Non-Platinum Chemotherapy as Effective for SCLC

Non-Platinum Chemotherapy as Effective for SCLC Chemotherapy regimens that do not contain platinum agents (Platinol and Paraplatin) appear to be just as effective as regimens that do contain platinum agents in the treatment of small cell lung cancer. These results were recently published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) accounts for approximately one-quarter of all lung cancers.
