A minimally invasive, high-performance intervention for staging lung cancer

Endoscopic biopsy of lymph nodes between the two lungs (mediastinum) is a sensitive and accurate technique that can replace mediastinal surgery for staging lung cancer in patients with potentially resectable tumours. Such were the conclusions of a prospective controlled trial conducted under Dr. Moishe Liberman, a researcher at the CHUM Research Centre (CRCHUM) and an Associate Professor at the Université de Montréal. ...

New Treatment Combination Benefited Patients With Lung Cancer

PHILADELPHIA — A combination of the EGFR-targeted anticancer therapeutics afatinib (Gilotrif) and cetuximab (Erbitux) yielded clinical responses in 29 percent of patients who had lung cancer harboring epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations that had stopped responding to the EGFR inhibitors erlotinib (Tarceva) and gefitinib (Iressa), according to data from a phase Ib clinical trial published in Cancer Discovery, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. ...
