Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Scores of Quality of life [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assess the quality of life based on FACT-E.

  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assess the safety and tolerability based on NCI CTC V4.0


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease-free Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Three years disease free survival will be evaluated.

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Three years overall survival will be evaluated.

Detailed Description:

Patient Population:

Thoracic esophageal cancer able to tolerate tri-modality therapy; Clinical stage T3-4, N0-1, M0

Scheme:

Patients are randomized to 2 arms:

Arm A:

Paclitaxel/carboplatin and concurrent radiation (50.4Gy/28f) followed by surgery, consolidate paclitaxel/carboplatin 2 cycles.

Arm B:

Surgery followed by paclitaxel/carboplatin and concurrent radiation (50.4Gy/28f), consolidate paclitaxel/carboplatin 2 cycles.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically documented squamous cell carcinoma or adenocarcinoma of the thoracic esophagus (> 20cm from the incisors) or gastroesophageal junction are included.
  • No distant metastases (M0).
  • Patients will be stratified by stage (clinical N0 versus clinical N1).
  • Patients with tumours within 3 cm distal spread into gastric cardia as detected by esophagogastroscopy.
  • Resectable mediastinal nodes are eligible.
  • No prior chemotherapy for this malignancy.
  • No prior radiotherapy that would overlap the field(s) treated in this study.
  • Patients with other malignancies are eligible only if > 5 years without evidence of disease or completely resected or treated non-melanoma skin cancer.
  • Age > 18 years and able to tolerate tri-modality therapy at the discretion of the treating thoracic surgeon, medical and radiation oncologists. Tumours must be resectable after assessment by the thoracic surgeon.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Cancers of the cervical esophagus (< 20 cm are excluded).
  • Tumours that have > 3 cm of spread into cardia of the stomach are considered gastric cancers and are ineligible.
  • Patients with biopsy (by endoscopic ultrasound, laparoscopy, or laparotomy ) proven metastatic supraclavicular nodes are ineligible.
  • Patients with biopsy proven metastatic celiac nodes are ineligible.
