Background: Lung cancer has the leading mortality rate among all cancers and it is the second most common cause of death following cardiovascular diseases. The aim of the study was determining deleted and/or amplified regions of 64 different loci previously associated with lung cancer, by using Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification (MLPA).
