The American Cancer Society and Stand Up To Cancer announce collaborative research effort
Date:1/29/2014

erall, among both smokers and non-smokers, the chance that a man will develop lung cancer in his lifetime is about 1 in 13; for a woman, the risk is about 1 in 16, although for smokers, the risk is much higher.

"There continues to be a high unmet medical need in patients with lung cancer, which is a difficult disease to treat," said Joseph Leveque, M.D., vice president, U.S. medical, oncology, Bristol-Myers Squibb. "Bristol-Myers Squibb is committed to improving patient outcomes in lung cancer and we are proud to support this collaborative approach to research with Stand Up to Cancer to find innovative ways to treat this disease."

The overarching collaboration also includes an advocacy component led by the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the Society's nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate, and SU2C (a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation). "ACS CAN is thrilled to bring its public policy expertise and nationwide network of advocacy volunteers to this collaboration to support increasing critical federal funding for lifesaving cancer research and prevention programs," said Christopher W. Hansen, president of ACS CAN.
