Role of zoledronic acid in the setting of bone metastases from non-small-cell lung cancer
Clin Lung Cancer (2005) 6:314-6, 2005 Mar..
Bone metastases are major sequelae of non-small-cell lung cancer and are associated with poor survival, skeletal-related events (SREs), and economic burden. In recent phase III trials, zoledronic acid has demonstrated a potential to prevent or delay SREs, although this has not yet translated into a survival benefit. Zoledronic acid is the first and only bisphosphonate with proven efficacy in the treatment of bone metastases associated with a broad range of tumors, including lung cancer. We report herein a case study that highlights the clinical benefit of zoledronic acid in a patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.
