Oncology | Emerging Options for Treating Small Cell Lung Cancer
Although small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) responds well to standard treatments, such as platinum-based chemotherapy and radiation, median survival is 7 months and the 5-year relative survival rate is 6%.
After decades of near stagnation, immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have emerged as promising agents to control this disease.
Learn more about the potential role of immune checkpoint inhibitors through a patient case study of a 57-year-old man with a 45 pack per year smoking history and no major medical history, who had gone to the emergency department for sudden severe pain in his left flank.
