Background: Lung cancer is one of the most aggressive tumours with a very low overall five year survival rate and a high recurrence rate even in lower stages. Genetic aberrations are able to detect imbalances with potential impact on prognostic and therapeutic targets. Methods: Surgical resected [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
