Abstract

The management of advanced NSCLC remains a daunting challenge. However, new tools are available for treating this malignancy and continued progress is likely. The future is bright with a myriad of opportunities to exploit our ever-expanding knowledge of tumor biology. What is perhaps most needed, however, is development of new methods to prevent children and young adults from ever taking up the use of tobacco. In addition, we need new techniques to assist those who are already addicted to escape from tobacco's death grip. Sadly, most users of tobacco still fail to recognize the dangers of their habit. This needs to change!
