Oncodrivers in Malignant Pleural Effusions Associated With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer: A Prospective Study.

Oncological treatment of patients with disseminated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is depending on the status of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1), anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), so called oncodrivers. These can be measured in pleural fluid, but the prevalence is uncertain. In a prospective study, …
