Study Differentiates Gene Activity Between Scleroderma, Lung Cancer

Gene activity analysis has revealed similarities and differences between scleroderma and related lung cancer, a study reports. Similarities were related to enhanced immunity and weakened regulation of a cell’s life cycle, which suggested common mechanisms underlying the increased risk of lung cancer in these patients. In contrast, identified differences in gene activity may be used as novel biomarkers to distinguish lung diseases, investigators said. The study, “Integrative genomic expression analysis reveals stable differences between lung…
