Comparing different types of chemotherapy for treatment of older people with advanced lung cancer | Cochrane

Worldwide, lung cancer is responsible for most cases of cancer-related death among individuals of both sexes. For adult patients with advanced disease, therapy regimens based on the combination of cisplatin or carboplatin with a different agent are considered the standard of care.

As a consequence, older patients are often treated with less intense chemotherapy regimens.
