Diagnosing Smoke-Less Lung Cancer
While smokers are the largest group of people diagnosed with lung cancer, surpirsingly individuals who have never smoked tobacco make up one quarter of all victims.

Beans Beans the Magic Fruit
Isoflavones from soybeans have an amplifying effect on radiation treatment for lung cancer. In a recent study, radiologists made a concoction out of natural soybean isoflavones, a type of plant estrogen found mainly in soybeans, and injected the lung cancer cells with the concoction before applying  radiation.
Illegal Drugs Aren't the Only Kind That Kill
Avastin®, a cancer drug, has been shown to increase patient death from adverse events when used in conjunction with chemotherapy or biological therapy, according to new analysis of previous studies.
The Worst Breath of All
Researchers are working to develop a new diagnostics platform to detect lung cancer earlier, including a device that detects protein biomarkers in exhaled air.
Is Anti-Estrogen Therapy Also Anti-Lung Cancer?
The anti-estrogen drug (tamoxifen) that helped transform breast cancer treatment may also reduce the risk of dying from lung cancer, according to a new study.
Lung-Cancer Link: TB or not TB?
