Catalyst will use Biocept's liquid biopsy platform to screen for cancer in patients in a clinical study of its rare disease drug Firdapse.

The circulating tumor cell-based classifier had an overall accuracy of 89 percent for small-cell lung cancer patients, the researchers reported.

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.
