Cardiotoxicity and Radiation Therapy - Considerations for Lung Cancer
TOGA Podcast
by Professor Shalini Vinod, Dr Vicky Chin, Dr James Otton
1y ago
For lung cancer patients, the benefits of treatment and potential for cure must always be balanced with risk. Cardiotoxicity is considered a short and long term risk from treatment for lung cancer, but this varies between patients. New radiotherapy techniques, lower doses of radiotherapy and supporting cardiovascular treatments can minimise the risk of cardiotoxicity. Monitoring for cardiac complications is becoming an important aspect of survivorship care, and may require collaboration between medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, GPs and cardiologists.  Professor Shalini Vinod, Th ..read more

Access to Molecular Diagnostics and Treatments Across ANZ: The Past, Present, Future
TOGA Podcast
by Laird Cameron, Renuka Chittajallu, Nick Pavlakis
2y ago
The identification of molecular subtypes of non-squamous NSCLC continues to grow, spurring the development of targeted therapies designed to target these mutations and prevent the growth of the cancer. People with advanced NSCLC that possess one of these ‘actionable’ mutations and can access targeted treatments can live for many years with very manageable side effects. However, the technology to identify these actionable mutations in a single test and the targeted treatments are not yet accessible to all people with advanced NSCLC. In this TOGA podcast, we explore access to molecular diagnosti ..read more
