Promising Novel Approaches to Lung Caner
January 23, 2018 | Online

Overview

Much has changed in the treatment landscape of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) over the last few years. Newer generations of oral drugs for patient with EGFR mutations or ALK translocations show better efficacy and safety. Immunotherapy is being integrated in every aspect of the management of this disease. Combination chemotherapy and immunotherapy has received FDA approval for frontline treatment. The challenge now is to decide what is the best treatment option for our patients and how to navigate this rapidly evolving field.
