Pemetrexed, a novel multi-targeted agent established for the treatment of mesothelioma, has been under investigation for other malignancies, and in recent years particularly for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In the present trial we investigated pemetrexed in combination with paclitaxel as front-line treatment in advanced or metastatic NSCLC. Our(More)
Our purpose was to determine the efficacy of irinotecan plus paclitaxel administered on day 1, repeated every 2 weeks, in untreated patients with advanced or metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In total, 56 patients with inoperable or metastatic stage III and IV NSCLC with a histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis were enrolled. None(More)
The present study involves non-small cell lung (NSCLC) cancer patients with brain metastases, who were treated with radiation therapy, and our aim was to determine response rate and survival. A total of 167 patients were recruited, 155 (125 male, 30 female) of whom were evaluable. Performance status was 0-2 and histology or cytology included 66 (42.58%)(More)
Purpose: Based on previous experience, we combined topotecan with paclitaxel (weekly administration) in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Our primary objective was to determine the response rate and survival and our secondary objective, the safety of the regimen. Methods: From October 2003, until March 2005, 45 patients all with(More)
7127 Background: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients of advanced stage are still of a need for new chemotherapy schedules to improve response rate and overall survival. There are new agents that have been established effectively in other tumors but very little applied in NSCLC. In the last category belong camptothecins. METHODS The objective of(More)
