PURPOSE Combined modality therapy is standard of care for patients with unresectable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), however, insufficient data exist regarding prognostic factors in this disease setting. METHODS To evaluate the treatment results and prognostic variables, 85 NSCLC patients treated from October 2005 to April 2008 were randomly assigned to one of the two treatment arms. In the first arm (sequential arm), 45 patients received sequential chemotherapy with 4… CONTINUE READING
