Dr. Suresh Ramalingam on Personalizing First Line Therapy for Advanced NSCLC: Podcast Available
Author
Howard (Jack) West, MD

I'm very pleased to offer the excellent podcast produced from the recent webinar by Dr. Suresh Ramalingam, a leader in the lung cancer field who heads the Thoracic Oncology Program at Emory University in Atlanta. He's also a good friend I've known since our fellowship training days, and he was kind and generous enough to refuse the honorarium we offered for his participation, instead requesting that it be donated back and used for other GRACE programs. Instead, he was happy to do this entirely out of a commitment to the lung cancer community. This is part of a small series of programs supported by an educational grant from Eli Lilly, so we are now enabled to do an additional program because of his generosity.

His webinar provides a very brief historical overview of NSCLC in general and then advanced NSCLC in particular, including a historical perspective of the evolving standards of care first with chemotherapy alone, and then with the integration of targeted therapies. He describes how our approach now individualizes our treatment recommendations based on such issues as particular NSCLC histology, molecular factors, performance status, and sometimes age to offer what we hope will deliver the best combination of efficacy and safety for a patient.

Here is the audio and video versions of the podcast, along with the transcript and figures for the program.
