Radiation Therapy With or Without Cisplatin in Treating Patients with Recurrent Endometrial Cancer


Recruiting | Phase II

Official Title:

A Randomized Trial of Pelvic Irradiation With or Without Concurrent Weekly Cisplatin in Patients with Pelvic-only Recurrence of Carcinoma of the Uterine Corpus

Study Purpose:

To determine if adding chemotherapy to radiation therapy is better than radiation therapy alone to treat patients with endometrial cancer that has come back.  


  • Radiation Therapy (high energy x-rays to kill cancer cells)
  • Chemotherapy: cisplatin
  • Lab Biomarker Analysis
  • Quality of Life questionnaires
  • ARM I: pelvic radiation therapy 5 days a week for 5 weeks. 
  • ARM II: cisplatin IV over 1-2 hours on day 1 and radiotherapy as in Arm I. Treatment with cisplatin repeats every 7 days for up to 5 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable side-effects.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years, then every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.

Key Participation Requirements:




19 years and older
