The lead author, Prof Corinne Faivre-Finn PhD of the Christie NHS Foundation Trust, will join us for the weekend and will discuss at a live journal hour Sunday September 17th at 11AM- 12PM Central Standard Time, 5-6 PM London. We will focus on the following topics:
T1. Chemoradiotherapy is the standard for limited stage small cell lung cancer. What do most people do currently for the radiation and chemotherapy regimens?
T2. What were the aim and methods of this study?
T3. What were the results, and how do they fit into current standards for treatment delivery?
T4. Failure rates remain high in both arms. What areas of future research in radiotherapy should we pursue to further improve outcomes in LS-SCLC?
We will start open chat 6 AM CST Saturday September 16th to include global participation.
