Date:10/9/2007

e discovery could lead one day to predicting lung cancer prognosis and designing individual treatment.

"There is a search on to find the gene mutations involved in cancer," he said. "If you know what genes are malfunctioning in a cancer, it is useful in predicting prognosis, and you can tailor treatment to fit the abnormalities that are present in the tumor tissue."

Thun also said that knowing the genetic components of a cancer can help determining who's at risk for developing a specific malignancy.
