We would like to congratulate Palma et al for their article, “Predicting Radiation Pneumonitis After Chemoradiation Therapy for Lung Cancer: An International Individual Patient Data Meta-analysis” (1). Traditional parameters that have commonly been associated with radiation-induced pneumonitis (RIP) include total dose of radiation, dose per fraction, volume of lung irradiated (eg, volume of lung exposed to doses of ≥20 Gy, ie, V20), and mean lung dose. Factors implicated less frequently include location of tumor, underlying pulmonary disease, age, smoking, and chemotherapeutic drugs such as, for example, actinomycin and bleomycin (2-4).
