Brief Summary:
The incidence and mortality of esophageal cancer are at the forefront in China, among which the elderly patients account for a large proportion. Concurrent chemoradiotherapy is the standard treatment for inoperable locally advanced esophageal cancer. Most elderly patients with esophageal cancer cannot tolerate concurrent chemotherapy because of complications and other reasons. Immunotherapy has definite efficacy and low toxicity in advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, and the results combined with radiotherapy have also been preliminarily reported. Therefore, it is necessary to further explore the efficacy and safety of radiotherapy combined with immunotherapy in elderly patients with esophageal cancer.

Drug Information available for: Durvalumab

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Exprimental Arm
IMRT plus Durvalumab
Radiation: Radiotherapy
IMRT (Intensity Modulated RT) or 3D-CRT (three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy); 95% PGTV 59.92Gy/2.14Gy/28f; 95% GTVnd 59.92Gy/2.14Gy/28f; 95% PTV 50.40Gy/1.80Gy/28f; 5 days a week; 6 weeks.

Drug: Durvalumab
Durvalumab 1000 mg, intravenously (IV), on Day 1 of radiotherapy, every 3 weeks for up to 18 administrations.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 1-year ]
    PFS was assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST)1.1. Progression-free survival defined as the time from enrollment to the first documented disease progression of local recurrence or distant metastasis or death due to any cause.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 1-, 2- and 3-year ]
    Overall survival defined as the time from enrollment to death due to any cause.

  2. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 2- and 3-year ]
    PFS was assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST)1.1. Progression-free survival defined as the time from enrollment to the first documented disease progression of local recurrence or distant metastasis or death due to any cause.

  3. Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: during the intervention up to 60 weeks ]
    ORR was Assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors Version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1).

  4. Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: during the intervention up to 60 weeks ]
    DCR was Assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors Version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1).

  5. Number of participants with an adverse event [ Time Frame: Up to 60 weeks ]
    Evaluanted by CTCAE 5.0

  6. Quality of Life (QOL): questionnaire EORTC QLQ-C30 (version 3) [ Time Frame: up to 60 weeks ]
    Evaluate the quality of life via questionnaire EORTC QLQ-C30 (version 3), minimum value 30, maximum value 126, higher scores mean a worse outcome.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Quality of Life (QOL): questionnaire EORTC QLQ-OES18 [ Time Frame: up to 60 weeks ]
    Evaluate the quality of life via questionnaire EORTC QLQ-OES18, minimum value 18, maximum value 72, higher scores mean a better outcome.
