Brief Summary:
Insufficient migration and activation of tumour specific effector T cells seems to be the one important reason for inadequate host anti-tumour immune response. Ionizing radiation can induce a variety of immune responses. The goal of this randomized trial is to assess if a preoperative single fraction low dose radiation is able to improve anti-tumour immune response in operable early stage lung cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Radiation: Preoperative radiation Not Applicable

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cluster of differentiation (CD)8+ T cells in resected NSCLC [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    Frequencies of CD8+ T cells in resected NSCLC tumors determined by immunohistochemistry


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. T cell subtypes in resected NSCLC [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    Frequencies of CD3+, CD4+, CD45RO and Foxp3+ T cells in resected NSCLC tumors determined by immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Tumor reactive T cells [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Frequencies of tumor reactive T cells in blood and bone marrow before radiotherapy and after surgery
