The trial is a phase II study of daily Tarceva combined with definitive radiotherapy in inoperable locally advanced non small cell lung cancer (stage IIB-IIIB). The objective of the phase II trial is to examine Tarceva concomitant with curatively intended irradiation 66 Gy (2 Gy x 33 F, 5 F per week).
