BACKGROUND Nintedanib is a multi-kinase inhibitor approved for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF); however, its efficacy and safety for patients with IPF and restricted pulmonary function remain unclear. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the efficacy and safety of nintedanib for patients with IPF and forced vital capacity (FVC) ≤ 50%. METHODS This was a multi-center retrospective study performed by the Okayama Respiratory Disease Study Group. Patients were allocated into F...

A 70-year-old woman underwent right upper lobectomy for adenocarcinoma of the lung (pT1bN2M0 stage IIIA). Five years after the surgery, lymph node recurrence was detected. Gefitinib was administered because epidermal growth factor (EGFR) exon 19 deletion mutation was detected in the previously resected surgical specimen. After a treatment of first-generation EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors, an FDG-PET/CT scan demonstrated abnormal FDG uptake in the pleura indicating pleural dissemination. Pleuro...

A 74-year-old man with a history of occupational asbestos exposure in a shipyard was diagnosed with lymphohistiocytoid mesothelioma (LHM). Systemic chemotherapy consisted of cisplatin, and pemetrexed was administered. After six courses of chemotherapy, multiple tumours had regressed. Six months after chemotherapy, the tumours on the pleura exhibited regrowth and partly invaded the liver. Salvage chemotherapies, including irinotecan and vinorelbine, were administered and his disease was stable fo...

A 73-year-old man was referred to our hospital after a 2-week history of bloody sputum and cough. Computed tomography (CT) images of the chest showed a mass grouped with mediastinal lymph nodes, and bronchoscopy showed a projecting mass in the right main bronchus. After a transbronchial biopsy, the patient was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma (T4N2M0 stage IIIB). The patient was treated with systemic chemotherapy, consisting of cisplatin (40 mg/m2, days 1 and 8) and docetaxel (30 mg/m2, da...

: A 65-year-old woman visited our hospital due to right chest pain and dyspnea on exertion. Chest radiography revealed decreased permeability of the right lung. Computed tomography demonstrated a huge mass in the right upper lobe and right pleural effusion. Right pleural effusion cytology yielded a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma and was positive for mutation of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR; exon 21 L858R). Afatinib was selected for the initial treatment. Multiple tumors regressed remarkab...

The brain is a rare site of metastasis in malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), and its clinical features and prognosis remain unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence, prognosis, and risk factors for brain metastases (BM) in MPM patients. Between July 1993 and October 2014, 150 patients with histologically proven MPM were included in this retrospective study. The cumulative incidence of BM was estimated with the Kaplan–Meier method, and differences between groups were ana...

An 81-year-old woman visited a local clinic due to chest pain and a skin induration on the right precordia. She had a history of right breast cancer, and she had undergone a mastectomy and radiation therapy 10 years prior. Computed tomography (CT) imaging of the chest demonstrated a lobular mass that involved the right anterior thoracic wall and partially extruded from the thoracic cavity into the subcutaneous tissue. The tumor was surgically excised, and pathological analyses yielded a diagnosi...

Abstracts Objectives Chronic inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) as a result of asbestos exposure. Several inflammation-based prognostic scores including the lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR), Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) reportedly predict survival in many malignancies, while the role of LMR in MPM remains unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clini...
