In a previous study we found that tumor responses as assessed by CT scan and fiberoptic bronchoscopy are sometimes discordant. We hypothesize that the response-survival relationship might vary according to the method of tumor response assessment. In a multivariate analysis of survival using the landmark method, we evaluated the prognostic significance of tumor response assessed by CT scan or fiberoptic bronchoscopy together with bronchial tumor location and histology of bronchial biopsies at… CONTINUE READING
