Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Open Label Drug: Paclitaxel and carboplatin combination
Paclitaxel will be administered at an appropriate dose (175 mg/m2) as a 3-hour continuous IV infusion every 21 days. Carboplatin will be administered at an appropriate dose utilizing the Calvert formula for determining the area under the curve (AUC) based on the patient's glomerular filtration rate (GFR).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease-free Survival [ Time Frame: 4 years - Median follow up time of 45.3 months ]
    Number of months of survival with no evidence of disease

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Toxicity [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Toxicity secondary to paclitaxel and carboplatin based upon the NCI common toxicity criteria version
