Moss Report on Lung Cancer,
Non-Small Cell

Alternative & Conventional Lung Cancer, Non-Small Cell, Treatments (2019 Update)

Note: we have separate Moss Reports on the two major forms of lung cancer:

Small-Cell Lung Cancer

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (this page)

Please be sure you order the one specific to the type of lung cancer you are dealing with.

What’s New In Lung Cancer Treatment

The 2019 updated Moss Report on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer brings you a thorough and up-to-date discussion of the best results with surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, integrative, complementary and alternative treatments for lung cancer. But this is no dry medical text. This 500-page looseleaf book is written for patients in language that lay people can understand.

We also cover all aspects of lung cancer treatment, including such  complementary and alternative treatments as:

  • Cannabis
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Turmeric and Curcumin
  • Coconut oil
  • Medicinal mushrooms
  • Melatonin
  • Acupuncture

We discuss the best supplements to take and even give Dr. Moss’s favorite brands. 

We keep our finger on the pulse of modern research. For instance, in 2019 we report on these latest developments in NSCLC treatment:

  • Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors in NSCLC
  • The latest Durvalumab Survival Figures
  • The use of Tagrisso in EGFR-mutant, Advanced NSCLC
  • Alectinib (Alecensa)
  • Emergence of the “next generation” ALK Inhibitors, such as Brigatinib (Alunbrig)
  • Tecentriq® Plus Avastin
  • The viral therapy, Reolysin
  • Use of Keytruda in patients with Low PD-L1 Expression
  • Itraconozole + Pemetrexed

The 2019 updated Moss Reports on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer includes a discussion of how science is harnessing the immune system to fight these cancers. This includes very encouraging results with immune checkpoint inhibitors such as nivolumab (Opdivo). There is a discussion of which patients are likely to respond to this important new kind of treatment, and the role of two mutations in EGFR and ALK in making this decision. We also discuss the work of James P. Allison, PhD, winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize for his discovery of immune checkpoint inhibitors. Allison is proposing that these inhibitors be combined with anticancer viruses. But we show how this treatment is already being given at innovative European clinics.

Lung Cancer Treatment

Forty years ago, the treatment of lung cancer was among the simplest of all cancers. If the disease could be detected early the tumor could usually be surgically removed and the patient might therefore survive. The first article on the chemotherapy of NSCLC did not appear until 1976! The chances of surviving five years then stood at just 12 percent.

So much has changed! By 2016, there were 1,750 articles appearing per year on the chemotherapy of non-small cel lung cancer (NSCLC) – around five every calendar day. Before the 1980s, almost nothing was known about the molecular biology of lung cancer. The first article on did not appear until 1987, when British scientists found a receptor that “may be a suitable target for therapy”.

Over 1,000 articles later, this marker is now routinely detected in many cases, and has become a standard target for several FDA-approved drugs. As a result, the treatment of lung cancer has gone from one of the simplest to one of the most complicated of all cancer types.

The emergence of a whole new class of immune-based drugs has led to a degree of optimism about the treatment of lung cancer that few of us anticipated a few decades ago.

No patient with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) or their loved ones should be without this outstanding Moss Report.
