We don't do that, the most that I'm aware of is there are health insurers who give you discounts if you don't smoke. They give you a break on your healthcare. We don't fire people. If they're overweight, if they have emphysema, if they have cancer, lung cancer, from smoking, we don't fire people. Who can do the job? But nurses are getting fired. Healthcare workers are getting fired and healthcare workers have some of the greatest vaccine skepticism of all professions. I don't know why.

Care grew with others who've gone through trials to help guide that process. I think is invaluable. Aaron do you and your colleagues provide any virtual consultations for individuals who want a second opinion. Yeah absolutely we have a e console or virtual will be have a variety of offers summer physician physician where we do a what one of those operators is called eib review another. It's called a console of where we get. The material sent to us review them and then we tell that oncologists that yes. We have a trial. Send the asian or hate me agree with everything. You're doing No need for this patient travel. And then we're also offering that to patients at through zoom where We need a lot of materials to be sent us to review and provide An actual consultation. But i've been doing this a book domestically and willfully for patients who've been requesting that it's wonderful aaron a little bit earlier you mentioned that sometimes it's difficult to participate in clinical trials because of distance etc and it male. We've become increasingly concerned about providing equitable care to individuals such that Everyone can receive excellent healthcare.

"Of these opportunities are available at major academic centers. Can you give us an example erin. As some ongoing clinical trials that male clinic might offer and how to individuals find out about them yet so a one trial. We you still have all been various indications but it just led to fda approval So in lung cancer. We've known that patients can have fusions in gene called rat where the ret gene binds to another gene that it shouldn't and that results in a mutant protein that drives these Now cancer cells to grow and spread throughout the by we used to borrow some drugs off label that are calling in thyroid group used but they didn't work that well three or four years ago we brought in these much more potent retina hitters and started looking for fusions and all of our patients so we could on almost twenty patients on trial that led to approval of There's now two drugs that were approved on. We have both of those studies open but a we put many patients on just showing that these pills that you take once a day for one of the drugs or twice a day for the other. Almost always dramatically shrinks these tumors and has durable responses where we don't just shrink temporarily but we maintain that but for many many months or in some cases for years so that trial still open for patients without lung cancer since yet year. Proved it for long. But that just speaks to what we've done looking for a biomarker where there's not an fda approved indication assigning patients to treatment based on that identification and many of those patients who put on steady years ago are still on that study still benefiting from this drug. And now we're looking for patients with other types of tumors with this mutation to try to offer this drug to them that's a fantastic example how to patients find you so I get emails every day in phone calls from colleagues clinical trials. There's clinical trials dot gov if you're told if you're apologised or surgeon physician tells you eight..

"Where these most patients with metastatic disease goal for treatment of most people are very aware the biomarkers that need to be tested That align with the current fda approvals I think there's a lag with the incorporation of testing for all these biomarkers. But we're seeing more and more of that is being done appropriately so Other times of when this cancer presents at earlier stages You might need to meet a surgeon or a radiation oncologist Might not be as great to see a medical. Oncologist like myself and Various centers have different offerings of whether someone has whether center has a drastic oncologist specializing in the reception or not. So it's important to figure out what what expertise is available locally and it's not than than to go with where it is available often individuals wonder if a second opinion might be helpful lung. Cancer is really common. But is this one of those areas. we've discussed some before. Where i've been told that experience really matters. How often your surgeon does. This surgery makes a big difference. It's not incredibly common. Is that true with lung cancer. Should people consider a second opinion. If they're wondering yeah. I i'm biased. So i have to stay at the beginning. But i think it's important to know that you're seeing a if you have earlier stages of disease in you need a surgeon to make sure that they're specialized drastic surgery and on collage surgical principles for for recession that Being in medical oncology where. I think a second opinions very valuable. It is the clinical trials we have to offer a weeds radically changed practice over the last ten years and it has been through offering developing and offering clinical trials. That have changed that practice. So i would say we're many years ahead of the curve so to speak by looking for biomarkers that are not being done commonly and offering treatments that target. Those markers that we find. So that's where i think. A second opinions useful because it is primarily the academic centers where those trouser being offered although there is a major effort to make trials available closer to home so people don't have to travel so far but the fact of matter is most of these opportunities are available at major academic centers. Can you give us an example erin. As some ongoing clinical trials.

