y also shows the benefits of physicians and insurers working together to provide data and results. We look forward to continuing to work with US Oncology to further research ways we can collaborate to improve the quality of care for Americans battling cancer."

US Oncology, Inc. supports the nation's foremost cancer treatment and research network in association with more than 1,300 physicians who work in 493 communities across the United States. The company created Level I Pathways, a physician-led initiative that ensures the consistent delivery of value-driven, evidence-based treatment, to drive quality care for patients diagnosed with the most common cancers. The underlying goal of Level I Pathways is to delineate treatment options that maximize survival benefit, minimize toxicities, and provide cost-savings advantages that benefit both the patient and the payer.

Lung cancer is the 2nd most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States, following skin cancer, and is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. NSCLC makes up approximately 80 percent of lung cancer cases in the United States and no single regimen has emerged as the superior treatment choice for patients with advanced cases. There is limited evidence regarding the cost-effectiveness of newer treatment strategies. The economic cost of lung cancer is high, estimated at an annual cost of $9 billion.
