Abstract

Recently, a genome-wide association study (GWAS) has identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) which may influence the prognosis of early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in Caucasians. We attempted to replicate the impact of genetic variants identified in the GWAS for lung cancer survival in a Korean population.
