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
