This study seeks to help researchers and clinicians better understand why an increasing number of young people are developing lung cancer. Specifically, we are looking to study the environmental and childhood exposures, and other risk factors for lung cancer in persons under age 40.
This study seeks to help researchers and clinicians to better understand this kind of cancer and to develop new future lung cancer treatments. Specifically, we are looking for genetic changes in the ALK gene that could help to understand why a cancer has developed drug resistance.
The Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute (ALCMI), a patient-founded not-for-profit global research consortium, and researchers from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are launching a novel nationwide […]
The Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute (ALCMI), Champions Oncology and EGFR Resisters today announced the launch of a new study to create a novel bank of patient derived xenograft (PDX) models to help researchers better understand why patients living with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) positive lung cancer develop resistance to treatment over time, or […]

Global collaboration among data scientists, engineers, developers, coders, radiologists and physicians to end the world’s deadliest cancer. The Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute (ALCMI), Champions Oncology (NASDAQ: CSBR) and the ROS1ders announce the commencement of a global study to gain a deeper understanding of ROS1-positive cancer. The study is developing patient-derived xenografts (PDX) models for […]
Medical advancements, over the past year, have been game changing for lung cancer patients. In 1971, President Richard Nixon declared war on cancer, and now, we finally have a war on lung cancer. In 2015, the FDA approved 7 new treatments for lung cancer patients, and 5 of these approvals came over a 2-month period.
The preliminary results showed that 76 percent of study subjects under 40 had druggable mutations.
Two Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute research studies funded in part by the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation chosen for presentation at the May/June 2015 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting
According to a recent study in the Annals of Oncology, lung cancer fatalities are set to overtake breast cancer deaths among European women for the first time this year. It is predicted lung cancer deaths for women in Europe will reach 14.24 per 100,000 of the population in 2015.
