Lung Cancer

Lung cancer discovery points to a better way to personalise immunotherapy

New research by our scientists may have identified a new way to predict which patients might benefit from certain immunotherapies, and those who likely won’t.

Tumour characteristics could predict immunotherapy success in lung cancer

The molecular make-up of lung tumours could help identify patients who might benefit from immunotherapy treatment up front, a new study has found.

Discovery could guide immunotherapy for lung cancer

Scientists have discovered a new type of immune cell that could predict which lung cancer patients will benefit most from immunotherapy treatment.

Experimental blood test could offer a glimpse of the future for doctors treating lung cancer

An experimental blood test could offer a way to detect early signs that patients’ lung cancers will return after treatment.

Tracing genetic chaos in 100 lung cancer patients could help predict survival

By tracing genetic chaos over time our scientists may have found a way to help predict lung cancer survival.
