Thierry M. Jahan, MD, Alan B. Glassberg, MD, Patricia Cornett, MD, Daphne Haas-Kogan, MD, Peter Anastassiou, MD, Sabrina Selim, MD and David Jablons, MD
Non Small Cell Lung cancer accounts for 80 percent of all lung cancer cases. There has been modest improvement in the survival rate over the past two decades. We lack a satisfactory, widely applicable, screening test that could increase our ability to detect lung cancer at an early stage, when it has the best chance of being cured and the fact that lung cancer is a biologically aggressive cancer.
