This study is randomized phase III trial designed to assess whether (preoperative) neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery plus adjuvant chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin (experimental treatment) improves 3-year disease-free survival, compared to surgery plus adjuvant chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin (standard treatment) in stage IB, IIA, IIB and T3N1 non-small cell lung cancer

Condition Intervention Phase
Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung Drug: gemcitabine, cisplatin Phase 3

Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Randomized Phase III Trial of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Followed by Surgery Plus Adjuvant Chemotherapy Versus Surgery Plus Adjuvant Chemotherapy in Stage IB, IIA, IIB and T3N1 Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (ICON)
