No other cancer is as deadly as cancer of the lung, which kills more than the combined fatalities from all other cancers. Medical experts say the best way to avoid cancer of the lung is to either never smoke cigarettes or stop smoking them.
Individuals who insist on smoking may survive by detecting lung cancer early with a CT scan testing, which has proven to be more effective than a standard chest x-ray.

Personal Money Store? Money blog? This is what I see when I run the cursor over your link, any reason?
Edit - Or am I being needlessly suspicious?

Hi, Lizzy,
Heres a search for open NSCLC trials, you can refine it more by selecting the Refine Search tab and searching also by location.

Or you can make your own search from scratch from the main page.

Best of luck,

Lizzy,
There are two trials that I know of which are being conducted at Johns Hopkins and are stage dependent. (One trial is phase 1 and the second is phase 2). I am in the phase 2 trial. I understand that the trials will be deployed to several other facilities across the USA in the near future.
You may also want to look under the National Cancer Institute web site, under clinical trials, if you have not already.

Wishing you the best.

There currently is a phase 2 clinical study being done with imetelstat as a maintenance drug for nsc lung cancer. My wife will be starting it shortly. Currently it is being done at 20 facilities and will enroll 96 patients.

On the far left side of this screen, under the second tab (cancer.org), the fourth menu item down is Clinical Trials Finder. I have not checked that out, but it seems like it might be another good source for you. In addition, a magazine called CURE, affiliated with ACS if I am not mistaken, has an online version at curetoday.com where they also list clinical trials.

Best wishes.

And please ignore the person who cited smoking as the be-all, end-all of getting lung cancer. It is fairly well accepted that basically any cancer can be a product of the any combination of genetics, behavior, and/or environment. There is a guy on this very site who has been smoking for 60 years and doesn't have cancer (he was a caregiver). I know of many who have cancer who NEVER touched a cigarette.

Please ignore the notion that NSCLC means death (I am an NSCLC survivor and have been NED (no evidence of disease) for almost three years now, having just had my latest six month CT scan). It IS true that lung cancer kills more people than any other and, thus, should receive more resources than it does, but it is NOT the deadliest. There are several others in contention for that title.

Take care,

Joe
