Loss of Fhit is frequent in stage I non-small cell lung cancer and in the lungs of chronic smokers.


Abnormalities of FHIT, a candidate tumor suppressor gene at 3p14.2, have been found frequently in multiple tumor types including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). To investigate whether FHIT inactivation plays a role in early lung tumorigenesis, Fhit levels were determined by immunohistochemistry in tumors from 87 patients with stage I NSCLC and in 372… (More)
