BACKGROUND The role of cell-cycle protein cyclin D1 in lung cancer remains controversial. To clarify its impact on survival in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), we performed a meta-analysis on the currently available medial literature to quantitatively assess its role on survival of NSCLC according to cyclin D1 status. METHOD Published studies that investigated the association between cyclin D1 expression and NSCLC survival were identified. Meta-analysis was performed by using a DerSimonian… CONTINUE READING
