Lung Cancer

A History of Breakthroughs in Lung Cancer Care

UH Seidman Cancer Center remains at the forefront of treatment, screening and prevention of lung cancer. Our history of leadership in cancer research includes extensive lung cancer studies. For example, our clinical researchers discovered a mutation that predicted patient response to targeted therapy.

A University Hospitals physician co-chaired the largest national study used to prove the value of targeted therapy to treat lung cancer. It was the first lung cancer breakthrough in over a decade.

Our clinical researchers also discovered a promising, novel biomarker to predict the survival of patients with advanced lung cancer. Recently, UH physicians reported on a long-term study of lung cancer patients confirming the importance of ongoing surveillance.
