Jan M. Rothman, MD, Medical Oncologist/Hematologist and Director of the Multidisciplinary Thoracic Cancer Clinic at the Regional Cancer Center in Erie, is co-author of an article recently presented at the World Conference on Lung Cancer in Denver, CO. This article has been rated in the top 3 studies in lung cancer this year and the largest national study on adjuvant treatment for lung cancer ever done. Titled, Randomized Phase III Trial of Adjuvant Chemotherapy with or without Bevacizumab in Resected Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC), the results of this study are pivotal and will transform the treatment of lung cancer.

The article will also be published early next year in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the official journal of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. Through the clinical research activities at the Regional Cancer Center a number of local patients were participants in this important clinical trial.
