Lung cancer tumor growth halved with new approach

In the new research, Chandrasekhar Kanduri — a professor of medical biochemistry and cell biology — and colleagues saw that by downregulating noncoding RNA activity, they were able to reduce cancer growth in a mouse model of lung cancer by 40 to 50 percent which is a significant amount.
According to Kanduri, "This link [between noncoding RNA and cancer] is known, but no one has made such a broad and extensive analysis previously, nor examined long noncoding RNAs so specifically."
