A revolution in lung cancer treatment is happening at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center &ndash; James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC &ndash; James). Our research is proving that lung cancer is not solely defined by location and stage, but rather the individual molecules and genes that drive each patient&rsquo;s unique cancer. Simply put, there is no routine lung cancer. To deliver the most effective ways to treat each unique lung cancer, world-renowned researchers and oncologists at the OSUCCC &ndash; James use their collective knowledge and expertise to understand each cancer at a genetic level, pinpoint what makes it grow and deliver treatments that target one particular lung cancer...yours. Next-generation genomic screening allows researchers and oncologists to rapidly and cost-effectively characterize cancer-related genes in ways that weren&rsquo;t possible 10 years ago. &ldquo;Genomic technology provides us with tools to better understand a patient&rsquo;s cancer,&rdquo; says Sameek Roychowdhury, MD, PhD, a medical oncologist and specialist in cancer genomics at the OSUCCC &ndash; James. Genomic-based medicine used in the OSUCCC &ndash; James lung cancer clinic enables oncologists to better diagnose a patient&rsquo;s particular cancer; better determine the patient&rsquo;s prognosis, or the risk that the cancer will return; and identify the best therapy or clinical trial for a patient based on the genetic changes in his or her tumor. &ldquo;New lung-cancer patients at the OSUCCC &ndash; James are currently tested for mutations in 12 genes to help guide their therapy,&rdquo; says lung-cancer specialist Gregory Otterson, MD. &ldquo;Genomics in cancer care helps us identify the right treatment for the right patient.&rdquo; By developing and delivering the most advanced and targeted treatments, we are leading the way to faster responses, fewer side effects, better outcomes and more hope. At the OSUCCC &ndash; James we go beyond the routine to prevent, detect, treat and cure your lung cancer. To learn more, call The James Line at 800-293-5066 or visit cancer.osu.edu.
