Phase III Comparison of Thoracic Radiotherapy Regimens in Patients with Limited Small Cell Lung Cancer also Receiving Cisplatin or Carboplatin and Etoposide
Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy,
such as etoposide, carboplatin and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of
tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet
known which radiation therapy regimen is more effective when given together with chemotherapy
in treating patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer. This randomized phase III
trial is comparing different chest radiation therapy regimens to see how well they work in
treating patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer.
