Premalignant Lung Cancer DNA Found by Johns Hopkins Team

By |September 29th, 2015|DNA, Lung Cancer|Comments Off on Premalignant Lung Cancer DNA Found by Johns Hopkins Team

Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is a promising biomarker in oncology. ctDNA carries genetic information from malignant tumors and can be obtained from peripheral blood samples. A team of Johns Hopkins scientists worked with tissue, blood and DNA from six people with precancerous and cancerous lung lesions, and identified DNA alterations that were in premalignant lung [...]
