  • Patients
  • Based on American Society of Clinical Oncology Guidelines for Systemic Therapy for Stage IV Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer , etoposide (in combination with platinum therapy) may be considered for stage IV non-small cell lung cancer patients with large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma. (drugs.com)
  • Etoposide binding ratio correlates directly with serum albumin in patients with cancer and in normal volunteers. (drugs.com)
  • The unbound fraction of etoposide significantly correlated with bilirubin in a population of cancer patients. (drugs.com)
  • overdose
  • Taking an etoposide overdose may lead to potentially serious side effects, such as bleeding, anemia, and infections. (emedtv.com)
