Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
Overall Status
The purpose of this study is to determine the therapeutic efficacy and complications of systemic consolidation therapy with paclitaxel plus carboplatin following primary chemoradiation for locally advanced cervical cancer.
Detailed Description
Systemic consolidation therapy with paclitaxel plus carboplatin (3 cycles per 3 weeks) following primary chemoradiation (3 cycles per 3 weeks) for locally advanced cervical cancer will elevate the therapeutic efficacy by removing the microscopic metastatic lesions which could not be identified by naked eye and diagnostic imaging tests.
