UNC scientists recommend rethinking brain MRI for early-stage lung cancer patients
UNC scientists report that in early stage, asymptomatic non-small cell lung cancer, early brain recurrences are potentially detectable prior to surgery and recommend that physicians consider including a routine pre-operative staging brain MRI. In addition, patients whose tumors are determined to be higher risk based on the findings at surgery, should consider post-operative MRI to offer early treatment of unrecognized metastasis.

Predictive biomarkers for lung cancer reported in laboratory finding
A team of scientists, including several from UNC Lineberger, has identified predictive genetic biomarkers in pre-clinical models that affect response to therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The study was done in parallel to an ongoing clinical trial among lung cancer patients at multiple institutions.

Molecular subtypes and genetic alterations may determine response to lung cancer therapy
Chapel Hill - Cancer therapies targeting specific molecular subtypes of the disease allow physicians to tailor treatment to a patient’s individual molecular profile. But scientists are finding that in many types of cancer the molecular subtypes are more varied than previously thought and contain further genetic alterations that can affect a patient’s response to therapy.

UNC study highlights diagnosis of lung cancer subtypes
In the processes of treating most cancers, one of the key pieces of information is the appearance of the tumor under the microscope using a technique called light microscopy. In lung cancer, for example, the appearance of the tumor determines both which chemotherapies are safe and which chemotherapies are effective. In addition, tumor appearance also suggests which patients should be tested for mutations that can be targeted by some of the most effective and safest drugs on the market.
