A single EBUS-TBNA procedure can support a large panel of immunohistochemical stains, specific diagnostic subtyping, and multiple gene analyses in the majority of non-small cell lung cancer cases.

Abstract

Targeted therapies for pulmonary adenocarcinoma (ACA) necessitate specific subtyping and molecular testing of non-small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC). However, endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) has decreased the tissue available for these assessments. While EBUS-TBNA specimens have previously been reported to… (More)