There's test for radon now. And there's ways to mitigate if there's high exposures of beyond that of the other risk factors are difficult to control thinking about the smoking.

Does it matter how much the person smokes and to stopping. Smoking actually help. I've heard individuals. Say well why bother. I've been smoking this long now. Yeah so that. That's a common thing that people believe but smoking cessation does reduce the chance of developing lung cancer. That's been proven. We know that smoking cessations critical to reduce the risk of lung cancer in smokers lung. Cancer is not the only cancer that can be caused by tobacco exposure.

Maybe in college or the military and then stopped of what once they graduated are are are left their military service so most of our patients in clinic are not active smokers or have a very light tobacco history or none at all.

"Are confirmed one another's findings that but when you see these graphs on how. Cancer mortality overall is a reducing overtime over the last many years a major reduction in cancer related mortality is due to the advances made in lung cancer lung. Cancer is one of the most common cancers it's the most common cause of cancer related mortality worldwide and the improvements in lung cancer screening targeted therapies. Immuno therapies have all improved a lung cancer mortality and because lung cancer so common cancer mortality overall. Oh that is wonderful to hear. That's great Tell me a little bit about what individuals can do to prevent lung cancer. If they're concerned yes. Since the major risks factory no is a tobacco exposure. If you are smoking try to find ways to quit. We have resources to help with that. It's very difficult to do. Nicotine's very addictive but we try to find ways in individualize ways that work for people to try to reduce or eliminate the tobacco use. If you're in a house where there's someone smoking. I i would encourage them to try to quit and work with them knowing. It's very difficult thing to do. But again their resources to try to help people with this there are Radon mitigation things.

The screenings recommended for people who are higher risk based on their age. Smoking history. okay. That's what i was going to ask if it was primarily for smokers rather than the population so unfortunately it is hard like i mentioned eric patients where we don't know the risk factors that lead to all types of lung cancer so we don't know how to them yet in our lung cancer screening of ct imaging so the screening. We have which has been proven to be beneficial is for those who are actively smoking or have a history of smoking and are up fifty five and older so supposing that an individual has a concern as some concerning sinus symptoms or they have a screening test that might be concerning. How do you diagnos along cancer. He has so. We like tissue to make the solid diagnosis. Like i said many other cancers can go to the lawns also various types of infections can look like a lung cancer in the so we need to put a needle into one part of the body or another to figure that out our pulmonary colleagues tried to do a less invasive approach may sound days of but we go down the airway and they use ultrasound to guide where they place that needle to get the most accurate a tissue if it's gone elsewhere in the body than we adjust our approach based on. Where else scar on you You mentioned that there are multiple types of lung cancer. So i imagine this might vary. But how do you treat it once. It is a diagnosed yet.

"Often presents just like other things can present Many of my patients had been diagnosed as having pneumonia. They've received many rounds of antibiotics. That were not beneficial and then they eventually make our way to us win Amass that was thought to be pneumonia on chest. X ray never improved and then we get a biopsy to show. It's actually a cancer rather than an infection so it can look like things like pneumonias so some of those symptoms that go with it are losing weight When you're sick with an infection you may not eat as well. Same thing with cancer. So there's weight loss there can be cost The those are the more common things we see a when it gets more. Severe people may actually cop bloods rather than just slim Many of our patients have their lung. Cancer diagnosed incidentally they go to the er with belly pain and they have the scan that catches the bottom of the log. And there's an najah that's down there. Then they make our way to our colleagues in in pulmonary medicine so those are the two most common ways that that they present to us. A the more severe presentations are win lung. Cancer spreads either to the brain or into the ribs or another bone where when his french to the bone. It can be very painful. And we get imaging help sort that out or when spreads to the brain and present like a stroke where people lose function based on what part of the brain that goes to so can be advanced when it's diagnosed because of what you said probably mimics other diseases. Yep unfortunately when tumors grow within our lungs. It's not something that our bodies can sense or feel so we miss it at its earliest stages unless reviewing streaming so for half the patients. Roughly are more Lung cancer presents when it is already metastatic do we do screening for lung cancer. Absolutely we have data of that are about ten years old. Now that have led to incorporation of lung cancer screening within guidelines with many types of guidelines in various associations. We have a we. Show that doing lodo. Ct screenings of the chest is superior compared to doing x. rays for detecting lung cancer and that was shown to improve lung cancer mortality and all cause mortality because we also found other things going on on the imaging results so there are some people who are concerned about the false positives that come from doing this testing but we have proven that this saves lives by reducing lung cancer mortality in all cosmetology a right now.

