With the abundant number of articles published in lung cancer, it has become very difficult to stay updated. After a search through variety of medical journal for articles published between March and June 2010, we selected the studies considered to have the greatest relevance for oncologists involved in the treatment of lung cancer. The nine selected studies covered a broad range of topics including possible hormonal role in the development of lung adenocarcinoma, lung cancer in never smokers, stereotactic radiotherapy for early-stage lung cancer, prognostic role of pleural lavage cytology, neoadjuvant chemotherapy for operable lung cancer, maintenance erlotinib, use of erlotinib after gefitinib, comparison of the two epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors, and risk of central nervous system relapse in patients treated with epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
