Should repeat biopsies be the standard of care after progression of a lung cancer?


One of the current controversies in the field of lung cancer is whether we should be doing biopsies routinely when a patient develops progression of their disease, particularly in the setting of acquired resistance to a molecularly targeted therapy.  There are some academic oncologists who favor this approach, but I think there's a very good reason why this isn't and shouldn't be the current standard of care.
