I have stage 4 NSCLC adenocarcinoma with bone metastasis. I started carboplatin Alimta Avastin chemo treatment and wondering if this triplet is effectively treating bone metastasis as well….. I am also receiving zoledronic acid every three weeks , but it does treat bone mets.
There are very limited publications related to effectiveness of standard chemo on bone metastasis. I’ve found that targeted drugs such Erlotinib and gifatinib are very effective in treating bone metastasis.
