RTOG 1008 Phase II/III Chemo-Radiation in High Risk Salivary Gland tumors/ Yuhchyau
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: Highland Hospital
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used
in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor
cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet
known whether radiation therapy is more effective when given together with chemotherapy
or alone after surgery in treating salivary gland tumors.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase II/III trial is studying radiation therapy with or
without chemotherapy to see how well it works in treating patients with high-risk
malignant salivary gland tumors that have been removed by surgery.
