Meta-analysis: Radiotherapy variants improve survival in non-metastatic lung cancer
Date:4/30/2010

best to deliver radiotherapy for lung cancer patients, Dr Le Pechoux said. "Interest in modified fractionation was uncertain before the meta-analysis, but the current results will lead to renewed interested in this research field."

"In the most recent meta-analysis evaluating the best way to combine radiotherapy and chemotherapy in NSCLC, the results showed that concomitant chemo-radiation (5-year survival rate of 15.1%) is superior to sequential chemo-radiation (5-year survival rate of 10.6%) and the best results shown in randomized trials in small-cell lung cancer limited disease show 5-year survival rates of 20-25%. Thus there is need for improvements of both radiotherapy and chemotherapy," Dr Le Pechoux said.
