Irradiation of advanced head and neck cancer with large daily fractions. Preliminary results of a prospectively randomized clinical trial.

Abstract

The irradiation of locally advanced, inoperable, squamous cell caricinomas of the head and neck with conventional fractionation schedules using 200 rads/day has produced poor results. A prospectively randomized, clinical trial has been started comparing conventional with large daily fractions of 400 rads/day for 10-12 treatments. Results suggest that improved tumor control and survival rates might be obtained with the use of large daily fractions.
