This study seeks to help researchers and clinicians better understand why an increasing number of young people are developing lung cancer. Specifically, we are looking to study the environmental and childhood exposures, and other risk factors for lung cancer in persons under age 40.
This study seeks to help researchers and clinicians to better understand this kind of cancer and to develop new future lung cancer treatments. Specifically, we are looking for genetic changes in the ALK gene that could help to understand why a cancer has developed drug resistance.
Two Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute research studies funded in part by the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation chosen for presentation at the May/June 2015 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting
According to a recent study in the Annals of Oncology, lung cancer fatalities are set to overtake breast cancer deaths among European women for the first time this year. It is predicted lung cancer deaths for women in Europe will reach 14.24 per 100,000 of the population in 2015.
The Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute (ALCMI) today launched a new study, the Genomics of Young Lung Cancer, to understand why lung cancer occurs in young adults, who quite often are athletic, never smokers and do not exhibit any of the known lung cancer genetic mutations.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and LOS ANGELES, Calif., Jan. 9, 2015 – Exosome Diagnostics, Inc., a developer of revolutionary, biofluid-based molecular diagnostics, today announced a strategic collaboration with the Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute (ALCMI) to accelerate the development of its lead plasma-based diagnostics in development for mutation detection and monitoring in patients with lung cancer.
