Cancer DNA study helps uncover specific chemical causes of tumors

New research reveals specific DNA signatures of 41 different carcinogenic agents can be identified in tumors

We have known for well over a century that exposure to certain environmental agents can result in DNA mutations that ultimately cause cancer. However, it has been tricky to explicitly link specific tumors to individual culprits, such as UV light or tobacco smoke. Now a team of UK scientists has for the first time developed a way to identify specific mutational signatures in tumors that can be linked to certain carcinogens.
