Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 5-year overall survival [ Time Frame: 5 year after treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 5-year progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 5 years after treatment ]
  • Pattern of disease recurrence [ Time Frame: within 5 years afer treatment ]
  • Treatment-related toxicity [ Time Frame: within 5 years after treatment ]
    Treatment related toxicity will be evaluated using CTCAE v3.0.

  • Quality of life [ Time Frame: within 1 year after treatment ]

Estimated Enrollment: 409
Study Start Date: September 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: RH group
Radical hysterectomy followed by tailored adjuvant therapy
Procedure: Radical hysterectomy
Piver-Rutledge type III hysterectomy New classification type C2 hysterectomy Open, vaginal, laparoscopic assisted, laparoscopic, robotic radical hysterectomy are all allowed
Radiation: Tailored adjuvant therapy
After radical hysterectomy, intermediate risk group according to GOG protocol 92 criteria will receive adjuvant radiation therapy. High risk group will receive adjuvant chemoradiation therapy with weekly cisplatin (40mg/m2, IV for 6 cycles). Extended filed radiation therapy is allowed in case of common iliac lymph node or para-aortic lymph node metastasis. Intracavitary brachytherapy and nodal or parametrial boost is not allowed.
Other Names:
  • Adjuvant radiation therapy
  • Adjuvant chemoradiation therapy
Active Comparator: CCRT group
Primary concurrent chemoradiation therapy
Radiation: Primary chemoradiation therapy
Patient will receive primary radiation therapy including external pelvic irradiation, intracavitary brachytherapy, and parametrial or nodal boost. Extended filed radiation therapy is allowed in case of common iliac lymph node enlargement. Patients will receive concurrent weekly cisplatin (cisplatin 40mg/m2 for 6 cycles) during external radiation therapy.
