Researchers uncover a potential treatment for an aggressive form of lung cancer

 

Researchers at the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern (CRI) have discovered a new metabolic vulnerability in a highly aggressive form of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Errant DNA boosts immunotherapy effectiveness

Errant DNA boosts immunotherapy effectiveness

 

DNA that ends up where it doesn’t belong in cancer cells can unleash an immune response that makes tumors more susceptible to immunotherapy, the results of two UT Southwestern studies indicate.
