Most research on glioblastoma development, a complicated tumor of the brain with a poor prognosis, has focused on the gene transcription level, but scientists suggest that post-transcriptional regulation could be equally or even more important.
Smoking may be associated with the development of molecular features of cancer in the large airway epithelium.
The investigational drug ganetespib, a synthetic second-generation Hsp90 inhibitor, slowed the growth of cancer cells taken from non-small cell lung cancer tumors with a mutation in the KRAS gene.
Sorafenib was effective in patients with non-small cell lung cancer and a KRAS mutation, but survival rates were reportedly "unsatisfactory."
Researchers have begun to identify which mutations and pathway changes lead to lung cancer in never-smokers — a first step in developing potential therapeutic targets.
Multicentric carcinogenesis with the same genetic mutation appears to occur in lung adenocarcinoma.
A combination of drugs that target estrogen production significantly reduced the number of tobacco carcinogen-induced lung tumors in mice.
