Abstract

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a leading cause of cancer-related mortality and prognosis remains poor despite the availability of numerous therapies. Integration of drug screening and sequencing in PDX models may allow for improved understanding of mechanisms of resistance (de novo and acquired), identification of biomarkers, and optimization of therapeutic strategies for NSCLC patients. In this study, we evaluated the response of NSCLC PDX models to multiple therapies and correlated responses to known clinical outcomes and molecular characteristics.
