Dr. Heather Wakelee: How Should We Use Molecular Marker Information for Management of Earlier Stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer?

Article

Dr. Heather Wakelee from Stanford University discusses the open question of whether patients with resectable or locally advanced NSCLC should have testing for molecular markers, as well as how we might use this information in clinical practice.

Webinar on Refining Prognosis of Early Stage Lung Cancer by Molecular Features, with Dr. Johannes Kratz

Article

The next live webinar to be done through the partnership of GRACE and LUNGevity Foundation will be on the timely subject of using molecular features of a resected non-small cell lung cancer in order to better understand the probability of the cancer recurring. This will be on November 14th, 7 PM Eastern/4 PM Pacific, and will hope to answer the question, "Could these molecular features improve upon current staging efforts to help us refine our recommendations of which patients should receive post-operative chemotherapy in order to reduce the chance of recurrence?"

Ongoing Great Panel Discussion from the Santa Monica Molecular Markers Webinar: Part 4

Here's the next installment of the panel discussion on molecular markers from the webinar in Santa Monica with Drs. Charlie Rudin, Alice Shaw, David Spigel, and Glen Goss.  We continued our animated discussion on the promise as well as the pitfalls of broadening the use of molecular markers in routine practice of managing patients with advanced NSCLC.
