Correlates of Prenatal and Early-Life Tobacco Smoke Exposure and Frequency of Common Gene Deletions in Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

We carried out a case-only analysis to explore whether prenatal and early-life tobacco smoke exposure influences the formation of leukemogenic genomic deletions. Somatic copy number of 8 genes frequently deleted in ALL (CDKN2A, ETV6, IKZF1, PAX5, RB1, BTG

The most common cause of cancer? Simple bad luck: Random mistakes in genetics are to blame, scientists say

"It is well-known that we must avoid environmental factors such as smoking".... Copying mistakes were linked to 77 per cent of pancreatic cancers but only 35 per cent of lung cancers. The latter was mostly triggered by smoking and other environmental fac

Epigenetics and allergy: from basic mechanisms to clinical applications

Smoking, either as prenatal and/or postnatal tobacco smoke exposure or in its active form, is another extrinsic factor known to increase the risk of allergic disorders, especially asthma [177–181], and its effects on the epigenetic status have been clear

Gene activity in the nose may signal lung cancer

Genetic changes in the cells lining the inside of the nose might someday help doctors diagnose lung cancer, a recent study suggests. “The idea that you don't have to sample the disease tissue but can diagnose presence of disease using relatively accessi

Nicotine Vapor Has Fewer Genetic Effects Than Cigarette Smoke

New evidence shows that in at least one area, gene expression, those groups should abandon their 'quit or die' mentality... Anisha Banerjee and coauthors from British American Tobacco R&D Centre (Southampton, U.K.) used a commercially available 3D airway

[UK] Revealed: Why you always want a cup of coffee after having a cigarette (and it's all to do with your genes)

Those who have the smoking gene are more likely to crave a latte from Starbucks, they claim. And it's because nicotine alters the way their body processes caffeine, causing people to drink more to get a boost, the study suggests.

Shared Gene Expression Alterations in Nasal and Bronchial Epithelium for Lung Cancer Detection

These results support that the airway epithelial field of lung cancer–associated injury in ever smokers extends to the nose and demonstrates the potential of using nasal gene expression as a noninvasive biomarker for lung cancer detection.

Nasal Swab Shows Promise in Confirming Lung Cancers

researchers now say it may someday be possible to quickly confirm the disease after a CT scan, by using a simple nasal swab. The key is DNA-based "biomarkers" in the nasal passages that appear to reveal whether a lung lesion is cancerous or not. "Nasal

Study finds biomarker for lung cancer detection in the nasal passages of smokers

A new nasal test may allow patients suspected of having lung cancer to undergo a simple swab of their nose to determine if they have the disease. Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have found that a genomic biomarker in the nasal
