Older Early-Stage NSCLC Patients Benefit From Adjuvant Chemotherapy

The platinum compound nedaplatin in combination with docetaxel improved outcomes over cisplatin and docetaxel in advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.

Data from the LUX-Lung 8 trial showed afatinib outperformed erlotinib with regard to both progression-free and overall survival in squamous cell lung cancer.

A new agent, AZD9291, showed promising clinical activity and progression-free survival in a study of patients with advanced stage, EGFR mutation-positive NSCLC.

A treatment analysis for early NSCLC found that wedge resection, along with Cs131 brachytherapy, and stereotactic body radiation therapy are all strong options.

In this podcast ahead of the 2015 ASCO Annual Meeting, we discuss CT screening for individuals with a high risk for lung cancer with Claudia I. Henschke, MD, PhD.

A prospective study found that a bronchial airway gene-expression classifier improved the diagnostic performance of bronchoscopy for lung cancer detection.

I was “foggy” on when and how to apply screens for lung cancer with low-dose CT, but a perfect model for a 3-question template provided answers.
