Abstract Lung cancer mortality has not changed much around the world in recent times and remains the commonest cause of cancer deaths, accounting for an estimated 1.5 million deaths in 2010 (1). Unlike many other solid cancers, the mortality from lung cancer continues to rise and much more work is needed to address the public health issue. Concerning too is the burden of disease in developing nations where smoking rates are still high, for instance exemplified by the predicted increases in lung cancers in China (2).
