Advanced EGFR Mutation-Positive Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer: Case Report, Literature Review, and Treatment Recommendations.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality. Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) comprises up to 90% of all lung cancers. Conventional treatment for advanced NSCLC consists of chemotherapy and...

Research Progress of Matrix Metalloproteinase 12 in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer.

Lung cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors in the world wide. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for approximately 80% of lung cancers, its pathogenesis have not been elucidated....

The advent of multiple molecular targets in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has brought new treatments, but also new logistic and technical considerations, to the clinician. The small size...

The analysis of ALK gene rearrangement by fluorescence in situ hybridization in non-small cell lung cancer patients.

ALK gene rearrangement is observed in a small subset (3-7%) of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. The efficacy of crizotinib was shown in lung cancer patients harbouring ALK rearrangement. N...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
