Yu, MD, medical oncologist with Memorial Sloan Kettering specializing in Lung Cancer and Targeted Therapies for Lung Cancer, and David Spigel, MD, Chief Scientific Officer, Director of the Lung Cancer Research Program and Principal Investigator with Sarah Cannon.

Drs. West, Yu and Spigel discuss trial updates in small cell lung cancer. For this video, the topic of discussion is SCLC and results from the Gronberg Study. The Gronberg study looked at lower vs. higher doses of twice daily chest radiation given concurrent with first cycles of chemo for limited stage small cell lung cancer.
