Study of a Predictor for Cervix Cancer
Cervix Cancer - Radiochemotherapy
Conditions: official terms
Uterine Cervical Neoplasms
Study Type
Study Phase
Phase 2
Study Design
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label
Name: local control at 19.8Gy
Type: Procedure
Overall Status
Non operated cervix cancer (diameter > 4 cm) and stade Ib2-IIb are usually treated by radio-chemotherapy.

Non control local rate is inexplicably close to 30%. However, important volume of those tumors and their hypoxia degree induce phenomenon of pathologic angiogenesis, explaining these therapeutic failures.

Persistence of tumor hypoxia could be a predictive factor of local control
