By Forming Clots in Tumors, Immune Cell Aids Lung Cancer's Spread

University of North Carolina Health Care System

In the journal Nature Communications, researchers report for a particular subset of lung cancer tumors, there is a high prevalence of immune cells called inflammatory monocytes. These immune cells, which normally help to build clotting scaffolds to promote wound healing, also make it possible for tumor cells to migrate and spread to other parts of the body.

Cancer Cells Co-Opt Pain-Sensing ‘Wasabi Receptor’ to Survive Oxidative Stress

Harvard Medical School

Some cancers express unusually high levels of a neural calcium channel known as the ‘wasabi receptor,’ which plays a role in detecting pain, cold and other sensations. New research finds cancer cells co-opt this neural channel to increase their tolerance against toxic oxidative stress.

Widely Used E-cigarette Flavoring Impairs Lung Function

American Thoracic Society (ATS)

A new study has found that a common e-cigarette flavoring that has chemical characteristics similar to toxic chemicals found in cigarette smoke disrupts an important mechanism of the lungs’ anti-bacterial defense system. The study was presented at the 2018 American Thoracic Society International Conference.

Israeli and American Researchers Have Successfully Curbed Mesothelioma in Model Animals

American Technion Society

A team led by researchers from the Technion and NYU Langone has successfully impeded the development of mesothelioma - a disease for which there is currently no effective treatment. Mesothelioma, a cancer that develops in the thin membrane that protects the internal organs of the chest and abdomen, is in most cases caused by exposure to asbestos.

AVATS Surgery Shown to Be Option for Patients Deemed “Inoperable”

American Thoracic Society (ATS)

A new study demonstrates that awake video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (AVATS) – a minimally invasive procedure that is done under local anesthesia and sedation – is a safe and effective alternative for patients with poor lung function and lung cancer who would normally be precluded from having surgery due to its risks. The study was presented at the 2018 American Thoracic Society International Conference.
