Cisplatin Based Chemoradiation v.s Radiotherapy for Cervical Cancer and With Clinically Defined Good Prognosis
This phase III study is designed to examine if low-risk, as defined by clinical and radiological parameters, stage IB-IIB cervical cancer patients treated by cisplatin-based chemoradiation, which is a recommended method by today's standard, have greater toxicities but similar survival rate as those treated by radiotherapy (RT) alone. Patients will be primarily treated with radiotherapy with same protocol, but without concurrent chemotherapy in the control arm, and with weekly cisplatin (40 mg/M2) for 6 courses in the study arm. This study will be conducted at all branches of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital except Chia-I.
Patients will be randomized to either arm after stratification of risk factors. Each arm will recruit 104 patients who have no LN and systemic metastasis as defined by CT/MRI and FDG-PET. The primary end point is grade 3-5 late toxicities, and secondary end points are 1) recurrence free survival; 2) acute toxicity of treatments; 3) sites of recurrence; 4) quality of life; 5) total treatment time. It is expected to take 5 years to recruit enough case number.

|Official Title:||Phase III Randomized Trial of Comparing CCRT vs. RT Alone for Cervical Cancer Patients Primarily Treated by Radiotherapy and With Clinically Defined Good-prognosis|
- As defined by clinical and radiological parameters, stage IB- IIB cervical cancer patients treated by cisplatin-based CCRT have greater toxicities but similar survival rate as those treated by RT alone [ Time Frame: 2012 ]
- To conduct a translational research to find out the molecular markers associated with radiosensitivity and distant metastasis in cervical cancer patients. [ Time Frame: 2013 ]

|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Cisplatin is available commercially as a sterile lyophilized white power in single-dose amber vials containing 10 mg or 50 mg of cisplatin for administration by IV infusion. Every effort should be made to obtain and record the lot numbers of the batches of cisplatin used. Unopened vials of cisplatin are stable for the shelf-life indicated on the package when stored in accordance with the manufacturers' instructions.
Other Name: Platinex (Cisplatin)
