The purpose of this study is to determine whether concurrent chemotherapy and IMRT is effective in the treatment of locally stage T3/T4 recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients compared with IMRT alone.
Locally T3/T4 recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) may be salvaged by intensity modulated-radiotherapy (IMRT), but local control is not good enough and late toxicities is usually severe The aim of this phase III randomized controlled study is to address the efficacy of concurrent chemotherapy (cisplatin) with IMRT to improve local control and lower the occurrence of severe late toxicities compared with IMRT alone for locally T3/T4 recurrent NPC patients.

Based on the radiobiological findings that accelerated tumor repopulation in nasopharyngeal carcinoma occurs in the late-course of radiation therapy, the investigators hypothesize that int...
The purpose of this study is to verify the role of adding cisplatin chemotherapy to the intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for stage II nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
This is a Phase III trial to study the effectiveness of nimotuzumab versus cisplatin combined with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in treating patients with stage II-III nasop...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of raltitrexed and cisplatin neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by concurrent radiotherapy with raltitrexed and cisplatin in...
This is a multicenter, randomized controlled, phase III clinical trial. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and adverse effect of PD-1 antibody with IMRT versus IMRT alon...
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients can be separated into two risk subgroups according to tumor responses to induction chemotherapy (IC). We aimed to elucidate the optimal cumulative cisplatin dos...
At present, the management of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is mainly based on radiotherapy, but there are many radiation delivery techniques such as intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and 2-dim...
Developing resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs has become a major problem in the management of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). To overcome this issue, use of natural plant products as chemosensitizer...
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is one of the common malignant tumors of the ear, nose, and throat in China. Cell apoptosis is expected to be closely related to prognosis. In recent years, with the developme...
To evaluate the evolution of radiation-induced brainstem injury (BSI) in nasopharyngeal-carcinoma (NPC) patients treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and to identify the critical dosim...
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.
A condition in which abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct, lobule, or nipple to other tissues of the breast. There are 3 types of breast carcinoma in situ: DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU; LOBULAR CARCINOMA IN SITU; and PAGET DISEASE OF THE NIPPLE
A transplantable carcinoma of the rat that originally appeared spontaneously in the mammary gland of a pregnant albino rat, and which now resembles a carcinoma in young transplants and a sarcoma in older transplants. (Stedman, 25th ed)
An adenocarcinoma characterized by the presence of cells resembling the glandular cells of the ENDOMETRIUM. It is a common histological type of ovarian CARCINOMA and ENDOMETRIAL CARCINOMA. There is a high frequency of co-occurrence of this form of adenocarcinoma in both tissues.
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.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
