Small cell lung cancer accounts for 14% of all lung cancers and is often rapidly resistant to chemotherapy, resulting in poor clinical outcomes.

Including smoking cessation with existing lung cancer screening efforts would reduce lung cancer mortality by 14 percent and increase life-years gained by 81 percent compared with screening alone, according to a study from Rafael Meza from the University of Michigan and colleagues and published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, a publication of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.
 
 New summary report highlights advances and challenges in small cell lung cancer research
 
New summary report highlights advances and challenges in small cell lung cancer researchIn 2017, a group of lung cancer experts posed the question: "Can recent advances in tumor biology that have led to progress treating non-small cell lung cancer translate into improved outcomes for small cell lung cancer?"
 
 
 New biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis of lung cancer identified
 
New biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis of lung cancer identifiedApplying bioinformatics to resolve biological problems. This is the objective of the research group of the University of Malaga "BI4NEXT", which, in one of its latest studies, developed in the Supercomputing and Bioinnovation Center based on biobank samples, has identified new biomarkers for the diagnosis, prognosis and even treatment of lung cancer.

Global study shows long-term survival benefit for a subset of patients with advanced lung cancerAccording to the results of a large, global study led by Yale Cancer Center researchers, even a tiny amount of a biomarker known as PD-L1 (programmed death-ligand1) can predict a long-term survival benefit from using pembrolizumab (Keytruda).
 
 
 Research opens up new prospects for prevention and treatment of bacterial pneumonia
 
Research opens up new prospects for prevention and treatment of bacterial pneumoniaResearchers from the Lille Centre for Infection and Immunity, INRAE and from Brazilian (Belo Horizonte), Scottish (Glasgow) and Danish (Copenhagen) laboratories have shown for the first time in mice that perturbation of the gut microbiota caused by the influenza virus favors secondary bacterial superinfection.
