|Official title||Phase II Study of Bevacizumab and Erlotinib in Elderly Patients With Advanced Non-Small Lung Cancer|
|Principal investigator||Hossein Borghaei, DO|
|Description||There is no definite evidence of a superior therapy for advanced non-small cell lung cancer in elderly patients. With the exception of one known study, single agent erlotinib has not been studied exclusively in the elderly and the combination of erlotinib and bevacizumab has never been studied exclusively in the treatment naive elderly. This is an important population that needs less toxic therapies.|
