mitzu Posted July 10, 2006 Share Posted July 10, 2006 I just wanted to vent. I find more and more that the initial treatment for sclc is "cisplatin + etoposide", for everyone diagnosed, extensive disease or not. This has been the treatment of choice for more than 20 years!!! After this treatment fails, they try anything and everything to try to stop the disease progression. Almost nothing works. And that's for the last 20 years!!! Cancer research is so advanced these days, they're finding new solutions for lots of cancers, for some even cures. How come sclc is still being treated with the same chemo for more than 20 years and there is so little research being done? Any input?
