Mortality from NSCLC largely results from metastases in the regional lymph nodes, liver, adrenal gland, contralateral lungs, brain, and bone marrow. Cellular processes involved in the migration and metastasis of carcinoma cells share many similarities with the leukocyte trafficking that occurs during inflammatory processes, which is largely regulated by chemokines.
