Animation - Targeted Therapy in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
This animation provides an overview of targeted therapy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Targeted therapy is a cancer treatment directed towards specific mutations that drive cancer to grow and spread. Watch to learn about targeted therapy for common gene mutations such as EGFR, ALK, ROS1, and BRAF. You may qualify for targeted therapy based on the results of biomarker testing. This testing allows doctors to prescribe treatment that is tailored to your individual cancer. Be sure to ask your doctor about biomarker testing and targeted therapy. Targeted therapy offers hope and can make an important difference in your health outcomes.
