A Phase III Trial of Adjuvant Chemotherapy as Primary Treatment for Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer Compared to Chemoradiation Alone: The Outback Trial
Diseases and Conditions Researched
What is the purpose of this trial?
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin, and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. External radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Internal radiation uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. It is not yet know whether giving cisplatin and external and internal radiation therapy together with carboplatin and paclitaxel kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III ;trial ;studies ;how well giving cisplatin and radiation therapy together with or without carboplatin and paclitaxel works in treating patients with locally advanced cervical cancer.
