Isolated thoracic perfusion with chemofiltration for progressive malignant pleural mesothelioma

OncoTargets and Therapy 2017 June [Link] Aigner KR, Selak E, Gailhofer S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Therapy of malignant pleural mesothelioma and especially the adequate role of surgery in this context remain the subject of controversial discussions. Radical surgery in particular, which is associated with substantial morbidity, failed to translate into a definite survival advantage. We report […]

Epithelioid Malignant Mesothelioma Metastatic to the Skin: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Journal of Cutaneous Pathology 2017 August [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Ward RE, Ali SA, Kuhar M Abstract Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer arising from a monolayer of mesothelial cells that form the lining of the internal body cavities and organs, with the vast majority of cases arising from the pleura (65-80%), less […]

Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma: State of the art and advanced cell therapy

European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry 2017 August [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Facchetti G, Petrella F, Spaggiari L, Rimoldi I Abstract Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive malignancy highly resistant to chemotherapy, with a response rate of 20% of patients and for this reason an efficient treatment is still a challenge. Platinum-based chemotherapy in […]

Malignant pleural mesothelioma segmentation for photodynamic therapy planning

Computerized Medical Imaging Society 2017 July [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Brahim W, Mestiri M, Betrouni N, Hamrouni K Abstract Medical imaging modalities such as computed tomography (CT) combined with computer-aided diagnostic processing have already become important part of clinical routine specially for pleural diseases. The segmentation of the thoracic cavity represents an extremely important […]

Indolent peritoneal mesothelioma: PI3K-mTOR inhibitors as a novel therapeutic strategy

ESMO 2017 April [Link] Dolly SO, Migali C, Tunariu N, Della-Pepa C, Khakoo S, Hazell S, de Bono JS, Kaye SB, Banerjee S Abstract Peritoneal mesothelioma (MPeM) is a scarce abdominal-pelvic malignancy that presents with non-specific features and exhibits a wide clinical spectrum from indolent to aggressive disease. Due to it being a rare entity, […]

Diagnostic value of medical thoracoscopy in malignant pleural effusion

BMC Pulmonary Medicine 2017 August [Link] Wu YB, Xu LL, Wang XJ, Wang Z, Zhang J, Tong ZH, Shi HZ Abstract BACKGROUND: Medical thoracoscopy has been shown to be an efficacious procedure in diagnosing unexplained exudative pleural effusions with excellent safety. This study aimed to assess the diagnostic significance of thoracoscopy in the management of […]

The differential diagnosis between pleural sarcomatoid mesothelioma and spindle cell/pleomorphic (sarcomatoid) carcinomas of the lung: Evidence-Based guidelines from the International Mesothelioma Panel and the MESOPATH National Reference Center.

Human Pathology 2017 August 4 [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Marchevsky AM, et. al. Abstract Immunohistochemistry is used to distinguish sarcomatoid malignant mesotheliomas (SMM) from spindle cell and pleomorphic carcinomas (SPC) but there are no guidelines on how to interpret cases that show overlapping or equivocal immunohistochemical findings. A systematic literature review of the immunophenotype […]
