Reporting Groups
Treatment This is a non-randomized, single-arm, phase II study of vinorelbine and paclitaxel in older patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Vinorelbine (22.5 mg/m2) and paclitaxel (40 mg/m2) were given weekly for six weeks followed by a two-week break. Each patient received a maximum of two cycles (12 doses) of chemotherapy. All patients received standard premedication for nausea and hypersensitivity prophylaxis per individual institutional guidelines. Quality of life (QoL) was assessed at baseline, week 9, and week 17 using the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy lung cancer subscale instrument (FACT-L).
