Brief Summary:
The primary aim of the study is to identify a predictive molecular signature for response to chemotherapy, according to WHO criteria, in patients with non-small cell lung cancer by studying the transcriptome (miRNAs and mRNAs) and the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) by using high throughput techniques.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1
After obtaining the biopsy, patients will be treated by standard chemotherapy (the regimen has to be in agreement with the ELCWP guidelines, available on the website
Drug: Chemotherapy
Standard cisplatin-based chemotherapy in agreement with the ELCWP guidelines (available on the website

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Response rate [ Time Frame: response will be assessed every 3 cycles of chemotherapy according to WHO criteria ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Survival [ Time Frame: Survival will be dated from the date of treatment ]
  2. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Period between the date of treatment and the date of first progression or death ]
  3. Duration of response [ Time Frame: period between the day of treatment and the date of first progression in patients with an objective response ]
