“Top 5 Things you Need to Know About Precision Medicine & Clinical Trials”

Research and drug discovery move fast.
It’s important to know all your options.

1950’s

Screening tests began with annual chest x-ray films and sputum cytology (examining a sample of mucus to see if abnormal cells are present)

1970’s

Chemotherapy and radiotherapy were proven to reduce tumor size in early stage lung cancer

1986

A receptor on lung cancer cells called epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is discovered and leads to the development of some of the first targeted drugs

2000’s

Multiple targeted therapies for specific indications in lung cancer are approved by the FDA

Cancer Testing

Why Should I Consider a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate whether a new drug, treatment, or combination of treatments is safe, effective and possibly better than the current standard. Almost all cancer drugs used today by patients were tested and made available through clinical trials. For many people, particularly those whose cancer has not responded to standard treatments, a clinical trial may be the best available treatment option.
