Whole-Lung Irradiation to Treat Metastases?

This should be useful to our members with mets in the lungs. Thank you, Elodie, for posting.


I would not mind trying this on my Stage 4 Synovial Sarcoma in both lungs. I wish they had more studies on this type of treatment. I would love to have 3.8 years with NED. Chemo just does not work on Synovial Sarcoma with only 10-20% Overall Response Rate. I wish they would invent a Chemo drug with at least a 50-60% Overall Response Rate.
