This 5-part Lung Cancer Supplement includes
an overview of what is new in lung cancer from the most recent ESMO
meeting (October 2011), authored by Gwyn Bebb, MA, BMBCh, PhD, FRCPC.
A summary by Peter Ellis, MBBS, MMed, PhD, FRACP, PRCPC, on the
current challenges posed by metastatic NSCLC reflects the many strides
that have been made in improving treatment options. Christopher
W. Lee, MD, FRCPC, and Nimira Alimohamed, MD, with Gwyn Bebb, MA,
BMBCh, PhD, FRCPC, address mesothelioma and small cell lung cancer
respectively, malignancies where progress seems disappointingly
slower. Julia Devonish, PhD, Nicole Culos-Reed, PhD, and Gwyn Bebb,
MA, BMBCh, PhD, FRCPC, review the emerging role of physical activity
in lung cancer, an intervention that is validated in other cancers,
but has yet to make useful inroads in lung cancer management. The
fact that this topic is now entering consciousness is testament
in itself that expectations in lung cancer management are growing.
We need to tout our successes in lung cancer treatment and let our
marathon-running lung cancer survivors start to take the limelight.
