New Type of Lung Cancer Discovered

A bronchial tube in the mouse lung. Cells stained red and blue are part of the bronchial epithelium, or lining. This image demonstrates the existence among these cells of a rare cell type (stained blue-green), believed to be a tuft cell. Researchers have discovered a new type of lung cancer with origins in these cells, which overexpress a gene-regulating protein called POU2F3, a potential target for therapy.
