Abstract

We thank J. N. McCutcheon, X. Zhao, and G. Giaccone for their insightful commentary on our article regarding genomic studies for large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) of the lung (1). We would like to take this opportunity to comment on some of the points that they raised and to discuss our data reported in the original manuscript further (2).
