  Purpose
Carcinoma cervix is a common malignancy in women in developing countries including India. The standard treatment of locally advanced cervical cancer (Stages IB2 to IIIB)is concomitant chemoradiation (CT RT) using platinum based chemotherapy. Some studies, including a meta-analysis conducted by the Cochrane group, have indicated that few courses of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) followed by surgery may be superior to radical radiation alone for these patients. However NACT-Surgery approach has never been compared to the current standard of concomitant CT RT. The present study is undertaken to compare, in a randomized trial, NACT(3 courses of paclitaxel-carboplatin) followed by surgery to concomitant CT RT in stages IB2 to IIB squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix.

Condition Intervention Phase
Cancer of Cervix Drug: NACT Procedure: Radical abdominal hysterectomy (class III), BPLND & lower para aortic lymph node sampling Drug: Inj.Cisplatin Radiation: Concurrent chemo radiotherapy Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Prospective Randomized Trial of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy and Surgery Versus Concurrent Chemoradiation Therapy in Patients With Stage IB2-IIB Squamous Carcinoma of the Uterine Cervix

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease Free Survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Disease free survival will be calculated from the date of entry into the study to the date of first physical or radiographic evidence disease relapse or death due to disease or last follow up visit.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Over all survival [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
    Over all survival will be calculated from the date of entry into the study to the date of death due to any cause or the last follow up visit.

  • Rate of Distant Metastases [ Time Frame: 7 years ]

Enrollment: 635
Actual Study Start Date: September 4, 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 31, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 31, 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
