Paula Ugalde, WCLC 2021: Screening, Incidental Nodules, and Adjuvant Therapy for Early-Stage Lung Cancer
touchONCOLOGY joins Dr Paula Ugalde (Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA) at WCLC 2021 to discuss her presentation on screening, incidental nodules and adjuvant therapy for early-stage lung cancer.
1. Early detection of lung cancer improves disease outcomes – when and in which patients do you perform screening? (00:15-00:46)
2. How often do you encounter incidental lung nodules? (00:46-01:22)
3. Please can you outline your approach to the management of patients with incidental nodules? (01:22-02:16)
4. What is the role of adjuvant therapy for early-stage lung cancer? (02:16-03:20)
5. What unmet needs remain in the detection and treatment of early-stage lung cancer? (03:20-04:50)

Charles Swanton, ESMO 2022: Mechanism of action and an actionable inflammatory axis for air pollution may induce NSCLC in never-smokers
The mechanistic basis for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) initiation in never smokers is unknown. The air pollutant, particulate matter, is known to be associated with the risk of NSCLC, however a direct cause and mechanism remains difficult to achieve. Prof. Charles Swanton (Francis Crick Institute, London, UK) joins touchONCOLOGY to discuss his study into […]
