Özet

Objectives: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related deaths in worldwide. Despite recent advances in treatment options, patient survival has not improved substantially due to lack of commonly expressed molecular targets and effective targeted therapeutics. Thus, better understanding of the biology of lung cancer and identification of novel therapeutic targets are urgently needed for development of highly effective molecularly targeted therapies.
