Abstract

Chemotherapy and radiotherapy, separately or sequentially, are established protocols in the management of lung malignancy. However, as early as 1999 a study in Osaka, Japan concluded that the concurrent approach yielded a significantly increased response rate and enhanced median survival duration when compared with the sequential approach [as applied to selected patients with unresectable stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)].
