Three weekly cisplatin based chemoradiation is to be compared the compliance, toxicity, and response rates with the weekly cisplatin based chemoradiation in the treatment of locoregionally advanced cervical cancers.
This study is to compare the compliance, toxicity, response and survival rate between concurrent chemoradiation with weekly cisplatin 40mg/m2 and three-week cisplatin 75mg/m2 in patients with advanced cervical cancer. Patients with primary untreated invasive squamous cell carcinoma, adenosquamous carcinoma or adenocarcinoma of the cervix from stage IIB to IVA were enrolled. Patients with histologically proven locoregionally advanced cervical cancer will be randomized into two treatment arm; Arm I, concurrent chemoradiation with weekly cisplatin 40mg/m2 for six times; Arm II, concurrent chemoradiation with three-week cisplatin 75mg/m2 for three times. The compliance and toxicity during the chemoradiation is the primary endpoint. Response rate and the overall survival will be analyzed as secondary endpoints.

There will be approximately 14,000 new patients with invasive cervical cancer diagnosed in the United States in 2003 with about 4,000 deaths from this disease. This accounts for approxim...
Concurrent chemoradiation (CCRT) is the standard therapy for locally advanced cervical cancer. However, the most effective chemotherapy regimen is controversial. Weekly cisplatin, h...
The standard postoperative treatment for patients with cervical cancer who had high-risk factors is chemoradiation. Generally, weekly cisplatin or 5FU+cisplatin every 3 week have been used...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and tirapazamine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from di...
This study will be conducted in two parts. Part 1 will determine whether administration of MK1775 in combination with topotecan and cisplatin is generally well-tolerated and causes clinica...
This study aimed to retrospectively evaluate the toxicity and clinical outcomes in patients of locally advanced cervical cancer treated with three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) and concur...
Single-cell sequencing technology is a promising systematic and comprehensive approach to delineate clonal associations between cells. The present study collected 13 and 12 cervical cells from fresh t...
Cisplatin and cetuximab are both systemic therapies commonly used in combination with radiation (RT) for the definitive treatment of head and neck cancers, but their comparative efficacy is unclear.
BACKGROUND Resistance to cisplatin results in recurrence or relapse of cervical cancer in women. An understanding of the mechanisms of cisplatin resistance will be important to improve the efficacy of...
To induce cisplatin-resistant cervical squamous carcinoma cell line and investigate the drug resistant mechanisms and adenovirus trans-gene therapeutical treatment.
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.
Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
