What is the value of maintenance therapy in advanced NSCLC, and who should get it?

H. Jack West, MD, Founder, President and CEO

We've covered the question of maintenance therapy for lung cancer in many posts over the past 5-6 years as it has evolved from a concept with little evidence to a standard of care, but it is difficult to get a good summary of the big picture. This presentation is my attempt to distill the field into the most important principles.

 

And for those who want to download the slides in an easily printable form, here's the slide set as a pdf file: Maintenance therapy primer

I hope you find this presentation helpful. Please ask questions, add comments, and share it with those who you think would learn from it.

Finally, let me know if you have any suggested topics for a future "slidedoc" presentation.
