Radiation Therapy, Paclitaxel, and Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Uterine Cancer
This pilot clinical trial studies radiation therapy, paclitaxel, and carboplatin in treating patients with uterine cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or stopping them from dividing. Giving radiation with chemotherapy may kill more tumor cells.

|Official Title:||A Pilot Trial of Radiation Therapy "Sandwiched" Between Paclitaxel and Carboplatin in Patients With Uterine Carcinosarcoma|
- Recurrence-free survival [ Time Frame: Date of entry to date of reappearance of disease, assessed at 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]One-year recurrence-free survival probability will be estimated, with 95% confidence limits based on exact methods for the binomial distribution.
|Study Start Date:||May 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (paclitaxel, carboplatin, radiotherapy)
CHEMOTHERAPY (weeks 1-9, 14-22): Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours and carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 3 courses during weeks 1-9 and 14-22.
RADIATION THERAPY (weeks 8-16): Patients undergo external beam pelvic radiation therapy once a day, 5 days a week for 5 weeks during weeks 8-13. Patients then undergo HDR brachytherapy or IMRT once weekly during weeks 14-16.

I. To assess the one year recurrence-free survival in patients with uterine carcinosarcoma treated with "sandwich" therapy-including defining the patterns of recurrence in patients with carcinosarcoma who were treated with this regimen.
II. To evaluate the toxicity and tolerability of pelvic radiation "sandwiched" between cycles of paclitaxel/carboplatin chemotherapy in patients with uterine carcinosarcoma.
III. To correlate surrogate endpoint biomarkers with progression-free survival and prognosis.
CHEMOTHERAPY (weeks 1-9, 14-22): Patients receive paclitaxel intravenously (IV) over 3 hours and carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 3 courses during weeks 1-9 and 14-22.
RADIATION THERAPY (weeks 8-16): Patients undergo external beam pelvic radiation therapy once a day, 5 days a week for 5 weeks during weeks 8-13. Patients then undergo high dose radiation (HDR) brachytherapy or intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) once weekly during weeks 14-16.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.
