|Estimated Study Completion Date :||June 2010|
All patients will receive docetaxel 75 mg/m2 on day 1; cisplatin 75 mg/m2 on day 1; and a continuous fluorouracil infusion at 500 mg/m2/d on days 1 through 5. Cycles are repeated every 21 days for a total of three cycles. Patients then will receive definitive radiotherapy with 3D-CRT or IMRT, and cisplatin (40mg/m2) weekly during external radiotherapy.
