(CHEST 2000; 117:71S)

Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death for both men and women in the United States, and it is a growing worldwide problem, especially in developing countries. In the past, there were few good options for the early detection, prevention, or treatment of lung cancer. This led to considerable pessimism regarding the care of patients with the disease. In the recent past, however, there have been many advances in the biology, early detection, staging, prevention, and treatment of lung cancer that are bringing about a reassessment of the nihilistic attitude of physicians toward lung cancer patients. For the optimal care of lung cancer patients, these advances require a multimodality approach to detection, staging, prevention, and therapy. These advances are summarized in this supplement, based on the proceedings of the Multimodality Approach to Lung Cancer symposium, held in Vail, Colorado.
