Science Matters: VA Cooperative Studies Program Seeks To Tackle Lung Cancer Head-On

88.9 WCVE’s Phil Liles recently spoke with Dr. Drew Moghanaki about a new lung cancer trial program being implemented by the Veteran’s Administration.

The VA Cooperative Studies Progream will be providing $25 million for the trial focused on stereotactic radiation versus surgery.

Dr. Moghanaki says this phase 3 trial is part of the VA’s mission to address lung cancer head-on. The largest study of this kind in the world, Dr. Moghanaki says it could change lung cancer treatment practices globally.
