TRACERx Lung: intratumor heterogeneity and clinical outcomes

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide, with a five-year relative survival rate of 4% in the metastatic setting. In this issue, three reports from the TRACERx (TRAcking Cancer Evolution through therapy (Rx)) lung study provide insights into tumor evolution and intratumor heterogeneity that may facilitate the development of biomarkers and improve therapeutic outcomes for patients.
