Combination drug therapy overcomes drug-resistant lung cancer in the lab

Many types of lung cancer thwart even the most targeted of therapies due to drug resistance, but a group of UCSF scientists led by Sourav Bandyopadhyay, PhD, have now shown that adding a second drug into treatment regimens can overcome this resistance in lab-grown, lung cancer cell lines.

Research points to individualized treatments for curing TB

Tuberculosis is usually treated with a six month regimen of daily antibiotics, but millions of patients do not recover from the disease during treatment. Rada Savic’s team showed that adjusting the duration of this regimen based on disease severity could lead to better outcomes.
