Prognostic significance of molecular genetic aberrations on chromosome segment 11p15.5 in non-small-cell lung cancer.

PURPOSE The assessment of prognosis and decisions on treatment for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are determined on the basis of disease stage and performance status. NSCLC frequently manifests loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at chromosome segment 11p15.5. Whether LOH at 11p15.5 is an independent prognostic variable has yet to be determined… CONTINUE READING
