The authors reported on results of Phase III clinical trials conducted to determine whether or not treatment with pemetrexed AND cisplatin results in greater survival time than treatment with cisplatin alone. The study examined 456 patients and involved medical facilities in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States.
