[MOL] Taxotere for lung cancer

Good Day All,

Hope the following information will be of some use.

RPR's Taxotere Approved For Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

WESTPORT, Dec 24 (Reuters Health) - On Thursday, the US Food and

Drug Administration expanded approval of Taxotere to include

treatment of cisplatin-resistant non-small cell lung cancer.

Taxotere, manufactured by Rhone-Poulenc Rorer of Collegeville,

Pennsylvania, was first approved in May 1996 for the treatment of

advanced breast cancer.  Only 10 days ago, the FDA Oncologic

Drugs Advisory Committee recommended that approval be expanded to

included non-small cell lung cancer that does not respond to

cisplatin therapy.



God Bless All,
