ILCN In Focus
Resources for Reading & Understanding Biomarker Test Results
Biomarker test results are crucial for lung cancer patients to understand, but they are difficult to read due to their complexity. The Advanced Practitioner Society for Hematology and Oncology, the Association of Community Cancer Centers, the Association for Molecular Pathology, and LUNGevity Foundation created basic and comprehensive education for ALL non-small cell lung cancer patients to understand their results. Materials are available in English and Spanish. Learn more.
