Molecular diagnostics and targeted therapies in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC): an update.

The understanding of genetic alterations that drive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is evolving. As many of these molecularly-defined subtypes are potentially actionable, new strategies in molecula...

Body mass index (BMI), BMI change, and overall survival in small cell and non-small cell lung cancer patients: a pooled analysis of the International Lung Cancer Consortium.

The relationships between morbid obesity, changes in body mass index (BMI) prior to cancer diagnosis, and lung cancer outcomes by histology (small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-SCLC (NSCLC)) have no...

Genetic mutations among Chinese patients with non-small cell lung cancer and targeted therapy.

To provide mutational analysis and targeted therapy for Chinese patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLCs).

Neoadjuvant Tyrosine Kinase Inhibition in Locally-advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer: Two Cases and a Brief Literature Review.

Despite their remarkable efficacy in metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), EGFR- and ALK-targeted therapies have not been shown to confer any survival benefit in stage III disease, even in su...

Neoadjuvant Crizotinib in Resectable Locally Advanced Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer with ALK-rearrangement: A Brief Report.

Locally advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the most heterogeneous condition with multidimensional treatments involved. Neoadjuvant therapy was commonly considered as an optimal mana...

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.

A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.

A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.
