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 team of researchers has successfully pinpointed the unique genetic characteristics of gliomas – a common and potentially deadly form of brain cancer. The findings present scientists with a rich new set of targets for new therapies.
