New drug could potentially treat lung cancer

An new experimental drug that has shown promise in the treatment of melanoma may potentially treat patients with a most common form of lung cancer, scientists say.

The drug has shown early potential as an effective treatment for non–small cell lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer death among men and women worldwide.

Dr Edward Garon, director of thoracic oncology at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), presented the preliminary results of a Phase 1B study of the new drug, called MK–3475.
