Study identifies key protein that helps prevent lung cancer tumors from being destroyed

from Translational Genomics Research Institute via Medical Xpress

Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute have discovered a protein, Mcl-1, that helps enable one of the most common and deadly types of cancer to survive radiation and drug treatments. Non-small cell lung cancer makes up about 85 percent of the nearly 160,000 Americans expected to die this year from lung cancer, which by far kills more patients than any other type of cancer; accounting for more than 1 in 4 cancer deaths in the U.S. annually. The five-year survival rate for advanced NSCLC is less than 10 percent. more