"We have difficulties identifying what that actual risk factor is so. That's a big gap in film or trying to sort through and try to get knowledge to sort out. What was that actual cause for many of these patients where we don't know at this time aaron so many of the cancers that we talk about like i'm thinking of breast cancer. Some types of colon cancer have a familial risk or they tend to run in families or genetic or hereditary in some way. is that true of lung cancers. It is less common in lung so it gets more nuanced where in breast cancer and ovarian we know about rack. One bracket to me know of other genes for colon. stomach cancers for lung cancers. It's not as clear cut per se. there's been associations where when parents smoke their kids when they grow up may start smoking and other. There's certain Underlying genetic risk factors. But there's not a clear single gene that is as strong as associated with brackman bracket to breast cancer that restraining patients for right now. They are rare exceptions but in general. It's not of being an inherited cancer. Aaron something you just said made me curious about the risks of secondhand smoke. My husband grew up in home or his mother smoked copiously and unfortunately died of related cancer and is the risk for someone who has been exposed to that as a child the equivalent to having smoked or do we know that so we know that any exposure to tobacco will increase your risk but It's lower for those who don't smoke than those who actually did the smoking and it goes down with time from the end of your last exposure. Oh that's interesting. What are the signs and symptoms of lung cancer that our listeners should be aware us. This is the problem because lung cancer.

Future-Proofing the Digital Health Ecosystem

"Health is becoming front and center and for very good reasons so talk to us a little bit about virtual health. How are you guys adding value to the ecosystem. I mean just to complete the story of how. I got the jump from aging in place to healthcare as you mentioned in the introduction i mean i have a family member asked away for late stage diagnosis and that was my first exposure to the healthcare industry. I found it extremely frustrating experience as many people. Do and the one thing when the you know the individual ultimately ended up passing away. And i think the one thing that i really had difficulty with was the first one was high risk. There were forty year. Smoker ended up having lung cancer. You would think that if you're proactive in healthcare you would suggest maybe a just a basic x ray lung x ray right and if you've been able to discover this early you know that person still beer which is obviously the most important thing but i also have spent we also have saved the Health systems and the amount of time spent the waiting rooms and dealing with chemo. And the amount of money and resources were taxed from from a system that's over and then having the insurance companies spending millions of dollars for end of life care when it again. If they had been proactive. It wouldn't have had to spend that money right so for me. It was just a very simple concept of if all of our incentives are aligned. And we're all lying to find conditions early especially in high risk populations in. Why aren't we being proactive. And white we all work together. So that was my my impetus to start virtual health inspiration which was basically the technology that we're using for aging place it also could be utilized for any type of high risk ovulation. Obviously the elderly in a part of apple also people who are underprivileged underserved and using data to essentially detect those high risk individuals and intervene at the proper moment to save healthcare system. Money and time.

Its presence across the globe when it's outside it just kind of dissipates into the air and when it's in your house it gets trapped inside. How does it end up in homes in the first place. It comes from the ground often through the foundation whether it's cracks in the foundation or newer foundations. It just it just comes up out of the ground. We'll get into the details of this in just a second. But what does it do to somebody Living a house over you know decades or a life span With high levels of radon. I think it depends But but the general consensus is. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in canada. it gets in your lungs it. It messes with your dna and If you're unlucky it can turn an lung cancer which is of course the deadliest form of cancer. So that's the main thing It it levels. And and the length of time all play into it lifestyle but there's estimates that for an increase of one hundred. Becquerels per meter cubed which is the unit they measure the in It can increase your your risk of lung cancer by sixteen percent. wow how did this story start For you guys.

