Abstract A 79-year-old woman was diagnosed with stage IV (cT1aN1M1, OSS) lung adenocarcinoma with bone metastasis of the right femur. She received nivolumab as a third-line treatment. She developed pain in the right shoulder, left wrist, right knee, and waist as well as a low-grade fever and morning stiffness, after five courses of nivolumab. After closer examination, she was diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) precipitated by an immune-related adverse event. Nivolumab was discontinued, ...

A standard chemotherapy regimen for advanced thymic carcinoma has not yet been established. We treated 2 cases of thymic carcinoma with carboplatin plus nanoparticle albumin-bound (nab)-paclitaxel, and nab-paclitaxel maintenance therapy. The first case was a 68-year-old female, admitted for dyspnea and left shoulder pain. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed a huge mass in the anterior mediastinum, pleural and pericardial effusions, and multiple lung metastases. Specimens obtained from the ante...

Favipiravir is an oral broad-spectrum inhibitor of viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase that is approved for treatment of influenza in Japan. We conducted a prospective, randomized, open-label, multicenter trial of favipiravir for the treatment of COVID-19 at 25 hospitals across Japan. Eligible patients were adolescents and adults admitted with COVID-19 who were asymptomatic or mildly ill and had an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1. Patients were randomly assi...

Background: Nivolumab efficacy in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and performance status (PS) of 2-4 is unclear. We aimed to compare survival, treatment efficacy, and safety in patients with NSCLC with poor PS who received nivolumab plus best supportive care (BSC) with those in patients who received BSC alone in a palliative care unit (PCU). Patients and methods: This retrospective study included 99 consecutive patients with NSCLC who received nivolumab plus BSC or BSC alone bet...

OBJECTIVE: Immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related disease is a recently described systemic immune-mediated fibro-inflammatory disease that frequently occurs in tumorous form. Herein, we elucidated the clinicopathological and cytological characteristics of IgG4-related pleural lesions (PLs). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Among 22 patients with fibro-inflammatory PLs of idiopathic aetiology, eight cases were diagnosed as IgG4-PL and the remaining 14 as non-IgG4-PL according to comprehensive diagnostic criteria for...

Background. Standard chemotherapy for advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with preexisting interstitial lung disease (ILD) has not yet been established. Although a combination of carboplatin and paclitaxel is most frequently used for patients with advanced NSCLC and ILD, the safety and efficacy of carboplatin plus nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel) are yet to be elucidated. Objectives. This study aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of carboplatin plus nab-paclit...

Abstract A 65-year-old man was admitted for productive cough and dyspnea. Bilateral pleural effusions were observed on chest X-ray. Although the bilateral pleural effusions were exudative with an increased number of lymphocytes, bacterial culture and polymerase chain reaction analysis for Mycobacterium tuberculosis were negative. Immunological examinations showed high levels of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) in both serum and pleural effusion fluid. Pathologic evaluation of a left pleural biopsy speci...
