Özet

Introduction: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide. Smoking cigarettes is the predominant risk factor. Chemotherapy (CT) plays an integral part in treating locally advanced-non-small cell carcinoma of the lung (LA-NSCLC) as it improves survival in all subgroups of patients. In this study, our aim was to perform a retrospective overview of our data in LA-NSCLC patients and to explore which CT regimen is more effective during chemoradiotherapy (CRT).
