Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: pemetrexed+carboplatin/cisplatin+radiation therapy->docetaxel
Patients received pemetrexed 500mg/m2 days 1,29+cisplatin 25 mg/m2 days 1-3,29-31 + Radiation 6000 cGy (200 cGy/day). Patients with complete response(CR), partial response(PR) or stable disease(SD) with manageable toxicity received docetaxel 60 mg/m2 days 57,78.
Drug: pemetrexed
Pemetrexed 500mg/m2 IV on day 1 every 4 weeks for 2 cycles

Drug: cisplatin
Cisplatin 25mg/m2 IV on day 1-3 every 4 weeks for 2 cycles
Other Name: platinol

Radiation: thoracic radiation therapy
Chemoradiotherapy, radiation 60Gy with 2 cycles of pemetrexed+ carboplatin/cisplatin

Drug: docetaxel
Docetaxel 60 mg/m2 IV on day 57 every 3 weeks for 2 cycles
Other Name: taxotere

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  2. Local control rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  3. The short-term quality of life (QOL) assessed using FACT-E score [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    FACT-E score at the 4 months after docetaxel consolidation therapy

  4. Rate of CTCAE grade 2 or higher radiation pneumonitis [ Time Frame: 1 years ]
    The investigators will assess the rate of symptomatic radiation pneumonitis in patients who received the radiation therapy
