Half of lung cancers are diagnosed as locally-advanced non-small cell lung cancer (LA_NSCLC) in patients older than 60 years. However, elderly patients are rarely included in multimodal programs of inductive chemotherapy (CT) or chemo-radiation (CRT). We analyzed the feasibility and efficacy of induction CT or CRT followed by surgery or curative RT in elderly patients with LA-NSCLC.
