In October 2013, our sister Journal Translational Lung Cancer Research is going to launch a special issue on Management of Early Stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. This special issue is guest-edited by Dr. Heather Wakelee, from Stanford Cancer Institute, Stanford University, USA. The scope of the special issue will be to provide cutting-edge literature on related fields and a platform for key experts to present their latest research results.

Apart from updates in surgical techniques, this special issue on Management of Early Stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer will present reviews on the importance of adequate lymph node sampling and on known prognostic biomarkers. We also have input on management for non-surgical patients, IR techniques, interventional pulmonology strategies and input from radiation oncologists. More interesting and exciting contents are coming up. Hope you will enjoy it.
