Medical oncologist Dr. Frank Fossella at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has been treating patients with lung cancer and researching the disease for almost 30 years. His experience is invaluable.
He has served as the principal investigator for more than 50 clinical trials, most of which were aimed at finding a better, more effective way to treat patients with lung cancer — his specialty.
Fossella graduated from the nearby Baylor College of Medicine after receiving his undergraduate degree from the Cornell University College of Arts and Sciences in New York. He did both his internal medicine residency and medical oncology fellowship also at Baylor.
He is currently working on a phase III trial to determine if the chemotherapy combination of pemetrexed and carboplatin is more effective than etoposide and carboplatin for patients with extensive stage small cell lung cancer.
