Sample text

Evaluated the sensitivity of EUS in 27 patients with lung cancer (33). Twenty-two of the 27 patients had mediastinal lymph node enlargement on chest CT. Only 16 had a positive EUS evaluation. In 15 of the 16, the positive EUS was confirmed by FNA. Of the remaining 12 patients, two had lymph nodes found to be involved at operation. Overall sensitivity was 89%. One limitation of endoscopic ultrasound is that it can only be used to assess lymph nodes adjacent to the esophagus. Clearly it can complement, but does not replace, chest CT and mediastinoscopy in the staging of lung cancer.

Because of the importance of these trials, each study is discussed separately and summarized in Table 2. The Cancer and Leukemia Group B Trial This large trial (28,29) performed from 1981 to 1984 included 399 evaluable LSCLC patients distributed between three arms including chemotherapy alone (cyclophosphamide, etoposide, vincristine, and doxorubicin), initial chemoradiation (50 Gy thoracic irradiation and whole-brain irradiation concurrently with the initial cycle of chemotherapy), and delayed chemoradiation (chest and brain irradiation concurrently with the fourth cycle of chemotherapy at week 9).

Induction of DNA repair enzymes by chemotherapy is a plausible reason why thoracic irradiation delivered after chemotherapy may be less effective. SCLC is less responsive to irradiation when recurrent after chemotherapy and mechanisms of resistance may overlap; however, cross-resistance is not complete (18). The probability of mutation to radiotherapy resistance or radioresistance as a consequence of enhanced DNA repair efficiency secondary to previous chemotherapy should be minimized by the early deployment of both modalities.
