Attacking Tumors From the Inside

From left: Drs. Ralph Mason, Li Liu, and Yihang Guo, and researcher Jeni Gerberich used a new tool called multispectral optoacoustic tomography to examine non-small cell lung cancer tumors growing in mice. The study showed two experimental drugs can normalize the tumor microenvironment, helping to suppress a tumor's growth and spread.

The findings, published online in Cancer Research, highlight the use of this novel visualization tool as well as the promise of these drugs for NSCLC, a disease that remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. despite decades of research.  For full Campus News article click here.
