Maintaining the cancers basic biological steps of tumor growth and survival such as proliferation invasion and migration can help keep patients alive for a longer period even in cases with cancer drugs according to a new study led by researchers in the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania along with Penn Medicine and GlaxoSmithKline.
The study published today in Cancer Discovery found men whose cancers were treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) had higher post-clinically-adjusted survival rates after 41 weeks of treatment compared to men who were treated with cancer-containing inhibitors such as pembrolizumab (Keytruda) carboplatin (Oscar) and carboplatin hydrochloride (C-HC)A:ROC-PCR-HSF as well as with no adjuvant for the latter.

In the last 10 years a rare subtype of lung cancer with high incidence in young adults has remained relatively uncommon but tumor growth in some patients was found to be increasing in combination with chemotherapy. The syndrome has now been described for the first time by researchers at Karolinska Institutet in an article in Cell Reports. The study is published in the highly respected journal Cell Reports.
Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related deaths among Western populations. Approximately one in every 2500 people in Sweden is diagnosed with the disease every year; in Sweden 15400 people die every year.
