Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, and Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for over 85% of all cases. Some NSCLC patients may benefit from targeted drug therapy based on specific genetic alterations in their tumors. Detection of ROS1 rearrangements in patients with NSCLC suggests eligibility for treatment with the tyrosine kinase inhibitor crizotinib.
