Should repeat biopsies be standard of care in progressing lung cancer? - 1251407

For those who might be interested, I just posted a brief video explaining why I feel that repeat biopsies shouldn't be considered as a standard of care for patients with progressing NSCLC, particularly with regard to those patients with a "driver mutation" and acquired resistance to a targeted therapy. Here's the post:

I'd be very interested in people's opinions, here and/or as a comment on the post itself.
