Advancements in NSCLC: In pursuit of a life for every patient

Improving NSCLC patient outcomes with targeted therapies

The latest episode of the EMJ podcast takes a deep dive into non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Described as the most common type of lung cancer accounting for 80-90% of all lung cancer cases(1), NSCLC outcomes have historically been poor. Patients are often diagnosed at later stages when surgery and radiotherapy, still the primary treatment modalities, are less applicable. But the situation is improving as newer immunotherapies and targeted therapies are changing the landscape of advanced NSCLC treatment.
