Origins of Small Cell Lung Cancer Subtypes Outlined

About 15 percent of lung cancers are classified as small cell lung cancer. Recent studies have indicated that four major subtypes of small cell lung cancer exist, yet approaches to tailor treatment of these subtypes have not yet become standard of care.

Now, scientists outline new findings “MYC Drives Temporal Evolution of Small Cell Lung Cancer Subtypes by Reprogramming Neuroendocrine Fate”in Cancer Cell about the origins of these lung cancer subtypes, which could pave the way for a better approach to study this disease.
