Study Comparing Isolated Pelvic Perfusion With TNF-α 0.3 mg and Melphalan 1.5 mg/kg Versus Standard Treatment in Patients With Non Resectable, Recurrent Gynaecologic or Digestive Pelvic Cancer

This study has been completed.

Randomised phase 3 trial comparing 2 arms: an experimental treatment (Isolated pelvis perfusion) and a standard treatment (systemic chemotherapy +/- radiotherapy +/- surgery).

Patients included have a non resectable, recurrent gynaecologic or digestive pelvic cancer.

The aim of the study is to show a 25% increase in 1 year overall survival rate with isolated pelvic perfusion.
