Genetic mutations could be responsible for driving tumour formation

A new study has found that genetic mutations in the form of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) may drive tumour formation by blurring cells’ perception of key growth signals. The study, conducted at the University of California, has important implications for understanding and ultimately targeting the defective mechanisms underlying many human cancers. Healthy cells rely on the central Ras/Erk growth ... Read More »
