Causal effects of time-dependent treatments in older patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
(PLoS One, 2015)
BACKGROUND: Treatment selection for elderly patients with lung cancer must balance the benefits of curative/life-prolonging therapy and the risks of increased mortality due to comorbidities. Lung cancer trials generally ...
