Highlights from the 17th Annual IASLC World Conference on Lung Cancer: International Focus on Emergi

Host: Jennifer Caudle, DO

Guest: Edward Garon, MD

Based on CDC data, lung cancer represents 13% of all cancers diagnosed worldwide, and 19% of all cancer deaths. With almost 225,000 cases and more than 158,000 deaths anticipated in 2016 in the United States alone, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-associated mortality. Non-small cell lung cancer represents approximately 85% of those cases, which makes the need to better identify and treat this disease a critical need. Join us as Dr. Caudle and Dr. Garon review data on non-small cell lung cancer presented at the 17th annual World Conference on Lung Cancer held in Vienna, Austria.
