teriw Posted November 19, 2006 Share Posted November 19, 2006 I'm wondering if anyone can shed some insight on something I recently read. In a book I received from the Lung Cancer Alliance ("101 Questions and Answers about Lung Cancer" updatd 2006), it says that for extensive sclc, the standard front-line treatment has been carboplatin or cisplatin with etoposide. But that recently, there is thought that cisplatin with irinotecan might be better. The book does say that those results are somewhat preliminary. Has anyone had this new treatment or learned anything about it? My hubby is about to start his second cycle of carboplatin/etoposide tomorrow. I'm still in that "is he really getting the best there is" place, and seeking any information I can get to question the docs about. Thanks for listening, Teri Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
