London: Scientists claim to have carried out a first-of-its-kind study of a patient with lungcancer, who never smoked. An international team has sequenced the entire DNA and RNA of the 61-year-old woman with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the lung, the findings of which are published in the `Journal of Thoracic Oncology`. The patient never smoked and her lung cancer had entered her bloodstream and spread to other parts of her body. She was treated with several types of chemotherapy. In fact, the study used Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS), also called Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), to look at all 3 billion chemical bases of the patient`s normal, as well as the patient`s tumour DNA.
