Cancer therapies vary in their effectiveness and in most instances, standard treatment regimens are unsuccessful in a majority of patients — it has been estimated that overall objective response rates to cancer therapies is only 25%. And for some cancers, it may be even lower.
For example, in a retrospective study, the likelihood of response was discouragingly low:
A retrospective analysis of 43 patients with advanced NSCLC who had received 3rd- or 4th-line chemotherapy after two prior regimens that included platinum and docetaxel given concurrently or sequentially.
NCCN = National Comprehensive Cancer Network; NSCLC = non-small-cell lung cancer.
