About Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

NSCLC is the most common type of lung cancer and represents 85 to 90 percent of all lung cancers.(1) NSCLC has five-tier staging, starting at 0 and rising to the severity of stage IV.(2) NSCLC can spread through the lymphatic system, penetrating the chest lining, ribs, and the nerves and blood vessels that lead to the arm. The liver, bones and brain are potential targets if the cancerous cells enter the bloodstream.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Cancer Report, lung cancer is the world's most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women. More than 1 million people die from lung cancer each year.(3)

NSCLC is defined as a group of histologies, that is, tumor types differentiated by cellular structure. The most common NSCLC histology types are squamous (or epidermoid) carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and large cell carcinoma. These histologies are often classified together because, to date, approaches to diagnosis, staging, prognosis, and treatment have been similar.(4)
