NCT01731548

  Purpose

We hypothesized that the local control for both arms were not statistically significant, when irradiation to the post-induction chemotherapy tumor volume is compared with irradiation to the pre-induction chemotherapy tumor volume.While elective nodal irradiation will be omitted for both arms.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: study arm

For patients who are randomized to study arm, (i.e. to irradiate the post-chemotherapy tumor extent) the clinical target volume-tumor (CTV-T) includes the post-chemotherapy gross tumor volume-tumor (GTV-T) with a margin of 0.8 cm.

Chemotherapy includes etoposide 100mg/m2 d1-d3 combine with cisplatin 80mg/m2 d1 at 21-day interval for 4 cycles.

Radiotherapy will be administered with cycle 3 chemotherapy(1.5 Gy twice daily to 45 Gy in 30 fractions over 3 weeks)

Radiation: hyperfractionated radiation therapy for both arms
1.5 Gy twice daily to 45 Gy in 30 fractions over 3 weeks for both arms
Active Comparator: control arm

For patients who are randomized to control arm, (i.e. to irradiate the pre-chemotherapy tumor extent) the clinical target volume-tumor (CTV-T) includes the pre-chemotherapy gross tumor volume-tumor (GTV-T) with a margin of 0.8 cm.

Chemotherapy includes etoposide 100mg/m2 d1-d3 combine with cisplatin 80mg/m2 d1 at 21-day interval for 4 cycles.

Radiotherapy will be administered with cycle 3 chemotherapy (1.5 Gy twice daily to 45 Gy in 30 fractions over 3 weeks).

Radiation: hyperfractionated radiation therapy for both arms
1.5 Gy twice daily to 45 Gy in 30 fractions over 3 weeks for both arms

  • Weight loss was less than 10% within 6 months before diagnosis.
  • Written informed consent was required from all patients.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients were ineligible if they had a history of other malignant diseases except for non-melanomatous skin cancer and carcinoma in situ of the cervix, or any contraindications for chemoradiotherapy, malignant pleural and/or pericardial effusion.
