New findings on treating malignant lung disease   New research on the rare, understudied cancer, malignant pleural mesothelioma, was  published  on Friday by a team of scientists, identifying new ways of reporting biopsy results and effective treatment programmes.     (...) The use of asbestos has been banned in many developed countries, yet despite regulatory actions, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States reports that the annual number of malignant mesothelioma deaths remains substantial.   (...)

Early lung cancer characterization (including differentiating benign from malignant nodules) is also critical because this would dramatically affect treatment selection and patient outcome. (...) For clinical evaluation of AI for malignant nodule diagnosis, gold standard comes from pathological or CT follow-ups. (...) In nodule density characterization (which classify nodules into solid, part-solid, ground glass opacity and calcified nodules), accuracy (defined as true positive nodules divided by gold standard nodules) was used to depict nodule characterization capability. For malignancy characterization, nodules were classified as benign and malignant, sensitivity, specificity, accuracy and AUC were used to evaluate testing performance. 2) Subtle case performances: e.g. easily missed but important lesions like GGN, nodules in close proximity to vessels, nodules in close proximity to cavity etc.

Early lung cancer characterization (including differentiating benign from malignant nodules) is also critical because this would dramatically affect treatment selection and patient outcome. (...) The AI output should include information about lesions position, long axis diameter, classification, density and malignancy probability. 3.2 Test Data Labels 1) For clinical evaluation of AI algorithm for lung nodule detection, gold standard labelling is obtained from a panel of experts. (...)

Of those 60,000 deaths, an estimated 48,000 are caused by malignant melanomas, and 12,000 by skin carcinomas. (...) The most serious consequence of excess UVR is malignant melanoma, which has high cure rates only if detected early. (...) The main three, which cause the greatest burden of disease from UVR, are cutaneous malignant melanomas, and non-melanoma skin cancers developing in different cell layers of the skin (squamous cell carcinomas and basal cell carcinomas).

Worldwide, WHO says, there are an estimated 132 000 cases of malignant melanoma (the most dangerous form of skin cancer) annually, and an estimated 66 000 deaths from malignant melanoma and other skin cancers. (...) A study in Norway and Sweden, for example, found a significant increase in the risk of malignant melanoma among women who had regularly used sunbeds. (...) "In all of our actions, we are clear: avoid excess exposure to UV and, when you have to be in the sun, protect your skin. Malignant melanomas, other cancers and conditions are the consequence of not taking the proper precautions," added Dr Leitner.

Substances and mixtures which have induced benign and malignant tumours in well performed experimental studies on animals are considered also to be presumed or suspected human carcinogens unless there is strong evidence that the mechanism of tumour formation is not relevant for humans. [Source: GHS] Carcinogen: Agent (chemical, physical, or biological) that is capable of increasing the incidence of malignant neoplasms, thus causing cancer. [Source: IUPAC] Carcinogenicity test: Long-term (chronic) test designed to detect any possible carcinogenic effect of a test substance.

In 2000, 5.3 million men and 4.7 million women developed a malignant tumour and altogether 6.2 million died from the disease. (...) In developed countries, cancers caused by chronic infections only amount to approximately 8 per cent of all malignancies. This discrepancy is particularly evident for cervical cancer. (...) Nutrition and cancer – the good news Stomach cancer is among the most common malignancies worldwide, with some 870,000 cases every year, and 650,000 deaths.
