BACKGROUND The density of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in lung cancer is variable and may have an impact on disease course. We reviewed the histology of lobectomy specimens from patients with pathologic stage IA-IB non-small-cell lung cancer to determine the impact of TILs on recurrence and survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two hundred nineteen lobectomies performed between 2002 and 2005 for stage IA-IB non-small-cell lung cancer were reviewed. Patients were stratified according to… CONTINUE READING
