Abstract


There is an obvious need to diagnose lung cancer using novel noninvasive and sensitive biomarkers. In this regard, the aim of the present study was to evaluate and compare sputum matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP-2) in relation to serum MMP-2 of lung cancer patients and other nonmalignant lung diseases in order to establish a new diagnostic and prognostic biomarker with a valid noninvasive technique.
