Join OncoLink for Breathing New Life into Lung Cancer Treatment, Future Trends in Lung Cancer Treatment: New Therapeutic Approaches and the Role of Patient Advocacy Media Summit & Webcast which was held at the 10th World Congress on Lung Cancer (WCLC) in Vancouver, Canada, August 11, 2003.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) more than 6 million people worldwide die every year as a result of cancer, the second most prevalent cause of death in the developing world. Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide among men and women accounting for 1.1 million deaths each year, yet there are very few patient advocacy groups in the world specifically dedicated to this devastating disease. International experts will convene at the 10th World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC) in Vancouver, Canada, from 10-14 August to discuss new approaches in providing patients with more therapeutic options.
