Journal Review in Thoracic Surgery: Adjuvant Therapy in Lung Adenocarcinoma


November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and what better way is there to spend your time than getting to know the recent advances in adjuvant therapy for early-stage lung adenocarcinoma? 

Learning Objectives

–        Review work-up and treatment of lung adenocarcinoma
–        Review evidence behind Osimertinib as an adjuvant therapy in EGFR mutation positive disease
–        Review recent advances in gene expression profiles for targeted application of adjuvant chemotherapy
–        Discuss future directions for research
–        Discuss additional advancements in diagnosis, monitoring, and immunotherapy
