With lung cancer being the leading cause of cancer death, among both men and women, research on the treatment of lung cancer is vastly important.

In 2011, there were an estimated 402,326 people living with lung and bronchus cancer in the United States, according to the NCI.

About 224,210 new cases of lung cancer with occur in the United States in 2014, according to the American Cancer Society, and an estimated 159,260 deaths from lung cancer.
