Effectiveness of PD-L1 Tests Compared for Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer

In a recent study, clinical researchers compared performance of the 4 available assays for the tumor-promoting protein PD-L1 as a biomarker for assessing non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). They found that one assay failed to result in comparable levels of PD-L1, while the three other assays resulted in comparable levels. More...
