(Ivanhoe Newswire) — Smoking is a well-known risk factor for lung cancer, but about 25% of all lung cancer patients have never smoked. According to this study, a gene fusion event could explain a significant proportion of these lung cancer cases, and may serve as a target for new therapies. Recent strides have been made to identify gene mutation events driving cases of lung adenocarcinoma in never-smokers, but the underlying genetic events leading to these lung cancers still remain...
