    Novel Treatment Options for Lung Cancer in Texas Patients

    Lung cancer causes high mortality levels and deaths from cancer across the world. Every year, there are about 1.6 million new cases of the disease, and the number keeps going up. Lung cancer can occur as non-small cell carcinoma or small cell carcinoma. Non-small cell carcinoma includes two subtypes known as squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.

    Patients with lung cancer are often diagnosed when the disease is in its advanced phases, making it difficult to cure. However, new research is ongoing to develop new therapeutic options that will offer effective treatment for the disease.

    Here are some of the new treatment options effective for treating lung cancer:

    Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VSATS) – This option is used by doctors to treat certain small lung tumors. During the procedure, parts of the lung are removed through small incisions. It is a less-painful process and requires takes a short time. A newer approach, known as robotic assisted surgery is also available. This is where the doctor uses a control panel with robotic arms to maneuver long surgical instruments and remove tumor cells.

    Targeted therapy – New targeted therapy drugs have been developed and approved for use in the treatment of lung cancer. They include sorafenib, cabozantinib, vandetanib, and sunitinib. Since lung cancer metastasizes to the brain and causes worse outcomes for patients, brain radiation is often used to treat the condition. New radiation techniques such as SRS are now being used to treat specific tumors while sparing the healthy part of the brain.

    A new drug known as AZD3759 has shown promising results in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer with the EGFR gene and spread to the brain. The drug can cross the blood-brain barrier and treat the disease.

    Immune checkpoint inhibitors – Immune checkpoint inhibitors help to block the PD-L1 protein to allow immune system cells (T cells) to kill cancer cells. The T cells help the immune system to identify cancerous cells and attack them. 

    More research is ongoing in clinical trials to find even more effective treatment options for different types of cancer. This will ensure excellent outcomes for patients.
