Tracing the Lineage of Lung Cancer Tumors

By Center for Individualized Medicine samuelsmith5209

    A diagnostic test based on chromosomal rearrangements can trace the lineage of lung cancer to determine whether two separate lung cancers in the same patient are independent tumors or a tumor that has spread to another region of the lung, a Mayo Clinic study has found. For patients with multiple tumors, that distinction […]
