BTOG 2024 | Exploring ILD drugs in lung cancer: research gaps and opportunities

Matthew Hatton, MBChB, MSc, FRCP, FRCR, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK, highlights a gap in research regarding the potential benefits of drugs used in interstitial lung disease (ILD) treatment for lung cancer patients. While some drugs like nintedanib show anticancer properties and may reduce respiratory toxicities, systematic trials exploring their efficacy in cancer outcomes are lacking. Prof. Hatton advocates for addressing this need by conducting trials to evaluate whether these treatments can be optimized to minimize toxicity and enhance patient acceptability. This interview took place at the BTOG 2024 congress in Belfast, UK.
