Secondhand Smoke: Impacting Cancer Survivors1282A new study found disparities in secondhand smoke exposure among nonsmoking adult cancer survivors. Those who had a smoking-related cancer and those who were socioeconomically disadvantaged had higher rates of exposure.6/30/2017 2:46:25 PMhttps://www.aacrfoundation.org/Science/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspxhtmlFalseaspx<img alt="" src="/PublishingImages/News/1706044_Smoke_150x190_1.jpg" style="BORDER&#58;0px solid;" />Secondhand Smoke: Impacting Cancer SurvivorsA new study found disparities in secondhand smoke exposure among nonsmoking adult cancer survivors.

Predicting Responses to a Targeted Therapy1874A new study found that a decrease in a specific population of circulating tumor cells over the first two months of crizotinib treatment was associated with increased progression-free survival.5/23/2017 2:55:25 PMhttps://www.aacrfoundation.org/Science/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspxhtmlFalseaspx<img alt="" src="/PublishingImages/Science%20Stories/1705016_Biomarkers_150x190_1.jpg" style="BORDER&#58;0px solid;" />Predicting Responses to a Targeted TherapyA new study found that a decrease in a specific population of circulating tumor cells over the first two months of crizotinib treatment was associated with increased progression-free survival.67
