Prophylactic Cranial Irradiation (PCI) Versus no PCI in Non Small Cell Lung Cancer After a Response to Chemotherapy (PCI)

This study has been terminated.
(this trial enroll extremely slow and No funding support)

Yi-Long Wu, Chinese Society of Lung Cancer Identifier:
First received: September 2, 2008
Last updated: March 2, 2017
Last verified: March 2017
  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).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary endpoint is the cumulative incidence of symptomatic brain metastases (BM) . [ Time Frame: 2.5years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 1year survival,overall survival,incidence rate of radioactive brain injured [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Enrollment: 5
Study Start Date: April 2008
Study Completion Date: August 2012
Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Prophylactic WBRT
Take the whole brain radiotherapy radiotherapy
Radiation: Radiotherapy
blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, antibiotics, antipyretic analgesics and anesthetics
Other Name: Radiotherapy,Dehydration drugs, elevated white blood drugs,
No Intervention: Observer Group
The first 14 days after randomization and patient follow-up after 1 month to complete the FACT-L questionnaire and the MMSE scale.

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.
