This publication reviews the most recent results of platinum/etoposide chemotherapy for patients with small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. The studies show novel ways of administering these combinations including standard regimens, weekly regimens, high dose regimens with growth factor support, and continuous oral therapy. It is shown that carboplatin can be substituted for cisplatin without loss of activity and with a reduction in toxicity. The studies also review the use of these combinations in patients with regional stage 111 non-small cell lung cancer where they provide an improved survival.
