Description: Standard chemo-radiation therapies for lung cancer present a host of side effects and problems with toxicity for patients. Fortunately, a lot of research is being done on proton beam therapy, which offers the ability to better concentrate the dose of radiation on the tumor and spare surrounding tissue. In this video, Dr. Corey Langer of the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania gives an update on the status of this therapy and what studies need to happen before it can be used more widely to treat locally advanced, non-small cell lung cancer. He also shares his views on complementary therapies and the need for more research to understand their effectiveness. Watch now.
