 lung cancer clinical trial for NSCLC at UCLA Lung Cancer Clinical Trial

A new and innovative lung cancer clinical trial is being conducted at UCLA. This trial tests the use of an aromatase inhibitor in conjunction with the standard lung cancer chemotherapy to find better treatments and hopefully cures for lung cancer. This trial is based upon the concept that estrogen serves as the basic fuel for lung cancer. The trial is for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).  Watch a short video from lung cancer researcher, Dr. Richard Pietras.
