One hundred and fourteen patients were diagnosed with pulmonary cryptococcosis by PTNB or postoperative biopsy between January 2012 and December 2016 from Zhujiang Hospital of Southern Medical University, Second Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, and First Affiliated Hospital of Chengdu Medical College.
In our study, 114 patients with pulmonary cryptococcosis, proven by PTNB or postoperative biopsy, were screened and 85 patients were enrolled, 56 in CrAg+ group and 29 in CrAg− group.
Our study confirmed repeat PTNB was the effective way to fully understand the mechanisms of resistance and to allow discrimination of tumors with SCLC transformation.[2] The NGS results of consecutive repeat biopsy samples, which showed the presence of TP53 C176S and EGFR ex19del and the same change trend shared by them, confirmed that SCLC transformation is one caused by a phenotypic switch that originates from the common cell type rather than intratumor heterogeneity.
The advantages for Preterm Newly Born (PTNB) infants include the nutritional and immunological factors of human milk, its role in gastrointestinal maturation, the formation of mother-child affection, increase in neuropsychomotor development, anti-oxidant protection, less hospitalizations and re-hospitalizations, and lower rates in infection incidences (NASCIMENTO; ISSLER, 2003; SERRA; SCOCHI, 2004).
Depending on the infant's maturity and weight at birth coupled to factors during its intra-uterine life period, PTNB infants may have greater risks of interoccurrences during the neonatal period which may frequently prolong hospitalization and cause sequelae that impair the infant's evolution, including success in breastfeeding (ALVES et al., 2007).
Very few studies have investigated the duration of Exclusive Breastfeeding (EBF) or not, among PTNB infants in the Brazilian and international literature on the theme and still fewer on NBVLW infants (HILL et al., 1997; SANTORO JUNIOR; MARTINEZ, 2007; GOMES et al., 2009).
