Discovery of a new gene critical in the development of lung and pancreatic cancers

(Universidad de Navarra) Researchers at the Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA) of the University of Navarra (Spain) have identified a critical gene, FOSL1, in the development of lung and pancreatic cancer. The work, published in Nature Communications, shows that the inhibition of FOSL1 brings about a great reduction in the size of the tumors in the lungs and pancreas. Thus, the results present this gene as a new molecular target to which new drugs should be directed.
