SESSION TITLE: Lung Cancer Screening in the Real World

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 04:30 PM - 05:30 PM

PURPOSE: Prior studies have shown that African-American patients in the Medicare population with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have lower cancer-specific survival (CSS) than do Caucasian patients, and this difference has been attributed to lower rates of curative surgery in African-Americans. Asians have been reported to have better CSS than Caucasians, but these studies have examined primarily colon, breast, and prostate cancer patients. Because no direct comparisons between Asians and Caucasians exist in prospective lung cancer clinical trials, we aimed to describe care patterns in Asian-American patients with early-stage NSCLC and to identify any differences in CSS as part of the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST).
