Authors: Silvia Rinaldi, Rossana Berardi


Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) represents approximately 85–90% of all lung cancers. Its incidence is still raising and it remains the leading cause of cancer related death, worldwide, in both sexes (1). Adenocarcinoma (ADC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) represent the major subtypes, even if their incidence is reversing.
