  1. Describe the standard of care for patients with early-stage NSCLC, and discuss recent trials incorporating adjuvant and/or neoadjuvant chemotherapy into treatment regimens for patients eligible for surgery.
  2. Evaluate current clinical trial data addressing the safety and efficacy of various chemoradiotherapeutic regimens in the treatment of patients with locally advanced NSCLC.
  3. Compare treatment options for elderly patients with NSCLC, taking into consideration patient comorbidities, performance status, and adverse responses to systemic therapy.
  4. Assess the results from recent studies aimed at identifying markers and patient characteristics that are predictive of response to specific EGFR inhibitors.
  5. Summarize alternative or additional treatment approaches, such as maintenance therapy and PCI, which may potentially lead to improved clinical outcomes for patients with NSCLC.
  6. Evaluate the results of recent studies investigating therapy options for the treatment of SCLC.
