Telomeres Might Predict Lung Cancer Recurrence
Telomeres are sections of DNA that tell an interesting story about lifespan. Shorter telomeres usually suggest a shorter life -- but new research by a Wilmot lung cancer expert shows that longer telomeres might be a promising biomarker for a recurrence of early stage lung cancer.
A new medical imaging technology – dubbed multispectral photoacoustic imaging – has demonstrated that it can successfully identify healthy vs. cancerous prostate tissue and could represent a less invasive and more accurate way to screen for the disease.
