This session will discuss current evidence and emerging treatment options in the management of SCLC. An overview of SCLC will be provided including definitions, staging, epidemiology, pathology and ongoing clinical trials. The rationale for new systemic agents and immunotherapy will be reviewed. Pertinent controversies including the timing of radiation and commonly delivered dose fractionations in limited stage SCLC; as well as the merits of consolidative thoracic radiation and stereotactic radiotherapy in extensive stage SCLC will be discussed. Finally, the current role of prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) will be discussed in the context of emerging strategies such as hippocampal sparing PCI, MRI surveillance, immunotherapy and intracranial stereotactic radiotherapy.
