Primary pleural melanoma a 1st reported case and literature review

, : Primary pleural melanoma a 1st reported case and literature review. Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery 75(6): 827-831

Although metastatic pulmonary and pleural melanoma have previously been noted, primary pleural melanoma has not been reported. An extracutaneous response to adriamycin chemotherapy by melanoma was documented. The patient demonstrated a continued objective response and remained in remission for 10 mo. His death was not related to the tumor, and at autopsy there was no gross or microscopic evidence of other organ involvement or origin. Previously reported unusual primary sites associated with this tumor are reviewed, and the established criteria for determination of a primary site in the lung are reiterated. Possibilities of prior unrecognized presence of a primary site are discussed.

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) development is biased toward selecting constructs that elicit the highest magnitude of T-cell functional outputs. Here, we show that components of CAR extracellular spacer and cytoplasmic signaling domain modulate,...
