Re: [MOL] Non small Cell Lung Cancer



Dear Lil,

Thank you for this message. It is true that some of these new drugs are
being used in treatment of Ovarian Cancer as well. Topotecan was first
used for Ovarian then came along Taxotere and now Gemcitibine in
combination with Cisplatin. Thank you for this info.

God Bless
