Dr. Giorgio Scagliotti from the University of Turin Gives 3 Important Lung Cancer Takeaway Points

Giorgio V. Scagliotti, MD, PhD, head of the Thoracic Oncology Unit, Department of Clinical and Biological Sciences, University of Turin, San Luigi Hospital, Orbassano, Italy, explains 3 lung cancer topics that require more awareness and research to produce optimal results in the future.

  1. Regardless of the cost a connection between early lung cancer detection and lower mortality needs to be established.
  2. To ensure the best treatment and diagnosis physicians need to refer every new patient with lung cancer to a multidisciplinary clinic.
  3. Further genomic investigation is needed and can increase survival in at least 30% of patients.
