Charles Swanton, ESMO 2022: Mechanism of action and an actionable inflammatory axis for air pollution may induce NSCLC in never-smokers
The mechanistic basis for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) initiation in never smokers is unknown. The air pollutant, particulate matter, is known to be associated with the risk of NSCLC, however a direct cause and mechanism remains difficult to achieve. Prof. Charles Swanton (Francis Crick Institute, London, UK) joins touchONCOLOGY to discuss his study into […]
