Dr. Mary Pinder, from Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL, was one of the investigators very involved in a high profile trial called MADeIT, which directly tested whether we might do better with chemo by selecting a particular regimen for each patient based on molecular markers for the cancer. Here’s her discussion of the trial, along with another from Spain presented at ASCO 2013 that demonstrated no improvement in outcomes with this approach, and the implications of this work for treatment of advanced NSCLC today: (Click link above to view the video)

More to come, including some video summaries that describe more encouraging results!
