EML4-ALK Fusion Gene Assessment Using Metastatic Lymph Node Samples Obtained by Endobronchial Ultrasound-Guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration
Purpose: Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) fusion genes represent novel oncogenes for non–small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Several ALK inhibitors have been developed, and are now being evaluated inExpand
