Therapeutic management of lung cancer is mainly based on a dichotomic distinction between small cell (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), tumour stage and patient performance status. However, crossing the re- cent data emerging from molecular studies of gene expression profiling, from the new 2004-WHO histopathological clas- sification of lung tumours as well as from clinical trials with newl targeted therapies against EGFR (gefit- inib/erlotinib/cetuximab), it seems that a better… CONTINUE READING
