The pathogenesis of pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis (PPFE), a rare interstitial lung disease, remains unclear. Based on previous reports and our experience, we hypothesized that alveolar epithelial denudation (AED) was involved in the pathogenesis of PPFE. This multicenter retrospective study investigated the percentage of AED and the features of the denudated areas in 26 PPFE cases, 30 idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) cases, and 29 controls. PPFE patients had lower forced vital capacities a...

A 48-year-old woman presented with a fever, microscopic hematuria, proteinuria, and rapid deterioration of the renal function. Pulmonary alveolar hemorrhaging and a high level of anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) antibodies (700 IU/mL) were observed. Based on her medical history and positive findings of serum lupus anticoagulant, anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome (APS) was suspected. A renal biopsy revealed cellular crescentic glomerulonephritis with thrombosis, suggesting anti-GBM disea...

Pulmonary sarcomatoid carcinoma (SC) is an aggressive subtype of lung cancer that exhibits resistance to cytotoxic chemotherapy. Although programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) inhibitors have been reported to show antitumor effects in patients with high programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expressing SC, the efficacy of combined therapy with PD-1 inhibitor plus cytotoxic chemotherapy has not previously been clarified. We herein report a case of SC with low expression of PD-L1 and few pre-existing tumor-in...

BACKGROUND The clinical course of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is characterized by a progressive decline in lung function; however, predicting changes in lung function is difficult. We sought to determine whether the prior 6-month trend in forced vital capacity (FVC) could predict mortality and the subsequent 6-month trend in FVC. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed consecutive patients with newly diagnosed IPF who underwent serial pulmonary function tests. The immediate two years after t...

A 60-year-old Japanese woman presented with subacute progressive muscle pain and weakness in her proximal extremities. She was diagnosed with influenza A (H3N2) infection a week before the onset of muscle pain. At the time of admission, she exhibited weakness in the proximal muscles of the upper and lower limbs, elevated serum liver enzymes and creatinine kinase, and myoglobinuria. She did not manifest renal failure and cardiac abnormalities, indicating myocarditis. Electromyography revealed myo...

The evolution of DNA methylome and methylation intra-tumor heterogeneity (ITH) during early carcinogenesis of lung adenocarcinoma has not been systematically studied. We perform reduced representation bisulfite sequencing of invasive lung adenocarcinoma and its precursors, atypical adenomatous hyperplasia, adenocarcinoma in situ and minimally invasive adenocarcinoma. We observe gradual increase of methylation aberrations and significantly higher level of methylation ITH in later-stage lesions. T...

Small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) is speculated to harbor complex genomic intratumor heterogeneity (ITH) associated with high recurrence rate and suboptimal response to immunotherapy. Here, we revealed a rather homogeneous mutational landscape but extremely suppressed and heterogeneous T cell receptor (TCR) repertoire in SCLCs. Higher mutational burden, lower chromosomal copy number aberration (CNA) burden, less CNA ITH and less TCR ITH were associated with longer overall survival of SCLC patients. ...

Abstract Introduction PD1/PD-L1 pathway targeting therapies are nowadays an established treatment option for patients with NSCLC. We assessed whether PD-L1 expression in NSCLC tumor cells was associated with specific clinical features or overall survival using four different clones. Methods and results A retrospective study included formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) surgical tumors from 482 patients. PD-L1 status was assessed with immunohistochemistry in tumor cells on tissue microarrays u...

BACKGROUND Histopathologic factors predictive of nintedanib efficacy in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis have not been studied. We aimed to describe the characteristics, focusing on histopathology, of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients who did and did not respond to nintedanib. METHODS This study retrospectively examined the clinicoradiopathologic features of 40 consecutive patients with surgical lung biopsy-confirmed idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis treated with nintedanib. Additionally, we compa...
