Semmelweis University Contributes to Comprehensive Study on the Main Causes of Lung Cancer
The results of a Central-European co-operation were published in a report issued by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO). A comprehensive study has been prepared on the genetic disorder mainly responsible for lung cancer by the researchers of Semmelweis University, the National Koranyi Institute of TB and Pulmonology, the National Institute of Oncology and the University of Vienna. So far twenty rare genetic mutations have been identified, which implies the possibility of increasing the number of patients eligible for the latest biological treatment. The study was published in the official journal of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC), the Journal of Thoracic Oncology.
