In recent years, non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) treatment has developed rapidly. Biological treatment preparations have improved survival in NSCLC, particularly in non-operable locally advanced and metastatic NSCLC. Substances that target the processes inside tumor cells are particularly useful in adenocarcinomas. At the time of diagnosis, it is necessary to determine the morphological diagnosis as accurately as possible and, if indicated, to perform genetic testing. In our paper we give an overview of the development and possibilities of biological treatment.
