Phase Ⅱ Study of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Followed by Concurrent Chemoradiation for Stage ⅣAB Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
Phase ⅡStudy of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Followed by Concurrent Chemoradiation for Stage ⅣAB Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma

The primary objective of this study is to determine the tolerance and overall survival in patients with stage ⅣAB NPC treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and concurrent chemoradiation.

Secondary objectives of the study are to evaluate the distant metastases free survival, and disease-free survival of patients with stage ⅣAB treated with this regimen

Concurrent chemoradiation is the standard treatment for locally advanced NPC. The survival benefit gained from adding neoadjuvant chemotherapy to concurrent chemoradiation has never been defined. In the present trail, we hope to assess the tolerance and survival benefits of neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by concurrent chemoradiation in patients with stage ⅣAB NPC.
Interventional
Phase 2
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
Drug: docetaxel, cisplatin, fluorouracil

neoadjuvant chemotherapy: docetaxel 75 mg/m2 on day 1; cisplatin 75 mg/m2 on day 1; and a continuous fluorouracil infusion at 500 mg/m2/d on days 1 through 5.

concurrent chemotherapy:cisplatin 40 mg/m2 weekly.

1
All patients will receive docetaxel 75 mg/m2 on day 1; cisplatin 75 mg/m2 on day 1; and a continuous fluorouracil infusion at 500 mg/m2/d on days 1 through 5. Cycles are repeated every 21 days for a total of three cycles. Patients then will receive definitive radiotherapy with 3D-CRT or IMRT, and cisplatin (40mg/m2) weekly during external radiotherapy.
Intervention: Drug: docetaxel, cisplatin, fluorouracil
