Brief Summary:
This randomized phase III trial is studying cisplatin, radiation therapy, and tirapazamine to see how well they work compared to cisplatin and radiation therapy in treating patients with cervical cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and tirapazamine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Internal radiation uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Cisplatin and tirapazamine may make tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is not yet known whether giving cisplatin together with radiation therapy is more effective with or without tirapazamine in treating cervical cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free Survival - Percentage of Patients Alive and Progression Free [ Time Frame: From study entry until first disease progression, death or date of last contact, up to 6 years ]
    Patients' progression status based on clinical, radiological or pathological (histological) evidence of disease after study therapy. Progression includes any death without evidence of disease progression. Progression-free Survival (PFS) is defined as time in month from study enrollment to disease progression, death or date of last contact.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From study entry to death or last contact, up to 6 years ]
    The observed length of life from entry into the study to death or date of last contact.

  2. Adverse Events (Grade 3 or Higher) During Treatment Period [ Time Frame: All Adverse Events (AEs) occuring during treatment and up to 30 days after stopping the study treatment are reported ]
    Number of participants with a maximum grade of 3 or higher during treatment period. Adverse events are graded and categorized using CTCAE v3.0.
