As a follow-up to my last post, I provide a link to the teleconference on metformin and lung cancer chemoprophylaxis. This is exciting and interesting but very preliminary data but the discussion is led by the foremost researchers in this area. The first 20 or so minutes is an excellent panel discussion; one could skip the last 20 or so minutes of Q&A if pressed for time.
Another related and timely article is from the August 2010 CAP Today which discusses the new EarlyCDT-Lung assay from OncImmune which purports to be a screening test for lung cancer looking at cancer-associated autoantibodies and the possible role of high-resolution CT (hrCT) scanning for early detection.
For American readers, have a safe and restful Labor Day weekend!
