Abstract

Objective: We evaluated different treatment results reported and showed the effect of treatment at single and multiple clinics for small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). We attempted to show a decreasing impact of chemotherapy (CT) and thoracic radiotherapy (RT) treatment results when implemented at different clinics for SCLC compared to the treatment results at a clinic.
