Paclitaxel In combination with DDP and 5-FU(TPF) as neoadjuvant chemotherapy in treating boundary resectable locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: A phase II clinical trial.


Esophageal cancer is one of the most common malignant tumor in China. In Asian countries, esophageal squamous carcinoma is the main pathological type of esophageal carcinoma. Prognosis of esophageal squamous carcinoma is usually poor and surgery is the only radical treatment. However, the optimal therapy pattern for local advanced esophageal carcinoma is still unclear. Part of the patients that clinical staging as T4 and presents multiple lymph node metastasis and esophageal carcinoma with large diameters are initially diagnosed as boundary resectable, which means patients may be able to undergo R0 resection. However, for patients who are diagnosed as boundary resectable esophageal carcinoma, there are still no sufficient studies implicate that how to improve R0 resection rate by neoadjuvant chemotherapy. DDP in combination with 5-FU and docetaxel regimen(DCF) was reported as effective neoadjuvant chemotherapy in treating esophageal squamous carcinoma. However, studies also showed that the DCF regimen caused severe adverse reaction. The mechanism of paclitaxel is similar to docetaxel while with less adverse events than docetaxel. Based on the research situation mentioned above, the investigators decided to conduct a phase II clinical trial to further explore the efficacy and safety of paclitaxel in combination with DDP and 5-FU (TPF) regimen in treating locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A carcinoma derived from stratified squamous epithelium. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A mixed adenocarcinoma and squamous cell or epidermoid carcinoma.

Unusual tumor affecting any site of the body, but most often encountered in the head and neck. Considerable debate has surrounded the histogenesis of this neoplasm; however, it is considered to be a myoblastoma of, usually, a benign nature. It affects women more often than men. When it develops beneath the epidermis or mucous membrane, it can lead to proliferation of the squamous cells and mimic squamous cell carcinoma.

An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
