Guest LCSC Info Posted May 8, 2012 Share Posted May 8, 2012 Panel Discussions on Molecular Markers in Advanced Lung Cancer: Check them out! May 4th, 2012 - by Dr. Jack West http://blog.lungevity.org/2012/05/04/pa ... -them-out/ Here are a couple of additional installments from our special two hour webinar on molecular markers in advanced NSCLC, broadcast from the Santa Monica Targeted Therapies in Lung Cancer conference and featuring four great panelists who joined me that day: Drs. Charlie Rudin, Johns Hopkins University Dr. Alice Shaw, Massachusetts General Hospital Dr. David Spigel, Sarah Cannon Cancer Center Dr. Glen Goss, University of Ottawa, and head of NCI-Canada’s Lung Cancer Committee Part three of our program includes some debate on the merits of uniform vs. more selective testing of “druggable” targets, as well as a discussion of whether to favor simultaneous testing for molecular targets vs. a sequential, stepwise approach (because the key relevant targets are mutually exclusive). We also review the challenge of delays in treatment that can emerge as a byproduct of weeks of up front testing. At the link above you’ll find the audio and video versions of the podcast, along with the transcript and figures for this activity.

I hope these podcasts are interesting and helpful! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
