Dr. Mark G. Kris on the Future of Lung Cancer
Mark G. Kris, MD, William and Joy Ruane Chair in Thoracic Oncology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the future of lung cancer treatment at the 8th Annual New York Lung Cancer Symposium®.
Kris says lung cancer treatment is evolving dramatically. As physicians understand more about the biology of lung cancer, Kris says, they will be able to identify new targets. Once targets are identified, it will be easier to find a treatment that combats the effects of the target.
The use of multimodality therapy is already being implemented, but Kris believes that it will be used more frequently in the future.
