A comprehensive genomic profiling of small cell lung cancer has found that nearly all tumors harbor inactivated TP53 and RB1 genes, along with other genetic mutations.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An international team of researchers led by Robert Plenge from Brigham and Women's Hospital uncovered nearly four dozen loci linked to risk of rheumatoid arthritis, bringing the total number of known risk loci for the disease to 101.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – By folding genomic information about patients' lung cancer tumors in with other clinical data to inform treatment choice, patients generally exhibited improved survival, researchers from the

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – By combing through drugs that have already undergone the approval process, researchers led by Stanford University's Julien Sage found that two therapies usually prescribed to treat depression may also help combat small-cell lung cancer, as they reported in Cancer D

Researchers from the MD Anderson Cancer Center have identified PARP1 and several other proteins as potential drug targets in small cell lung cancer using reverse-phase protein arrays to compare proteins in small cell and non-small cell lung cancer cell lines.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Although an aggressive form of lung cancer known as small-cell lung cancer is marked by high mutation rates, it's still possible to detect recurrent alterations affecting a few main pathways and processes in these cancers by bringing together different types of genomic
