Patient Q&A Section

Please Note: These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

What are common treatments for carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

Add answer

Carcinoma, non-small-cell lung is a highly aggressive cancer, and its overall prognosis is poor. Due to these factors, it is necessary to assess the current status of treatment for patients with carcinoma, non-small-cell lung with regard to PFS. This is a crucial point for developing an effective treatment strategy. In this paper, standard therapeutic options for carcinoma, non-small-cell lung and strategies to improve treatment for patients with carcinoma, non-small-cell lung was reviewed, and the treatment options for carcinoma, non-small-cell lung were organized according to PFS.

Unverified Answer

How many people get carcinoma, non-small-cell lung a year in the United States?

Add answer

Carcinoma, non-small-cell lung make up 5.8% of Americans. Carcinoma, non-small-cell lung comprise 1.9% of all malignancies reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States in 2000. The most common cancer in 2000 was small cell carcinoma, malignant neuroblastoma of the lung, (14.7% of all reported malignancies); the second most common was squamous cell carcinoma, non-small cell lung (11.5% of all reported malignancies) and adenoid cystic carcinoma of the salivary gland, (8.2% of all reported malignancies).

Unverified Answer

What is carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

Add answer

Carcinoma, non-small-cell lung, first appeared in the third millennium, about 4000 years later than what was previously hypothesized. A combination of radiometric and genetic evidence strongly supports a relationship between this tumour and smoking.

Unverified Answer

Can carcinoma, non-small-cell lung be cured?

Add answer

It is very difficult to predict whether a carcinoma, NSCLC can be cured, or not. However, it is possible to cure it if it is detected early and treated.

Unverified Answer

What are the signs of carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

Add answer

Patients with cancer of the lung with a palpable mass and persistent or worsening symptoms of cough should undergo CT scan. Imaging is particularly helpful in detecting unsuspected metastases or unsuspected pneumonic disease.

Unverified Answer

What causes carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

Add answer

The cause of carcinoma is still unknown; however, it almost certainly is multifactorial. Tobacco smoking appears to play a causative role, as does occupational asbestos exposure.

Unverified Answer

What is tvb-2640?

Add answer

TVB-2640 is a novel synthetic compound. Its chemical structure and mode of action are similar to cyclophosphamide. Despite the structural similarity, this compound causes very different anticancer activity.

Unverified Answer

Is tvb-2640 typically used in combination with any other treatments?

Add answer

A combination treatment with a low-dose combination of TVB-2640 with a second-line treatment was effective and safe in this study. In view of the limited number of patients and their inclusion criteria, the results need to be confirmed in a larger study.

Unverified Answer

Has tvb-2640 proven to be more effective than a placebo?

Add answer

To date, this medication has not been proven to be more effective than a placebo. Moreover, for patients who already received a bronchodilator, the side-effects of this medication were more problematic than their adverse drug reactions in general.

Unverified Answer

Does tvb-2640 improve quality of life for those with carcinoma, non-small-cell lung?

Add answer

In people with carcinoma, non-small-cell lung, in whom the cancer is growing and invading surrounding tissues, the TV-2640 combination improved both quality of life and survival by slowing the tumor growth rate and reducing symptoms of cough and dyspnea.

Unverified Answer

What are the latest developments in tvb-2640 for therapeutic use?

Add answer

TVB2640 was efficacious and safe as a single agent and combination therapy in early-phase clinical trials. Further studies, preferably randomized phase III trials, are warranted to assess its utility in the treatment-resistant setting. Clin Cancer Res; 1-10. ©2016 AACR.

Unverified Answer

How serious can carcinoma, non-small-cell lung be?

Add answer

The overall five-year survival for stage III-IV NSCLC is about 35%; however, survival is significantly higher for stage III-IV NSCLC patients with adenocarcinoma (57%). The significant survival difference is probably due to adenocarcinoma patients' being younger, healthier, and having better staging (stage I-II patients having lower survival). The data suggest that adenocarcinoma patients should have aggressive and intensive treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, and/or targeted therapy.
