Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide. Despite progress in treatment of lung cancer we experience unacceptable toxicities without a significant increase in overall survival (OS) and progression free survival (PFS). The goal of this study was to find out whether the metabolic profile derived from blood plasma can differentiate between subject groups who do and do not develop toxicities.
