Radiation therapy plus chemotherapy is the standard treatment for inoperable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Conventional radiation therapy is called photon therapy and uses x-ray beams. In this study, researchers are comparing chemotherapy plus photon therapy with chemotherapy plus proton therapy in patients with stage II-IIIB inoperable NSCLC. Proton therapy differs from photon therapy because the proton particles can stop shortly after passing through a tumor, and may therefore cause less damage to nearby healthy tissues than photon radiation therapy. Proton therapy may therefore enable doctors to give higher doses of therapy to the tumor. This study compares intravenous chemotherapy paired with either photon therapy or proton therapy, to determine how proton therapy compares with photon therapy for inoperable NSCLC.
