Lung Cancer Chemo and Radiation Synergy Enhances Overall Survival-

people with lung cancer that had already spread to other parts of the body showed that radiation therapy added to chemo dramatically slowed the time until these cancers progressed further

According to the American Cancer Society, the average 5-year survival rate for stage 3 lung cancer (LC) is about 14%. The study linked and excerpted below cites stage 3 LC patients who undergo chemo and radiation combined experiencing a five-year survival rate of 32%.

 

My name is David Emerson. I am both a cancer survivor and cancer coach. I have lived with an incurable blood cancer with a five-year survival rate of 48% since 1994. I have lived in complete remission from this incurable cancer by living an anti-cancer lifestyle through evidence-based, non-conventional therapies such as nutrition, supplementation, detoxification and more.

While I’m not advocating that cancer patients ignore conventional therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation, what I am advocating is that stage 3 LC patients consider both conventional (FDA approved) and non-conventional therapies.

Please watch the free webinar linked on the right of this page to learn more. If you would like to ask me a question please scroll down the page, post a question and I will reply to you ASAP.

Thank you,

David Emerson

Radiation and Chemotherapy Together Boost Lung Cancer Survival

“Combining radiation therapy with chemotherapy has substantially extended survival for many people with LC, two new studies report…

About 32 percent of non-small cell lung cancer patients who received chemoradiation therapy were still alive five years following treatment, a survival rate double that of previous estimates, according to results from a long-term clinical trial…

Further, a small second clinical trial of people with LC that had already spread to other parts of the body showed that radiation therapy added to chemo dramatically slowed the time until these cancers progressed further…

The two studies show that radiation therapy and chemotherapy work well together, and that radiation also might help patients who are undergoing newer forms of cancer treatment like targeted therapy and immunotherapy…
