Flexible bronchoscopy and its role in the staging of non-small cell lung cancer


, : Flexible bronchoscopy and its role in the staging of non-small cell lung cancer. Clinics in Chest Medicine 31(1): 87-100, Table of Contents

Technologic advances in bronchoscopy continue to improve the ability to perform minimally invasive, accurate evaluations of the tracheobronchial tree and to perform an ever-increasing array of diagnostic, staging, therapeutic, and palliative interventions. The role of both old and new diagnostic bronchoscopy will continue to evolve as further improvements are made in bronchoscopes, accessory equipment, and imaging technologies. The major challenge is the adoption of the many new bronchoscopic techniques into routine clinical practice. There is a need for well-designed studies to delineate the appropriate use of these interventions and to better define their limitations and cost effectiveness.

The high prevalence of clarithromycin-resistant strains of Helicobacter pylori is a main challenge for the successful treatment of gastrointestinal infections. Point mutations in the 23S rRNA gene are one of the main mechanisms leading to the resi...

Background: We previously found differences in total concentrations of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 1 (TIMP-1) in plasma from donors and cancer patients. Because TIMP-1 can exist in more than one molecular form, a new immunoassay to spec...
