Details and patient eligibility

About

Vinorelbine is currently the standard treatment for elderly patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Docetaxel has also shown promising results against elderly patients in phase II studies. We conducted a randomized phase III trial to evaluate whether docetaxel provided better overall survival than vinorelbine in elderly patients with advanced NSCLC.
