Detailed Description:
As the data in litterature does not provide the basis for well-argued statistical hypothesis, it is suggested to randomize 30 patients per arm. An IDMC will come to a decision after the inclusion of 10, 20 ans 40 patients on the efficacy and the toxicity profile and on whether to maintain the current clinical position, justifying randomisation . In order to take into account any possible effects of prior concomitant radiochemotherapy, patient will be stratified according to whether they have already undergone chemotherapy or radiochemotherapy.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with an histologically proven epidermoid cancer of the oesophagus

  • Patients who have not received chemotherapy for metastatic disease
  • ≥ 18 ans
  • Performance Status (ECOG) ≤ 2
  • People who are covered by private or state health insurance
  • Informed consent signed by the patient

Exclusion Criteria:
