Abstract

Maintenance therapy is a new treatment strategy for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The two methods used in maintenance therapy are switch maintenance and continuation maintenance. In the last few years, several randomized phase III studies have reported survival benefit with maintenance therapy. Maintenance therapy represents a useful strategy for improving patient outcomes in advanced NSCLC.
