Comment: The Practical Applications in Lung and Head & Neck Cancers meetings will cover the latest advances in the treatment of patients with lung and head & neck cancers. In lung cancer, recent developments include improved efficacy in the first-line setting with inhibitors of angiogenesis or EGFR signaling, as well as novel cytotoxic regimens. In head and neck cancer, new approaches to multimodality therapy, including induction chemotherapy and targeted agents, have yielded improved survival. Recent data also point to emerging subtypes of head and neck cancer. This series of meetings will discuss these important advances and their implications for the community oncologist.
