Good PS Stage III NSCLC: Where is There No Randomized Data? Use of Any Advanced Technology RT Tools? Selection of Best Chemo to Give Concurrently with RT Use of Functional Imaging in RT Planning/Assessment Higher RT Dose with a Standardized Chemo Regimen Use of “Targeted Agent” Concurrent with Chemo-RT
State III NSCLC Survival by Local Tumor Control Status Median Survival Pts with Local Control (n=674) 18.6 mo 24% Pts without Local Control (n=761) 15.5 mo 6% p < 0.0001

RTOG 0617: Standard vs High RT Dose Question 423 Patients Evaluated in June 2011 DMC Analysis Median Follow-up is 9 months After 90 Deaths, High RT Dose Arm Crossed Futility Boundary 10 Treatment-Related Deaths: – 3 in Standard Dose Arm – 7 in High Dose Arm Most other Deaths Attributed to Disease Progression
Can PET/CT Assess RT or ChemoRT Efficacy Earlier? This may be the Most Personalized Care for Stage III Patients!

Major Limitation... 12-16 week waiting period following RT before assessing response/efficacy/prognosis/prediction can seem like an eternity!
PET during Weeks 1&2 of RT Aerts HJWL, IJROBP 2008 "The location of the low and high FDG uptake areas within the tumor remained stable during RT. This knowledge may enable selective boosting of high FDG uptake areas within the tumor."
Mid-course FDG-PET & Outcome Kong, JCO 2007 "Although there were not enough patients to perform survival analyses in this study, a significant association of metabolic response and peak FDG activity between during-RT and post-RT scans suggests a potential of using the during-RT PET response (at approximately 45 Gy) to predict long-term survival in lung cancer."
PET-based Adaptive Radiotherapy for Stage III NSCLC – RTOG 1106 REGISTERREGISTER FDG-PET Off Study – D/C RT RT to 64 Gy. RANDOMIZERANDOMIZE RT to 64 Gy + 10+ Gy boost based on FDG-PET FDG-PET ChemoRT 44 Gy SD/Response PD
FDG-PET based Adaptive RT Feng, IJROBP 2009 "Tumor metabolic activity and volume can change significantly after 40-50 Gy of RT. Using mid-RT PET volumes, tumor dose can be significantly escalated or normal tissue complication probability reduced."
Lung Functional Region Classification CT and Ventilation-SPECT Lung quality and ventilation-SPECT is variable between lungs Radiation planning identifying partially functioning, dysfunctional and functional lung can assist in individualizing therapy
V/Q SPECT to Individualize Adaptive RT The dose of a functioning lung region decreases from 30-50% to 15-30% after re- optimization.
Summary: Stage III NSCLC Chemo-RT No Fully Personalized Therapy Thoracic RT is Becoming Anatomy and Response Dependent RT Optimization of Interest Despite RTOG 0617 Changes in Details of Care not All Subject to Clinical Trials
