The diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer have evolved into the era of precision medicine. Liquid biopsy, a minimally invasive approach, has emerged as a promising practice in genetic profiling and monitoring of lung cancer. Translating liquid biopsy from bench to bedside has encountered various challenges, including technique selection, protocol standardisation, data analysis and cost management. Regarding these challenges, the 2016 Chinese Lung Cancer Summit expert panel organised a trilateral forum involving oncologists, clinicians, clinical researchers, and industrial expertise on the 13th Chinese Lung Cancer Summit to formally discuss these controversies. Six consensuses were reached to guide the use of liquid biopsy and perform precision medicine in both clinic and research.
