Sleep apnea’s variable oxygen levels cause damage that is detectable at the tissue level. Although many other confounding factors exist, sleep apnea is shown to be an independent factor associated … Continue Reading Study shows that sleep apnea can help enable the spread of lung cancer cells.
Cancer is recognized globally as one of the most costly and deadly health problems, with lung cancer being the leading cause of cancer related deaths. Lung cancer is classified into … Continue Reading Biomarker for most common form of lung cancer in it’s early stages identified.
Survival rates for patients with lung cancer increase dramatically the earlier the disease is diagnosed, underscoring the need for effective biomarkers that can be used for detection. Now, scientists at … Continue Reading Researchers discover ‘highly effective’ new biomarker for lung cancer in human trials.
A new test co-developed by a Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) researcher will allow patients suspected of having lung cancer to be subjected to fewer and less-invasive tests to … Continue Reading Large-scale human trials validates the use of genomic-based test for lung cancer detection.
Scientists from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) have discovered a new strategy to fight cancer, which is very different from those described to date. Their work shows for … Continue Reading Researchers have successfully ‘uncapped’ telomeres in animal lung cancer model.
Lung cancer is the second most common type of cancer and the number one cause of cancer-related mortality. It is estimated that more than 158,000 people will die from lung … Continue Reading Researchers discover the mechanism controlling lung cancer stem cell growth.
A protein commonly found in human cells could be an important switch that activates cancer cell metastasis, according to a new study by researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute and … Continue Reading A new mechanism driving spread of cancer has been identified.
Cancers that have spread throughout the body, a process known as metastasis, are difficult, often impossible, to control. They are the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Twenty years ago, however, … Continue Reading Researchers use precision medicine-based microRNAs to limit cancer metastases.
Many recent studies showed that calorie restrictions reduce the incidence of cancer, whereas high-calorie diets cause obesity and diabetes, both of which increase the risk of developing cancers. However, tumour … Continue Reading A change of diet to unmask cancer vulnerabilities and reduce cancer risk.
Next generation sequencing in malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) tumours shows a complex mutational setting with a high number of genetic alterations in genes involved in DNA repair, cell survival and … Continue Reading Next generation sequencing used to map epigenetic methylation in malignant pleural mesothelioma.
A research team from the UCLA School of Dentistry has utilized a novel technology called electric field-induced release and measurement (EFIRM) to test lung cancer patients’ saliva for epidermal growth factor … Continue Reading Researchers develop saliva-based RNA test for lung cancer.
Analysis of 607 small cell lung cancer (SCLC) lung tumours and neuroendocrine tumours (NET) identified common molecular markers among both groups that could reveal new therapeutic targets for patients with … Continue Reading Multiple new molecular biomarkers identified for lung cancer in large-scale study.
Penn Medicine researchers are now able to identify cancerous tumours of the lung using infrared imaging that makes hidden tumours glow during surgery. In a pilot study, researchers performed the … Continue Reading Penn researchers use infrared imaging to detect lung tumours in humans.
Scientists at the Salk Institute have identified a gene responsible for stopping the movement of cancer from the lungs to other parts of the body, indicating a new way to … Continue Reading New gene discovered that stops the spread of deadly cancer.
