A randomised phase III trial of high dose palliative radiotherapy (HDPRT) versus concurrent chemotherapy and HDPRT (C-HDPRT) in patients with good performance status, locally advanced/small volume metastatic NSCLC not suitable for radical chemo-radiotherapy.

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether adding chemotherapy to a short (less than six weeks) course of radiotherapy results in a greater improvement in symptoms and overall wellbeing (quality of life) compared with using a short course of radiotherapy alone in patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) who cannot be treated with surgery or a long (six weeks or longer) course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
