Air pollution from rapid industrialization in China and cigarette smoking led to increased environmental exposure to carcinogens,such as Benzo(a)pyrene(B[a]P),nickel,arsenic,can increase the risk for lung cancer.And lung cancer has replaced liver cancer as the leading cause of death among the patients with malignant tumors in China.According to recent studies,carcinogens play major roles in the development of lung cancer and chronic inflammation mediates the carcinogenesis partly.Carcinogen… Expand

AFAP1-AS1, a long noncoding RNA upregulated in lung cancer and promotes invasion and metastasis
TLDR
The number of noncoding RNAs functionally implicated in lung cancer progression is extended and the role of AFAP1-AS1 is highlighted as potential prognostic biomarker and therapeutic target of lung cancer. Expand
The role of long non-coding RNA AFAP1-AS1 in human malignant tumors.
TLDR
LncRNA AFAP1-AS1 is an oncogene in tumors that have been studied so far, and it may act as a useful tumor biomarker and therapeutic target. Expand
