The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of the combination of the two drugs, docetaxel (Taxotere®) and carboplatin (Paraplatin®) followed by radiation directed at the tumor in treating your endometrial cancer.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)

Further study details as provided by Carilion Clinic:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • to estimate the overall response rate (ORR) for women with newly diagnosed stages III-IV or recurrent endometrial carcinoma treated with docetaxel and carboplatin followed by tumor volume directed pelvic plus or minus para-aortic irradiation. [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of chemotherapy followed by radiation therapy ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To estimate the progressive free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years. Yearly after 5 years. ]
  • To estimate overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: every 3 months for 2 years then every 6 months for 3 years ]
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability profile of this regimen [ Time Frame: during treatment ]

Enrollment: 46
Study Start Date: April 2005

Primary Completion Date: April 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
1 Drug: Docetaxel and Carboplatin
docetaxel (75 mg/m2) + carboplatin (AUC 6) IV every 3 weeks X 6 cycles

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

- All patients with advanced endometrial adenocarcinoma, stage III A, B, C and Stage IV confined to the pelvis, and recurrent disease limited to the pelvis.

Surgical stage III and limited stage IV disease, including those patients with positive adnexa, tumor invading the serosa, positive and/or para-aortic nodes, pelvic metastases, positive pelvic washings or vaginal involvement.

Histology must be adenocarcinoma, adenosquamous cell, squamous cell, clear cell or serous papillary carcinoma

Status post surgical resection, including a hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy within the past 6 weeks (Pelvic lymph node and para-aortic lymph node sampling are optional)

Patients may be sub-optimally or optimally debulked (disease < 2 cm). Patients are eligible with measurable disease or evaluable disease. All positive para-aortic node patients must be further staged by chest CT scan. If chest CT scan is negative, patients are eligible.

Patients who have met the pre-entry criteria including following lab findings:

ANC > 1500, Platelet count > 100,000/mm3, Hemoglobin ≥ 8 mg/dl, Creatinine < 2.0 mg/dl.

Total Bilirubin must be within normal limits. (WNL)

AST or ALT and Alkaline Phosphatase must be within the range allowing for eligibility

Patients who have signed an approved informed consent.

GOG Performance Grade 0, 1, or 2.

Women ≥ 18 years of age

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients with Stage IV or recurrent disease outside of the pelvis.

Patients who have had prior pelvic or abdominal radiation therapy.

Patients with concomitant malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancer.

Patient with a prior malignancy who have been disease-free for < 5 years or who received prior chemotherapy or radiation therapy for that malignancy.

Patients with a history of serious co-morbid illness that would preclude protocol therapy.

Patients with an estimated survival of less than three months.

Patients with parenchymal liver metastases.

Patients who received prior chemotherapy excluding low-dose methotrexate for rheumatologic reasons.

Histology consistent with uterine sarcomas, carcinosarcoma or leiomyosarcoma.

Women with baseline peripheral neuropathy Grade ≥ 2.

Women with a history of severe hypersensitivity reaction to drugs formulated with polysorbate 80.
