Abstract

EGFR and K-ras mutation status was determined from tumor DNA extracted from cytological samples from non-small cell lung cancer patients, with results comparable with those from biopsy samples. Clinical outcomes of patients harboring mutations and their response to tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy are also discussed
