Small Cell Lung Cancer
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a particularly aggressive tumour, which has so far been treated with standardised measures. A study led by MedUni Vienna has shown for the first time that different SCLC subtypes have specific molecular characteristics, which is why those affected respond in different ways to cancer treatment. This discovery, published in the Clinical and Translational Medicine journal, has opened up new options for the development of more personalised treatment for this cancer, which is characterised by an unusually high rate of mortality. Earlier this year, a study by an international team of scientists led by MedUni
