English term or phrase: line of therapy
dans une description de différents protocoles thérapeutiques contre le cancer.
Doit-on traduire par ligne thérapeutique?

type de traitement
Explanation:
type de traitement is the the right term when we talk about using a certain class of drugs for th etreatment of a specific cancer ie. hormonal therapy vs gene therapy or anthracycline.

However if your are referring to a first or second line of therapy then should use: traitement de première ou deuxième intention.

So it really depends on the context

ligne thérapeutique


Explanation:
oui, il s'agit bien d'une ligne thérapeutique. J'en ai trouvé quelques exemples...

En première ligne thérapeutique, l’ET 743 permet d’obtenir 18% de réponses partielles,

l'acide rétinoique n'a pas été testé en première ligne thérapeutique

etc...

agree  Youri PIEDBOIS: plus spécifiquement, on parle de ligne de traitement: ex. "en première ligne +/- de chimiothérapie"

lignée thérapeutique


Explanation:
Je ne fais qu'une proposition supplémentaire, car à mon avis, je garderais ligne thérapeutique aussi, l'ayant rencontré de même lors d'autres descriptions de protocole. La variante lignée est également possible mais moins fréquente.
Bon courage.
