Genetic mutations linked to salivary gland tumors may point to new therapies
Faculty members at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and other institutions have discovered links between a set of genes known to promote tumor growth and mucoepidermoid carcinoma, an oral cancer that affects the salivary glands. The discovery could help physicians develop new treatments that target the cancer’s underlying genetic causes.
