Brief Summary:
This randomized phase II trial studies how well chemotherapy before surgery and radiation therapy works compared to surgery and radiation therapy alone in treating patients with nasal and paranasal sinus cancer that can be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, cisplatin, and carboplatin work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving chemotherapy before surgery and radiation therapy may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount of normal tissue that needs to be removed and treated with radiation.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Arm A (surgery, IMRT, cisplatin, carboplatin)
Patients undergo standard of care surgery. Beginning 4-6 weeks after surgery, patients undergo image guided IMRT QD for 5 fractions per week for 30 fractions. Patients with positive margins/positive ECS in lymph nodes undergo image guided IMRT QD for 5 fractions per week for 30 fractions and cisplatin IV over 1-2 hours or carboplatin IV over 30 minutes (for patients who are ineligible to receive cisplatin) weekly for 6 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Experimental: Arm B (docetaxel, cisplatin, carboplatin, surgery, IMRT)
Patients receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour and cisplatin IV over 1-2 hours on day 1. Patients who are ineligible to receive cisplatin receive carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 3 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then undergo standard of care surgery no later than 6 weeks following the last dose of chemotherapy. Beginning 4-6 weeks after surgery, patients undergo image guided IMRT QD for 5 fractions per week for 30 fractions. Patients with positive margins/positive ECS in lymph nodes undergo image guided IMRT QD for 5 fractions per week for 30 fractions and cisplatin IV or carboplatin IV weekly for 6 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Structure preservation rate defined as both skull base and orbit being preserved [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Fisher?s exact test will be used to compare the structure preservation rate between the two arms. The comparison between the two arms for structure preservation will be conducted separately (each at one-sided 0.05 significance level).

  2. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization, censoring follow-up at last date of contact, assessed for up to 5 years ]
    Log rank test will be used to compare OS between the two arms. The comparison between the two arms for OS will be conducted separately (each at one-sided 0.05 significance level).

  • Women of childbearing potential and sexually active males must be strongly advised to use an accepted and effective method of contraception or to abstain from sexual intercourse for the duration of their participation in the study
