Abstract

The results of treatment of 80 patients with non-small cell lung cancer using the Chinese-made "Whole-Body" gamma-knife system were analyzed. Primary focus and involved lymph nodes were exposed. Neither gap between primary focus and involved lymph node or nodes, nor organs of the mediastinum were exposed. Exposure regimens were: STD = 4 Gy (2.5 - 10 Gy) 5 times a week; TTD=48 Gy (27-52 Gy) per primary focus and 4 Gy (3-6 Gy) 5 times a week; TTD = 43.5 Gy (30-52 Gy) per lymph nodes (105.6 - 150 Gy = equ.). Complete response was observed in 27.5% (22/80), partial - 42.5% (34/80). Overall survival was 61.3% among those sick for one year; 41.5%--2 years and 20.75%--3 years (mean survival time--20 months).
