Cisplatin and Tirapazamine in Subjects with Advanced Previously Untreated Non-Small-Cell Lung Tumours. A phase III trial that assessed the efficacy and safety of tirapazamine plus cisplatin for treating non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC)

Tirapazamine enhances the activity of cisplatin in patients with advanced NSCLC and confirms that hypoxia is an exploitable therapeutic target in human malignancies
