Lung cancer: protein as potential tool for predicting survival

Vienna - The biomarker PD-1, a protein, could potentially be used to predict survival or disease-free survival of lung cancer patients who have had the tumour surgically removed. This is substantiated by the results of a study conducted under the direction of the Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) of MedUni Vienna and Vienna General Hospital, together with MedUni Graz and the University of Novi Sad. The paper was presented at the 17th World Conference on Lung Cancer, which is currently taking place in Vienna (4 – 7 December). ... Full story
