Non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC), in particular adenocarcinoma, are often mixed with normal cells. Therefore, low sensitivity of direct sequencing used for K-Ras mutation analysis could be inadequate in some cases. Our study focused on the possibility to increase the detection of K-Ras mutations in cases of low tumour cellularity. Besides direct(More)

However, after an initial response, most patients will recur, particularly within the central nervous system. The present study reports the case of a 27-yr-old nonsmoking male presenting with a metastatic(More)
