METHODS We evaluated the usefulness of radioimmunoguided surgery (RIGS) in the staging of primitive non small cell lung cancer. Intraoperatively, this technique can define the lymph nodes involvement and thus, the radicality of the resection. In the first stage of our study, we looked for the epitope TAG 72 in 45 patients with primary non small cell… CONTINUE READING
