Table 1 The classification of lung cancer

From: An immunohistochemical study of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK5) expression in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC): a possible prognostic biomarker

  Cancer subtype of histology
Lung cancer SCLC   
NSCLC Squamous cell carcinomas  
  Adenosquamous carcinomas  
  Large cell carcinoma  
  Undifferentiated carcinomas  
  Adenocarcinoma Acinar adenocarcinoma
   Papillary adenocarcinomas
   Bronchioloalveolar cell carcinomas
   Mucinous carcinomas
  1. This table was to classify the subtypes of lung cancer. Lung cancer is consisted of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). NSCLC was composed of squamous cell carcinomas, adenosquamous carcinomas, large cell carcinoma, undifferentiated carcinomas, and adenocarcinoma. Furthermore, adenocarcinoma was composed of acinar adenocarcinoma, papillary adenocarcinomas, bronchioloalveolar cell carcinomas, and mucinous carcinomas
