  Purpose
The purpose of the study is to compare two regimen of chemotherapy used as first treatment for patients with larynx or hypopharynx tumors that would be treated with total laryngectomy. The standard treatment is a combination of 2 drugs (Cisplatin and 5FU). The aim of the study is to evaluate the potential benefit of the addition of a third drug (Docetaxel) in the chemotherapy regimen. Patients will receive 3 cycles of chemotherapy. Responders to the induction treatment are treated with radiation with a purpose of larynx preservation. Non responders patients will be treated with total laryngectomy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 3-years larynx preservation rate

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 5-years survival rate

Estimated Enrollment: 220
Study Start Date: December 2000
Detailed Description:
The purpose of the study is to compare two regimen of induction chemotherapy for patients with T3 and T4 larynx or hypopharynx carcinoma that would be treated with total laryngectomy. The aim of the study is to compare the standard regimen (Cisplatin + 5FU) versus the TPF regimen (Taxotere + Cisplatin + 5FU). Responders to the induction treatment are treated with radiation with a purpose of larynx preservation. Non responders patients will be treated with total laryngectomy followed by postoperative radiation.
