The Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Lung Cancer Community


Figure 1.
Figure 1. Differentially expressed genes and immunosuppressive enrichment networks in lung cancer patients. The database was achieved from database of Gene Expression Profiling Interactive Analysis (GEPIA; Differential expression analysis was performed to evaluate the gene expression profile across all tumor lung cancer samples and normal tissues. Differential method analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used for tumor vs. paired normal samples. (a) Chromosomal distribution of gene expression plots. Default color: over-expressed genes (red); under-expressed genes (green). (b) Gene ontology biological process: immunosuppressive pathways involved of down-regulated genes in lung adenocarcinoma patients.
Figure 2.
Figure 2. The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on lung cancer research. Published literature was searched from PubMed database between November 2019 and February 10, 2021. All studies on COVID-19, lung cancer and combination of both COVID-19 and lung cancer were presented over time. (a) COVID-19 and lung cancer separately. (b) Studies on both COVID-19 and lung cancer. The trendlines were plotted based on Two Period Moving Average (2 Per. Mov. Aver.).
