Retrospective SCLC evaluation 2018-2019

Short summary

A review of all patients treated for Small-Cell Lung Cancer with combined chemo-radiotherapy at the Department of Oncology at Vejle hospital in 2018 and 2019.


The treatment of patients with limited disease small cell lung cancer (LD-SCLC) has not changed during the last decade and consists of 4 series of chemotherapy concomitant with thoracic radiotherapy of 45 Gray in 30 fractions twice daily. The risk of relapse is significant. In a recent study from Norway, treatment results were improved by increasing the radiation dose to 60 Gray in 40 fractions, still twice daily. To gain more knowledge of the treatment results of danish patients we will do a retrospective analysis of all patients treated for LD-SCLC with chemo-radiotherapy at Vejle Hospital during the years 2018 and 2019. This knowledge will help form a new national prospective study.
