Abstract:

A research team led by scientists at MD Anderson Cancer Center report that 2 specific common inherited genetic variations are associated with increased risk of lung cancer for smokers and former smokers. Dr. Amos talks about how the findings are a major step forward in identifying those at high risk for non-small cell lung cancer and for understanding how smoking and genetic factors interact to cause the disease.
