BACKGROUND: Since the improvement of chemotherapy with safe molecules is needed for a better efficacy without supplementary toxicity, we investigated the feasibility and tolerability of the combination of docetaxel and curcumin, a polyphenolic derivative extracted from Curcuma long a root.
Lilly argued that pemetrexed fills an unmet need because the only other therapy approved for second-line use, docetaxel (Taxotere), is increasingly being used to treat lung cancer patients initially, making it less likely to be used as second-line therapy, said Lilly consultant Frances Shepherd of the University of Toronto.
Docetaxel - manufactured by Aventis under the name Taxotere - was tested on two groups of women, those with one to three affected lymph nodes and those with four or more.
