Trial of the Ostdeutsche Studiengruppe Hämatologie und Onkologie and the German Low-Grade Lymphoma Study Group.

Hemasphere 2021 Jul 23;5(7):e600. Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Helios Klinikum Erfurt, Germany.

The German study groups, the German Low-Grade Lymphoma Study Group (GLSG) and Ostdeutsche Studiengruppe Hämatologie und Onkologie (OSHO), initiated in 2007 a double randomized trial to investigate efficacy and safety of rituximab maintenance versus observation in remission after randomly assigned induction treatment in the first-line follicular lymphoma. Previously untreated patients with stage II-IV follicular lymphoma in need of therapy were randomized to receive 6 cycles of R-CHOP, R-MCP, or R-FCM. Responding patients were subsequently randomized to 2 years rituximab maintenance or observation, stratified by type of immunochemotherapy, quality of remission, and Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (FLIPI).

Long-Term fate of the upper urinary tract and ITS association with continence in exstrophy patients.

J Pediatr Urol 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Pediatric and Reconstructive Urology, Ghent University Hospital, Belgium, Corneel Heymanslaan 10, Gent, 9000, Belgium. Electronic address:

Introduction: Scarce data is available in literature about the upper urinary tract outcomes of patients with Exstrophy-Epispadias Complex (EEC). After bladder closure during childhood, EEC bladders can become hostile to the upper tracts after bladder by exposing them to high pressures, leading to hydronephrosis (HN) and kidney damage. Similarly, vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) may be present and increase the likelihood for pyelonephritis. Read More
