Phase 2
Study Design
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Fractionated stereotactic body radiation therapy
Type: Radiation
Overall Status
The study population will exist of patients with a histological diagnosis of NSCLC, stage T1, T2 or T3NO who are not fit for or who refuse surgery. A prospective data analysis will be performed on tumor response, potential acute and late toxicity and survival. A radiotherapy dose of 4x15Gy or 3x 20Gy will be given over 2 weeks with dynamic 3D-conformal arc therapy (Novalis TM)
