Building a better mouse model of lung cancer: FHIT counts
Scientists have identified some of the very earliest genetic changes involved in the development of lung cancer and have incorporated them into a new strain of mouse that develops the disease in much the same way that humans do.
The discoveries, reported in the August 1 issue of Cancer Research, ...
