Lung cancer screening is an effective measure to reduce lung cancer mortality. Currently, lung cancer screening is recommended internationally and nationally. China had launched a large-scale early diagnosis and early treatment of rural and urban lung cancer in 2009 and 2012. Yunnan Province participated in related projects in 2009 and 2014, but the results of large-scale lung cancer screening have not been reported in Yunnan Province. In this study, we participated in the National Key Public Health Program, Cancer Screening Program in Urban China and analyzed the results of lung cancer screening in 10,154 urban residents in Kunming, Yunnan Province from 2014 to 2018, and evaluated the screening effect of early diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer in urban. A total of 31,824 people with high risk of lung cancer were evaluated with 40-74 year-old population in Kunming. A high-risk group underwent low-dose spiral computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest, and analyze the high risk rate and detection rate. A total of 150,535 questionnaires were completed in 5 years, and 31,824 people with high risk of lung cancer were evaluated. The high-risk rate was 21.14%. A total of 10,154 low-dose spiral CT screenings were performed, with ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

Signaling in Adult Neurogenesis

Neural stem cells play a critical role in the production of neuronal cells in neurogenesis is of great importance. Of interest is the role signalling mechanisms in adult neurogenesis. Discover the latest research on signalling in adult neurogenesis.

Psychiatric Chronotherapy

Psychiatric Chronotherapy considers the circadian rhythm as a major factor for optimizing therapeutic efficacy of psychiatric interventions. Discover the latest research on Psychiatric Chronotherapy here.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
