 Study finds elevated lung cancer risk after lung transplantationStudy finds elevated lung cancer risk after lung transplantation
 
In an American Journal of Transplantation study, lung cancer risk was increased after lung transplantation, especially in the native (non-transplanted) lung of single lung transplant recipients.

Scientists in Anant Madabhushi's computational imaging lab at Case Western Reserve University have started thinking outside the box--or in their case, looking outside the tumor.
 
   Study: Low-calorie diet prevented asthma symptoms in miceStudy: Low-calorie diet prevented asthma symptoms in mice
 
Experimenting with mice, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers report that a low-calorie diet prevented asthma symptoms regardless of the diet's fat and sugar content. The researchers also say they found that obesity resulting from a high-calorie diet led to asthma symptoms in the animals by causing lung inflammation, and a drug that blocks inflammation eased those symptoms.

White blood cells linked to for asthma, allergies may be used to eliminate colon cancer cellsA new Tel Aviv University study finds that eosinophils -- white blood cells that may have played an evolutionary role in combating parasites, but which are today responsible for chronic asthma and modern allergies -- may be used to eliminate malignant colon cancer cells.

Russian researchers create intelligent software system for lung cancer diagnosticsResearches from Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University, Russian Academic Excellence Initiative participant, in collaboration with the radiologists from St.Petersburg Clinical Research for Specialized Types of Medical Care have developed an intelligent software system for lung cancer diagnostics.
 
 
 Graphene could hold key to unlock next generation of early lung cancer diagnosis
 
Graphene could hold key to unlock next generation of early lung cancer diagnosisThe wonder-material graphene could hold the key to unlocking the next generation of advanced, early stage lung cancer diagnosis. A team of scientists from the University of Exeter has developed a new technique that could create a highly sensitive graphene biosensor with the capability to detect molecules of the most common lung cancer biomarkers.
