Genetic Testing Increases Survival in Lung Cancer

Genetic Testing Increases Survival in Lung Cancer | Lung Cancer | Scoop.it

Lung cancer patients who undergo genetic testing to guide personalize treatment survive longer on average than those who do not. A study analyzing outcomes in thousands of lung cancer cases found that patients who received genetic testing survived an average of 31.6 months, compared with 15.1 for untested patients. Fifty-five percent of tested patients had mutations that could potentially be treated with targeted therapies. Notably, the genetic profiles of lung tumors did not cluster according to traditional lung cancer subtypes (eg, adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, small cell lung cancer, etc.), and mutations associated with one subtype were sometimes also detected in other subtypes. Genetic testing is therefore likely to be valuable for all lung cancer patients, regardless of subtype.

Lung cancer remains the number one cause of cancer death in the United States, and in the world, among both men and women. The majority of people with lung cancer are either smokers or have a history of smoking, but 15-20% of people affected by the disease in the United States have never smoked. Half the people diagnosed each year with lung cancer have metastatic disease at diagnosis, which is generally considered incurable.

To help with lung cancer diagnosis and treatment a new technology, known as next generation “multiplex” gene sequencing, is now available and in use. It is a small computer chip which analyses small samples of the patient’s DNA from lung biopsies and tests them for 50 different genetic mutations. The results of the test help doctors quickly decide which medicines will be most effective for which patients by targeting the unique genetic features present in the patient’s cancer cells.

Lung cancer is one of the commonest cancers seen in developed countries and its incidence in India is on the rise. It is reported to be the fifth most common cancer in India. Indian patients with lung cancer are a decade younger than those in developed countries. Smoking is the major risk factor and therefore incidence of lung cancer can be lowered dramatically by not smoking.
