Brief Summary:
  1. Patients with confirmed advanced NSCLC and any response to 3-6 cycles of chemotherapy, were randomized to receive PCI (30 Gy/10fr) or no PCI.
  2. The primary endpoint was the cumulative incidence of symptomatic brain metastases (BM) .
  3. The study was sized to detect a hazard ratio of 0.37 with 80% power and 2-sided 5% significance (60 events, 206 patients).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Brain Metastases Radiation: Radiotherapy Phase 3

Detailed Description:
  1. Prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) significantly reduces the risk of brain metastases (BM) and improves survival in patients with extensive disease small cell lung cancer after a response to chemotherapy .
  2. PCI has also demonstrated to reduce or delay the incidence of CNS failure in non small cell lung cancer patients after primary therapy.
  3. But its impact on overall and disease free survival is uncertain.
