Julia K. Rotow, MD, outlines some major areas where advances are needed in the management of patients with early-stage non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). First, she anticipates that immunotherapies and targeted therapies available in the metastatic setting will become available as personalized therapy for patients in the early-stage setting.

Additionally, Dr Rotow looks at tools such as cell-free DNA technology that are starting to show some ability to better assess treatment response and disease progression in patients with early-stage NSCLC. She looks to a future where more dynamic options are available in the neoadjuvant setting for patients with early-stage NSCLC to better tailor therapy and improve long-term outcomes.
