Pelvic Radiation Therapy or Vaginal Implant Radiation Therapy, Paclitaxel, and Carboplatin in Treating Patients With High-Risk Stage I or Stage II Endometrial Cancer
A Phase III Trial of Pelvic Radiation Therapy Versus Vaginal Cuff Brachytherapy Followed By Paclitaxel/Carboplatin Chemotherapy in Patients With High Risk, Early Stage Endometrial Carcinoma

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Implant radiation therapy uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether pelvic radiation therapy is more effective than vaginal implant radiation therapy, paclitaxel, and carboplatin in treating patients with endometrial cancer.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying pelvic radiation therapy to see how well it works compared with vaginal implant radiation therapy, paclitaxel, and carboplatin in treating patients with high-risk stage I or stage II endometrial cancer.

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To compare the recurrence-free survival of patients with high-risk stage I or II endometrial carcinoma treated with pelvic radiotherapy vs vaginal cuff brachytherapy, paclitaxel, and carboplatin.

Secondary

  • To compare survival of patients treated with these regimens.
  • To compare patterns of failure in patients treated with these regimens.
  • To compare physical functioning, fatigue, and neurotoxicity in patients treated with these regimens.
  • To correlate primary comorbid illnesses and obesity with survival, fatigue, and physical functioning.
  • To evaluate the psychometric properties (e.g., construct validity, reliability, sensitivity to treatment, and responsiveness over time) of the PROMIS Fatigue-SF1.
  • To evaluate fatigue measurement equivalence between patients with endometrial cancer and age-matched women from the general population of the United States.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to extent of surgery (hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy without lymph node sampling, lymph node dissection, or lymphadenectomy vs hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with lymph node sampling, lymph node dissection, or lymphadenectomy). Patients with stage II disease or stage I disease with a confirmed diagnosis of clear cell and/or papillary serous histology who are randomized to arm I are also stratified according to intent to use vaginal cuff brachytherapy (yes vs no). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

  • Arm I: Patients undergo conventional or intensity-modulated pelvic radiotherapy once daily, 5 days a week, for 5-6 weeks (total of 25-28 fractions) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with stage II disease or stage I disease with a confirmed diagnosis of clear cell and/or papillary serous histology may also undergo 1 or 2 intravaginal (i.e., vaginal cuff) brachytherapy boost treatments.
  • Arm II: Patients undergo vaginal cuff brachytherapy comprising 3-5 high-dose rate brachytherapy treatments over approximately 2 weeks or 1 or 2 low-dose rate brachytherapy treatments over 1-2 days. Beginning within 3 weeks after initiating brachytherapy, patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours and carboplatin IV over 30-60 minutes on day 1. Chemotherapy repeats every 21 days for up to 3 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients complete questionnaires to assess quality of life, neurotoxicity, and fatigue at baseline, 4 weeks, 10-11 weeks, 8 months, and 14 months.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed periodically for up to 10 years.

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Diagnosis of endometrial carcinoma, meeting 1 of the following criteria:

    • Stage I disease with high-intermediate risk factors with positive or negative cytology (e.g., grade 2 or 3 tumor, presence of lymphovascular space invasion, and/or outer half myometrial invasion), meeting 1 of the following criteria:

      • Age ≥ 70 years with 1 risk factor
      • Age ≥ 50 years with 2 risk factors
      • Age ≥ 18 years with 3 risk factors
    • Stage II (occult or gross involvement) disease (any histology) with or without risk factors

      • Occult disease is defined as lesions that are identified as an incidental finding after hysterectomy in the absence of gross cervical disease
    • Stage I-II disease with serous or clear cell histology with or without other risk factors allowed provided the disease is uterine-confined (with or without cervical stromal invasion or endocervical glandular involvement), and with peritoneal cytology negative for malignancy
  • Has undergone hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (laparotomy or laparoscopic approach, including robot-assisted) with or without pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy within the past 4-12 weeks
