Dr. Heinzerling on the Development of New Treatments in Early-Stage Lung Cancer
Josh H. Heinzerling, MD
Josh H. Heinzerling, MD, Department of Radiation Oncology, Levine Cancer Institute, discusses the development of new treatment regimens for patients with early-stage lung cancer.
There is a lot of work to do in earlier stages of disease, states Heinzerling. As CT screening is being adopted nationwide, more work will need to be done as this is going to shift the patient spectrum from stage IV disease to stage I, II, or III disease.
According to Heinzerling, the hope is there will be early-stage treatments and better cure rates.
