How thawing Arctic permafrost could cause lung cancer
“Among the cataclysmic effects of global warming, not many of us have considered a potential rise in cancer cases. And yet, thawing permafrost in the Arctic could provoke just that. The layer, which keeps the ground frozen in the polar region all year round, traps in a variety of gases, preventing them from being emitted into the atmosphere.”

Innovative ‘Trojan Horse’ Method Developed to Target Lung Cancer More Effectively
“Researchers have developed a groundbreaking ‘Trojan horse’ approach to target lung cancer cells with precision. This innovative method shows promise in reducing tumor size and improving patient outcomes. Despite challenges, this approach offers hope in the fight against lung cancer.”

City of Hope launches life-saving mobile cancer unit that brings screenings to your doorstep
“LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Getting regular screenings are key to catching cancer early, but many people put off going to the doctor. Now, City of Hope is launching its first mobile cancer screening unit with the aim of saving lives.

Pharmacy Focus: Oncology Edition- Latest Updates in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Treatment
“ Key Takeaways
Pharmacists play an important role in chemotherapy management for NSCLC patients, but insurance coverage can be a barrier.
Osimertinib in combination with chemotherapy received FDA approval for locally advanced or metastatic EGFR-mutated NSCLC and showed improved progression-free survival.
Datopotamab deruxtecan received FDA approval for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic non-squamous NSCLC.
A phase 3 trial of sacituzumab govitecan failed to meet its primary endpoint of improved overall survival in metastatic NSCLC, though some benefit was seen in squamous and non-squamous subgroups.”

Guiding Lung Cancer Treatment During Pregnancy
“Lung cancer is on the rise in young people, particularly those who are assigned female at birth (AFAB). As a result, there is an increase in the number of people who are pregnant and have lung cancer. Florez has become known for her care of pregnant lung cancer patients and has begun a quest to determine the best approach to their treatment.”

Rural ground wells increase risk of higher radon levels, study finds
“’The air around the groundwater well itself is acting as a sort of superhighway,’ Calgary study author says”

A dynamic nomogram predicting symptomatic pneumonia in patients with lung cancer receiving thoracic radiation
“The most common and potentially fatal side effect of thoracic radiation therapy is radiation pneumonitis (RP). Due to the lack of effective treatments, predicting radiation pneumonitis is crucial. This study aimed to develop a dynamic nomogram to accurately predict symptomatic pneumonitis (RP ≥ 2) following thoracic radiotherapy for lung cancer patients.”

How chronic stress spreads cancer
“Stress is inevitable. But too much of it can be terrible for our health. Chronic stress can increase our risk for heart disease and strokes. It may also help cancer spread. How this works has remained a mystery—a challenge for cancer care.”
