A prospective randomized study of 80 cases of stage III lung cancer treated with different multimodality therapy was carried out. Life table and Kaplan-Meir curve were employed to calculate survival rate. Log rank-multivariate analysis and time t test were used to evaluate statistical values of the 80 cases, 40 SCLC were randomly treated with either chemotherapy (CT)-surgery-CT or CT-radiotherapy (RT)-CT. The year survival rates were better in the group treated with CT-surgery-CT, a statistical difference was observed in 2yr survival rate (P < 0.05). Thus, surgical resection for SCLC was better than RT after CT. The remaining 40 cases of NSCLC were randomly treated with either CT-RT-CT or RT-CT. Multivariate analysis showed a better statistical meaning in the 20 cases treated with CT-RT-CT than the other group, their 1, 2 year survival rates were 27%, 40% and 22%, 15%, respectively. Thus preradiative CT was beneficial for survival.
