Emilia Lim, PhD, UCL, London, UK, discusses encouraging findings on preventative measures of air pollution induced non-small cell lung cancer. Through a series of investigations, several genes relating to inflammation were found to be upregulated in both humans and mice exposed to air pollution, some of which may be targetable in cancer prevention measures. Currently, the inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β) is under investigation as a target for air pollution induced lung cancer prevention. This interview took place at the Molecular Analysis for Precision oncology (MAP) Congress 2022 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
