Title   [493322-9] A Phase III Trial of Adjuvant Chemotherapy as Primary Treatment for Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer Compared to Chemoradiation Alone: The Outback Trial (ANZGOG 0902/GOG-0274/RTOG 1174)
Description   This randomized phase III trial studies how well giving cisplatin and radiation therapy together with or without carboplatin and paclitaxel works in treating patients with locally advanced cervical cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin, and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. External radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Internal radiation uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether giving cisplatin and external and internal radiation therapy together with carboplatin and paclitaxel kills more tumor cells.
