- Commentary: Old Data Provide New Insights Into the Therapeutic Benefit of Adjuvant Chemotherapy in Non-Small Cell Lung CancerSeminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery
- PreviewThe pivotal Lung Adjuvant Cisplatin Evaluation (LACE) meta-analysis demonstrated a clear, albeit modest, survival benefit associated with the administration of adjuvant chemotherapy among patients with resected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).1 Despite publication of these data almost 15 years ago, adjuvant systemic therapy remains grossly underutilized.2 Although the reasons for this discordance are complex and likely multifactorial, it is at least to some degree due to the small magnitude of the identified overall survival benefit.
