BACKGROUND Recent progress in the field of anticancer drug discovery has created many options for improving the survival of patients with cancer. However, more effective diagnostic tools indicating early therapeutic efficacy or disease progression are still needed to improve the management of patients with inoperable cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Plasma nucleosome levels were quantified in 134 patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer before the first cycle of chemotherapy. It was also… CONTINUE READING
