#LungCancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Australia, and it has the lowest survival of the top five most common cancers. No national screening program exists. A/Prof Gavin Wright @Clavikul discussed how we implement life-saving lung #cancer policy at a national level.
2/ It also represents stark inequities. Indigenous Australians are twice as likely to be diagnosed with lung cancer, and twice as likely to die from it as their non-Indigenous counterparts. More women die from lung cancer than breast, uterine and ovarian cancer combined.
3/ Lung cancer remains a source of shame and stigma, with the well-documented transfer of blame from Big Tobacco to individual patients still wreaking havoc; lung cancer results in the most distress/anxiety/depression of the top five cancers.

Major update for small cell #lung cancer! #LCSM

With @juliensage + @FoundationATCG, our paper now on @bioRxiv:

►Genomic analysis of *3,600* pts with SCLC; largest SCLC study to date!

►Multiple interesting findings discussed in this 🧵…
This study is unique in many ways:

> The #SCLC cohort studied came mostly from community sites --> representing a more typical “real-world” cohort of SCLC.
> The genomic data are tied to clinical data + outcomes.

To the best of our knowledge, our study analyzes the largest number of SCLC tumors from African ancestry to date:
> n=256 AFR cases
> 7.1% of the entire cohort
#Diversity in clinical studies is critical!!

Oggi vi parlo di cosa studiamo in laboratorio. Da oltre cinque anni in @operapadrepio con il team della dott.ssa Muscarella lavoriamo alle lesioni molecolari nel tumore polmonare di un gene chiamato #NRG1. Mi scuso in anticipo per alcuni tecnicismi che troverete. 1/18
Intro. In particolar modo il focus è sulle fusioni geniche che interessano riarrangiamenti a carico delle Neureguline (NRG1-4) recentemente descritti nel carcinoma polmonare non a piccole cellule (NSCLC). Ma andiamo per ordine, partendo dalle basi. 2/18
Le basi/1. Per fusione genica si intende un’alterazione in cui due geni si fondono andando a formare un gene “anomalo”, il più delle volte originatosi dalla prima metà di un gene e dalla seconda metà del secondo. 3/18

Very happy to present our #proteomics analysis of #lungcancer published today @NatureCancer!🙂
Here’s a walk-through: #MassSpec analysis covering almost 14k proteins in 141 NSCLC tumors revealed 6 proteome subtypes with distinct biology. 1/6
#NSCLC proteome subtypes are driven by histology, growth pattern, immune cell infiltration, driver mutations, oncogenic pathways, and cell types, suggesting potential clinical value for treatment stratification and #PrecisionMedicine. 2/6
Unexpectedly, #proteogenomics analysis revealed that high neoantigen burden was linked to global hypomethylation, and that complex neoantigens mapping to genomic regions normally not active in lung were produced in immune-cold subtypes. 3/6
