Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment related toxicities [ Time Frame: at 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Acute and chronic toxicities.

  • Tumor response after preoperative treatment [ Time Frame: assessed at 4-5 weeks after the completion of preoperative treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: at 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: at 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: July 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Nimotuzumab+chemoradiotherapy Other: Nimotuzumab+chemoradiotherapy

Nimotuzumab 200mg per week will be administered concurrent with platinum-based chemotherapy and intensity-modulated radiation therapy. After the preoperative treatment, patients will be assessed for tumor response and operability. For those who are considered to be candidates for operation, radical surgery will be performed.
