Three new lung cancer genetic biomarkers identified

SNPs (single-nucleotide polymorphisms) are variations in our DNA that determine our susceptibility to developing some diseases. Using the largest genome-wide SNP-smoking interaction analysis reported for lung cancer, a research team has identified three n

Genome-wide interaction study of smoking behavior and non-small cell lung cancer risk in Caucasian population

The results from our study reinforce that gene-smoking interactions play important roles in the etiology of lung cancer and account for part of the missing heritability of this disease.

Three new lung cancer genetic biomarkers are identified in Dartmouth study

In their study, three novel SNPs (single-nucleotide polymorphisms), or variations in our DNA that underlie our susceptibility to developing disease, were identified in the interaction analysis, including two SNPs for non-small cell lung cancer risk and o

Maternal E-cigarette Exposure in Mice Alters DNA Methylation and Lung Cytokine Expression in Offspring.

we found that e-cigarette exposure during pregnancy adversely affected maternal and offspring lung health. As this occurred with both nicotine free and nicotine containing e-vapour the effects are likely due to by-products of vaporisation rather than nic

Cigarette Smoking alters Epigenetics

smoke from cigarettes actually changes the epigenetic makeup of DNA, thereby paving the road to lung cancer. Unfortunately, smoking is responsible for death in about 50% of the people who don’t quit. Unfortunately, second hand smoke affects children and
