This study aims to assess the activity of a combination of cetuximab (weekly) with carboplatin + paclitaxel (every three weeks) comparing it to chemotherapy alone in terms of event-free survival (EFS).
The poor long-term results in the standard treatment of chemotherapy for cervical cancer make research into new, more beneficial treatment strategies necessary. Cetuximab is a new type of drug that blocks the epidermal growth factor receptor (anti-EFGR), and has shown significant activity in other cancers (colon, head and neck) where expression of EGFR is high. Cervical cancer cells express EGFR in a very high proportion of cases, especially in recurrent or resistant disease. This study evaluates the activity of the addition of cetuximab to full doses of carboplatin and paclitaxel.

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
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.
