For example, as noted earlier, the small fraction of NSCLC patients carrying a chromosome rearrangement resulting from an ALK mutation will have a poor outcome with conventional therapy but will do well with a personalized treatment that includes Xalkori, which is ineffective in a majority of NSCLS
Among the topics are tumor micro-environment, racial and ethnic diversity, chemoradiotherapy for inoperable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLS
), epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors in treating NSCLS
The study analyzed progression-free survival and overall survival among 663 patients with advanced NSCLS
whose cancer was stable following treatment with a platinum-contain drug (such as cisplatin or carboplatin); 441 patients were randomly assigned to receive pemetrexed, and 22 patients received a placebo.
