Boehringer Ingelheim to Sponsor the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation's Efforts to Promote Genetic Biomarker Testing
Date:11/7/2013

m Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "It's about a more detailed diagnosis as early as possible to help physicians more immediately match each patient with the most appropriate course of treatment."

The sponsorship from BI to promote genetic biomarker testing in advanced NSCLC also complements ALCF's Patient 360 Community Hospital Program that aims to create a new standard of care for lung cancer patients in the community hospital setting. One of the requirements of the ALCF's Patient 360 Community Hospital Program is administering genetic biomarker testing for all patients in the Program.

While the understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer has improved, there is additional work to be done. In 2013 alone, more than 228,000 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S., and the American Cancer Society estimates nearly 160,000 Americans will die of the disease.1

The facts about lung cancer cannot continue to go unnoticed:

  • Lung cancer takes more lives than breast, prostate and colon cancers combined and it accounts for 27 percent of all cancer deaths.1 It is the second leading cause of all deaths in the U.S. 2
  • Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in every ethnic group2 and since 1987 has killed more women every year than breast cancer.3
  • The five-year survival rate for lung cancer has changed little in nearly 40 years – from 12 percent in 1970 to 17 percent today.4
  • NSCLC is the most common form of lung cancer, accounting for about 85 percent of all diagnoses.5 

This staggering loss of life has gone unnoticed too long, and the ALCF is on a mission to change the statistics.  The ALCF funds clinical research that may lead to potentially life-saving discoveries and treatments and provides critical support services and educational programs to empowe
