A phase II tolerability study of cisplatin plus docetaxel as adjuvant chemotherapy for resected non-small cell lung cancer
Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung
The combination of cisplatin at 80 mg/m2 with docetaxel 35 mg/m2 weekly or 75 mg/m2 every 3 weeks is no better tolerated than older chemotherapy regimens. The most common reason to stop chemotherapy was intolerable fatigue. These results suggest that the most common dose-limiting toxicities are attributable to the cisplatin, given similar problems were encountered whether the docetaxel was delivered as a single dose every 3 weeks or as a lower weekly dose.
