Book Description :

Lung cancer remains a major cause of death in of both women and men in our society. Lung cancer treatment paradigms have changed enormously as we’ve started to understand the genetic complexity and the multiple driver mutations influencing the disease. Therapeutics directed towards, or to inhibit signaling pathways has resulted in increased life spans for our patients. Over the last two decades, we have gone from simple chemotherapy used to treat all, to a personalized medicine approach for the majority. For non-small cell lung cancer patients without driver mutations, the world of immune oncology has arrived. These improved long-term outcomes mean that now our lung cancer patients can live with their cancers, but without progression. The aim of this book is to catalogue the current state of knowledge for the many facets of advanced lung cancer. It describes current treatment approaches for driver mutations, rare mutations, and rare thoracic malignancies such as neuroendocrine tumors. Most importantly, this book addresses the topics of palliative treatment and care which allow our patients to enjoy longer survival with the highest quality of life. We hope you enjoy this e-book. The future is brighter for lung cancer patients and as lung cancer specialists; we finally feel sense optimism about treatment options for our patients.

Book Description :

Defining the Lung Cancer Problem 1 Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the world. It kills almost as many Americans as cancers of the breast, prostate, colon, rectum, pancreas, and 2 kidney combined, and accounts for 28.6% of all US cancer deaths. With an increase in the 5-year relative survival rate from 13% to only 16% in the more than 2 30 years from 1974 to the present, it will take us another 840 years to eradicate lung cancer deaths if we do not improve the current rate of progress. As discussed in this text, lung cancer prevention has received substantial att- tion. The decrease in smoking in recent decades has helped, but smoking is not the only problem. Lung cancer in people who have never smoked is currently the 5th 3 leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Several factors contribute to the lethality of lung cancer, including the rapidity of tumor growth, advanced stage at diagnosis (due to nonspecificity of early sy- toms and the uncertain efficacy of screening), early development of metastases, and resistance to therapy. Several chapters in this book discuss new molecular targets that may be potentially exploitable in the future, as well as discussing our track record to date in exploiting them.

Book Description :

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related mortality in Canada and USA. Majority of the patients present in advanced stage of the disease and of these only about 2% will be alive at 5 years. NSCLC is the most common form of lung cancer, accounting for approximately 87% of cases. Systemic chemotherapies have been used to treat metastatic NSCLC for decades, but the improvements of outcomes have reached a plateau. Recent advances in understanding signalling pathways for malignant cells, their interconections,the importance of various receptors and biomarkers and the interplay between various oncogenes have led to the development of targeted treatments that are improving both efficacy and safety of the treatments. Knowledge about the advantages of treatments with the targeted agents in metastatic NSCLC is growing rapidly. Combining various targeted agents or sequencing them properly will be important in the era of personalised medicine and overcoming development of the resistence to various targeted agents will be challenging. The importance of a team work,from the diagnosis through various treatments, to supportive care, from the interventional radiologists, pneumologists or surgeons, who have to obtain a satisfactory tumor tissue specimen, to pathologists, radiation and medical oncologists, to supportive care specialists, will be described in our publications. We will cover completely present and future approaches to personalised medicine in this rapidly evolving field of metastatic NSCLC.

Book Description :

In many ways, the field of lung cancer research is leading the way in personalized oncologic care, with numerous new treatment strategies moving from clinical trials to standard clinical practice within the past 10 years; and, there are no indications of bench-to-bedside innovations slowing down. Handbook of Thoracic Oncology is a practical guide to the multidisciplinary management of patients with lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies. The content highlights the applications of both conventional and novel treatment strategies to the care of real-life patients with lung cancer. Unlike many oncology textbooks that exhaustively list studies of historical or failed approaches, this handbook focuses on the application of practical, current management options to specific patient subsets and the data that specifically support these strategies. The format is open and readable with bulleted points presenting overall treatment guidelines as well as more nuanced applications of these treatments to individual patient groups. The clear focus of this book is on the question that all oncologists ask themselves every day, “How do I take care of this person sitting in front of me?” This handbook is an indispensable guide for all oncologists and practitioners who regularly care for lung cancer patients and those suffering from mesothelioma, thymic tumors, and pulmonary neuro-endocrine tumors. Features: Delivers the need-to-know points of lung cancer screening, diagnosis and staging, and appropriate multidisciplinary management for all major thoracic malignancies Provides clinical pearls and treatment recommendations for patients who don’t ‘fit’ the standard guidelines Includes specific coverage on Management of Elderly and High-Risk Patients Prepares physicians to notice and eliminate common errors in clinical practice when managing patients with lung cancer and other thoracic tumors
