The aim was to compare palliative radiotherapy regime 3000 cGy/l0F with a new regime 1750 cGy/5Ffollowed by a gap of 3 weeks and again 1750 cGy/5F with the help of L.Q. model and then correlating it clinically in cases of advanced head and neck cancer. Fifty patients were randomly assigned to either of the two regimes. Symptom palliation was same in both the arms but compliance was better in the new regime. Grade III mucositis and nausea occurred only in the first regime. This prospective randomized trial offers an alternative palliative regime, which may suit our remote rural patients.
