New Podcast on Chemo-Induced Pneumonitis
Author
Howard (Jack) West, MD

Here's the beginning of a new podcast with my friend, Dr. Gerard Silvestri, who is a pulmonologist at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston.  He did a live webinar with us a few months ago, co-sponsored by GRACE and the LUNGevity Foundation, on the topic of pulmonary complications from lung cancer treatment, with the first part of his presentation focusing on chemotherapy-induced pneumonitis (lung inflammation), which we haven't spent a lot of time talking about.  

Here's the first podcast from his presentation, in both video and audio podcast formats, as well as the transcript and figures from the program.

We'll continue with further discussion of lung-related complications from treatment of lung cancer in the next podcast, which will cover targeted therapies.
