AbstractChemotherapy for advanced NSCLC in good performance status has survival benefit, reduces tumour symptoms and can improve quality of life. Future challenges include defining the optimal chemotherapy and incorporating the newer agents to improve patients' outcome. In particular treatment of the elderly and patients with poorer performance status need to be developed with more attention being paid to relief of symptoms and minimising treatment toxicity.
