PREVIOUS RESEARCH PROJECTS

1. National and International Lung Cancer Trials I have been actively involved in recruitment of lung cancer patients in our practice into clinical trials including the British Thoracic Society Big Lung Trial and The Medical Research Council LU21 study as well as the London Lung Group Study 10-comparing Gemcitabine/Carboplatin with Cisplatin/Etoposide in small cell lung cancer and study 11-comparing Gemcitabine /Carboplatin with MIC in non small lung cancer. In addition, I have been involved in a number of pharmaceutical studies, including a double blind placebo controlled randomised control trial investigating the addition of a matrix metallo-proteinase inhibitor to standard chemotherapy in non-small cell lung cancer (Pfitzer) and an RCT evaluating the use of erythropoetin in the prevention and treatment of anaemia in patients undergoing chemotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer.
