The above article says:

Patients who have been diagnosed with NSCLC and are to undergo chemotherapy with a platinum compound may wish to speak with their physician regarding their individual risks and benefits of participation in a clinical trial further evaluating these genes or other "markers" that may affect treatment outcomes

Since this is not now routinely done but based on the article the markers make a HUGE difference, I wonderi f getting these gene tests are expensive to do and what is involved. Anyone know? John?
