Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy May Be Feasible for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
the Cancer Therapy Advisor take:
Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) could be an option for treating patients with operable stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), a recent study published online first in the journal The Lancet Oncology has shown.
For the study, researchers conducted a pooled analysis of the STARS and ROSEL studies, which closed early due to slow accrual. In the intention-to-treat population, 58 patients with clinical T1-2a, N0M0, operable NSCLC were enrolled and randomly assigned 1:1 to SABR or lobectomy with mediastinal lymph node dissection or sampling.
Results showed that estimated overall survival at 3 years was 95% (95% CI: 85-100) in the SABR group versus 79% (95% CI: 64-97) in the lobectomy group (HR = 0.14; 95% CI: 0.017-1.190; log-rank P = 0.037). Researchers found that recurrence-free survival at 3 years was 86% (95% CI: 74-100) and 80% (95% CI: 65-97) in the SABR and surgery groups, respectively (HR = 0.69; 95% CI: 0.21-2.29; log-rank P = 0.54).
The researchers note that because of the small patient sample size and median follow-up of only 40.2 months in the SABR group and 35.4 months in the surgery group, additional randomized studies comparing the two in patients with operable NSCLC are needed.
