Lung cancer - positive news

Post by pennycsf » Thu Apr 27, 2017 6:20 pm

Lung cancer remains one of the biggest cancer killers. Two important studies published yesterday, funded by Cancer Research UK, are throwing new light on the progress of the disease and its treatment.

Below you will find a report on the study which is charting the genetic progress of lung cancer tumour cells to see how these might be linked to survival.

We want to explore the relationship between a tumour’s genetic diversity and patient outcome
says Dr Mariam Jamal-Hanjani

And secondly, and linked to the above, is the development of a blood test which may help doctors predict whether a cancer will return.

Such good news. At our AGM this year our patron gave a talk on her research into lung cancer. She said that there had been a huge breakthrough then.
