Lung Cancer 2012: Traditional and Novel Approaches
Lung cancer is a very common malignancy. Treatments are currently available for patients with all stages of disease, and much research is also being conducted to improve currently available therapies. This talk discusses currently available therapies, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The role of surgical treatment and non-surgical interventional procedures for early and late stage lung cancer are covered. Targeted therapy has recently entered clinical practice. These advances are discussed, as well as clinical trials available at UCLA applying these types of approaches. Clinical trials often provide opportunities for patients to advance the science of lung cancer and to participate in trials of medications at an early stage of development.
Insights Into Cancer lectures are held in the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Auditorium, B Level, Room B130, 757 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90095.
