The article presents some papers related to molecular mechanisms in lung cancer. There is increasing evidence that immune surveillance plays a critical role in the prevention and prognosis in a variety of carcinomas. The role played by the innate immune system in determining the clinical outcome from non small cell lung cancer is unclear. Macrophages and mast cells were identified using mAb to CD68 and tryptase respectively. Areas of tumor islets and stroma were identified and the area calculated using image analysis.

    Abstract: Objective: There are two types of human mast cells, tryptase-positive mast cells (MCT) and tryptase- and chymase-positive mast cells (MCTC). Although MCT have been reported to be related to the generation of angiogenesis, little is known about the involvement of MCTC in tumor...

    Background: We have previously demonstrated that tumour islet infiltration by macrophages is associated with extended survival (ES) in NSCLC. We therefore hypothesised that patients with improved survival would have high tumour islet expression of chemokine receptors known to be associated with...

    Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an aggressive disease characterized by rapid growth and metastases. It has been recognized that the inflammation of the microenvironment plays a critical role in the development of malignancies. However, little is known about the role of multiple inflammatory and...

    The Fas (APO-1/CD95) system regulates a number of physiological and pathological processes of cell death. The ligand for Fas induces apoptosis by interacting with a transmembrane cell surface Fas receptor. The key role of the Fas system has been studied mostly in the immune system, but Fas...
