High-Grade Acute Organ Toxicity as Positive Prognostic Factor in Primary Radio(chemo)therapy for Locally Advanced, Inoperable Head and Neck Cancer

Abstract

To test for a possible correlation between high-grade acute organ toxicity during primary radio(chemo)therapy and treatment outcome in patients with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). From 05/1994 to 01/2009, 216 HNSCC patients were treated with radio(chemo)therapy in primary approach. They received normofractionated (2 Gy… (More)
