Lung Cancer Treatment Research

 

Looks like the standards are chemo (not very effective) and radiation.Iím going to research alternatives as well

 

Tarceva:†† EGF receptor inhibitor?

 

Celebrex:Lots of data that seem to support either as a preventative or to use in addition to chemo.

Selenium:Good data on this for prevention.Could it help for treatment?The original study is quite old.Need to look for newer data.200 mg is the daily dose.
