This is the news a lung oncologist I was talking to over the weekend was hoping to see:

Immune therapy drugs can transform lung cancer treatment, giving patients years of extra life, doctors reported Monday.
They found that pre-treating lung cancer patients with immune therapy drugs before they get surgery can help melt away the tumor and at the same time limit or even stop its spread.
And combinations of immunotherapy drugs have helped other lung cancer patients get off more toxic standard chemotherapy while also extending their lives.
The results are so startling that it is likely every lung cancer patient should be given the option of immunotherapy first, said Dr. Roy Herbst, a lung cancer specialist at Yale Cancer Center who was not involved in the studies.
