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.
We all know that traveling to different time zones or working the night shift shakes up our body clocks. A new URMC study also shows that tobacco smoke can harm circadian rhythms, by changing gene expression patterns in lung tissue.
