Study compares differing treatment frequencies for one type of the disease

The impact of treating a certain lung cancer with once-a-day radiotherapy vs. twice-a-day is explained in this "The Informed Patient" podcast by radiation oncologist Jeffrey Bogart, MD, whose research on the topic was recently published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, so efforts to improve survival can make a huge impact. Bogart, a professor and chair of radiation oncology at the Upstate Cancer Center, compared the two treatment regimens for  patients with limited small cell lung cancer, meaning the cancer had not spread from the lungs.

“The Informed Patient” is a podcast that covers health, science and medicine, featuring experts from Central New York’s only academic medical center. Upstate Medical University has four colleges (Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions and Graduate Studies); a robust research enterprise; and an extensive clinical health care system that extends way beyond Syracuse.
