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

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • Local control rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • 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

  • 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
