Carbon-ion radiotherapy (CIRT) holds promise to treat inoperable locally-advanced non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), a disease poorly controlled by standard chemoradiotherapy using X-rays. Since CIRT is an extremely limited medical resource, selection of NSCLC patients likely to benefit from it is important; however, biological predictors of response to(More)
The EGF receptor (EGFR) contributes to tumor radioresistance, in part, through interactions with the catalytic subunit of DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PKc), a key enzyme in the nonhomologous end joining DNA repair pathway. We previously showed that EGFR-DNA-PKcs interactions are significantly compromised in the context of activating mutations in EGFR(More)
Although cytotoxic chemotherapy is essential in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)‑mutated non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), it is unclear which regimen is most effective. We retrospectively compared the efficacy of standard platinum‑based chemotherapy with that of combination chemotherapy using vinorelbine (VNR) plus dihydropyrimidine(More)