"Hi, Dan. How are you? Well, thanks for having me Bill. Tell us about now. This is an annual report that zits come out. So tell us about what the report looks at every year like what is it trying to accomplish and illustrate Yeah, a great question. Well, this is actually the third annual state of lung cancer report from the American Lung Association. In really our main goal is to examine the tool of lung cancer and what lung cancer that told us throughout the nation and certainly outlining steps that all of our state's conducive to better protect its residents. For the first time this year. We're really excited to explore the lung cancer burden among racial and ethnic groups at a national and state level. So the report actually found that while most Americans are surviving the disease nationally, people of color facing poor health outcomes. So while we didn't Find any substantial lung cancer health disparities here in Rhode Island. There's certainly a lot more we can do in that space. Well. The report looks at the toll of lung cancer here in Rhode Island. So let's talk a little bit about some some of the key findings and it looks like Rhode Island. Outpaces the country a little bit in terms of lung cancer detection and survival, too, right? Yeah, for sure, you know, And unfortunately, we know that lung cancer is still the nation's leading cause of cancer deaths. It's actually estimated that 921 Island residents will be diagnosed with this disease. In 2020 alone, so you know with that said the 2020 State of Lung Cancer report from the American Lung Association found that while Rhode Island was raped as a top 10 state and five out of six of our categories, the rate of new lung cancer cases in the state was actually a lot higher than average. So kind of some interesting Um you know pieces. There s O. Some of the highlights that all showcase in Rhode Island. Their survival rate is 25.9% showing a five year improvement of 16%. Actually earning us a third place ranking at a 47 states who reported that survival data? Yes. Oh, doing really well, they're obviously more more work to be done. Want to see that number higher? But the report also found that the state earned top 10 rankings for early diagnosis. So 25.7 25.7% of those getting diagnosed or doing so early and in a moment, I'll talk about why that's so important. And then we had, um, group great rate 28.2% of folks being diagnosed having surgery is a first course of treatment. On Ben. Some numbers that are concerning that we want to do some doom or with the number of people who are receiving no treatment is about 11%. And then even though we did we ranked really high across states across the country. Those who are eligible to receive a lung cancer screening were six out of the nation, which is really great. But still only 10.5% of those eligible actually received a lung cancer screening. Here in Rhode Island to really Yeah. To what do we attribute that that that sounds like a fairly low number for for something that is such a deadly I mean, as you mentioned, it's lung cancer is the leading cause of death in the country. Yet that's a pretty low high risk people receiving screenings. Only 10.5% of those It is really low and you know in what we do know is that most unfortunate. Most cases are diagnosed at a later stage after the disease has spread. S so we know that screening is such a huge part of making that happen. So I think part of that solution there is. We certainly need to raise more awareness about this test. It's actually been available for the last five years. It's been available since 2015. So in the grand scheme of things still relatively new, but we do have a really incredible resource at the lung Association. So if you go to our website at long, gotta work and type in saved by the scan. We have some really incredible resource Is that help you find out if you're eligible to receive a scan? What's the You know what you know, you need to know about the importance of receiving a scan and then most importantly, finding where you can do that closest to you, and we have some really incredible medical partners. Doing these lifesaving scans every day here in Rhode Island, and I'm sure that's very important. Like any cancer. Early detection is is so important. If you don't in lung cancer, especially you can't live without your lungs. On and, um You know, if you don't detect it until you're at stage three, then it's a lot harder than trying to give at the early stages of for sure. I mean, you know, And as you know, we say at the Lung association, if you can't breathe, nothing else matters And we know that lung cancer is more likely to be curable. The tumor could be surgically removed, and that's Um much more likely to be an option if the diagnosis is made early and often times that's because of this pregnant of screening. What does the report tell us about causes related to lung cancer and risk factors? You know the folks Is smoking. Still the big issue. For sure. Yeah, No, that's a great question. Smoking certainly still a leading a leading cause there. Unfortunately, know that anybody can get lung cancer s so you know, Basically, we know that lung cancer occurs when cells in the lung you tater change, and there's a lot of different factors that can lead to that mutation. And oftentimes is boiled down to when we breathe in dangerous toxic substances, And certainly one of those a smoking we know. Smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer still in it causes about 90% of lung cancer cases nationwide. So we know that the smoke that comes out of tobacco, you know, certainly There's a lot of chemicals and they're known to cause lung cancer. So we know if your smoker the single best thing we can do for our lung health is to quit. We also know that secondhand smoke is is, um, also puts us at risk for lung cancer. So helping our loved ones quit..
