  • 20 Years in the Making, Lung Cancer Renders Treatments Ineffective; Researchers Push for Early Detection

    Targeting biomarkers, or the unique identifying genetic traits of tumors, in the treatment of lung cancer is touted as the best way to attack the aggressive cancer. However, researchers are now reporting that unless the cancer is identified and treated early, multiple biomarkers take over the tumors leaving many of the cancer cells unaffected by …

  • MicroRNA Research Could Lead to New Treatment for Mesothelioma

    In the quest for an effective treatment against lung cancer and mesothelioma, researchers often dig deep into the genetic makeup of the diseases to understand how they grow. By figuring that out, they can then counteract the aggressive cancers by halting the growth. Researchers now say that it is a pair of microRNAs that should …
