Radiation Therapy Regimens in Treating Patients With Limited-Stage Small Cell Lung
Cancer Receiving Cisplatin and Etoposide
Which chest radiation therapy regimen works best to treat small cell lung cancer?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: Highland Hospital
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
tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is
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
trial is comparing different chest radiation therapy regimens to see how well they
treating patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer.
