Brief Summary:
The GECP, in its commitment to improve the treatment and prognosis of patients with lung cancer and other thoracic tumors, has marked the individualization of treatment according to the expression of markers predictive of response to chemotherapeutic agents and molecular inhibitors of cell proliferation as one of its primary objectives. This could significantly improve the prognosis of patients with lung cancer, and will lead to a radical change in routine clinical practice. The aim of the register is to explore all data available of all patients treated because of thoracic tumours.

Thoracic Tumors

Detailed Description:

In Europe, patients with lung cancer have a poor prognosis, and there has been only limited improvement between 1999 and 2007. Potential advantages of the centralization of care and the discussion of treatment strategies in multidisciplinary teams, as suggested in other studies,13 require further research. However, the priorities should be to prevent lung cancer by implementing anti-smoking policies and controlling asbestos exposure throughout Europe, such as was recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2008.14 Other priorities are to reduce levels of residential radon in risk areas, and early diagnosis to improve the results of surgery, which is still the main curative treatment.

The variability in the diagnostic process, treatment and advocacy, as well as the anticipated increase in associated mortality in Spain in coming years, has stimulated the creation of an epidemiological, observational, multicenter study of cases of lung cancer and other thoracic tumors diagnosed and treated by medical personnel, including both thoracic surgeons and medical oncologists. Data from this study will be collected retrospectively and prospectively, so as to enable an extensive study of the epidemiological and therapeutic factors related to the disease.
