Simultaneously Integrated Dose Escalation for Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer

2016-08-26 12:38:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of minimal invasive surgical resection through simultaneously integrated dose escalation given concurrently with chemotherapy for locally advanced squamous cell cervical cancer.

Description

Concurrent radiation therapy and chemotherapy is the standard of care for locally advanced cervical cancer. While there are several acceptable means to boost the disease in the low pelvis (i.e. brachytherapy, IMRT, or external beam), there is limited research into minimal invasive surgical resection after maximal downstage. This protocol is designed to determine the dose escalation of both chemo and radiation for treating tumor bearing regions within the abdomen and pelvis, using an two drug chemotherapy in first cycle of mitomycin/cisplatin or taxol/cisplatin along with simultaneously integrated boost technique to Biological target area defined by PET scan. This dose escalation is to downstage disease for minimal invasive surgical resection.

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.

A skin carcinoma that histologically exhibits both basal and squamous elements. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
