|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma||Radiation: Elective nodal irradiation (ENI) Other: Adjuvant chemotherapy only||Phase 3|
Thoracic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma after esophagectomy with at least 15 lymph nodes removed for adequate nodal staging.
R0 resection; T1-2, N+, M0.
After esophagectomy, patients are firstly stratified by numbers of lymph node metastasis (<3 or >=3). Then patients are randomized to 2 arms:
Adjuvant chemotherapy (4 cycles).
Adjuvant chemotherapy (4 cycles) + Elective Nodal Irradiation (bilateral supraclavicular fossa and mediastinum).
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||874 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Is Elective Nodal Irradiation (ENI) Necessary For Patients With Thoracic Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma Who Undergo Esophagectomy And With Pathological Stage Of T1-2,N+,M0 -- A Randomized Phase Ⅲ Trial|
|Study Start Date :||April 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 2015|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 2017|
After esophagectomy, patients in Arm B will receive adjuvant chemotherapy, followed by elective nodal irradiation (ENI)
Radiation: Elective nodal irradiation (ENI)
Active Comparator: A
After esophagectomy, patients in Arm A will receive adjuvant chemotherapy only
Other: Adjuvant chemotherapy only
- Overall survivalTo evaluate elective nodal irradiation (ENI) is better for the overall survival of patients with thoracic esophageal cancer after esophagectomy who with pathological stage of T1-2, N positive, M0
- Locoregional control rate
- Safety and Tolerability (incidence rate of adverse events)the incidence rate of adverse events, especially radiation-induced lung toxicity
- Failure patternTo evaluate the rationality of ENI after esophagectomy by analyzing the therapeutic failure patterns especially by comparing the in-field and out-of-field recurrences
