In a recent article, McGowan et  al. reported on the first clinical trial using a phospoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitor as a radiosentisizer in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma [1]. Palliative thoracic radiotherapy (20 Gy in 5 fractions) was combined with buparlisib (a pan-class I PI3K inhibitor) at dose levels of 50 mg, 80 mg and 100 mg once daily. As no dose limiting toxicity was reported, 100 mg was considered to be the maximum tolerated dose. In a total of 21 treated patients (13 in the cohort with the highest dosage), three cases of grade III toxicity were seen which were r...
