The Outback Trial: A phase III trial of adjuvant chemotherapy following chemoradiation as a primary treatment for locally advanced cervical cancer compared to chemoradiation alone.
The purpose of this study is to compare standard treatment, radiation therapy combined with the chemotherapy drug cisplatin (chemo-radiation), to standard chemo-radiation therapy plus additional experimental chemotherapy with FDA approved agents carboplatin and paclitaxel to see if it reduces the risk of tumor recurrence and improves overall survival.
