Gynecologic (endometrial) cancer: Radiation Therapy With or Without Cisplatin in Treating Patients With Recurrent Endometrial Cancer

Research Question:
Will radiation therapy in combination with weekly treatment with the chemotherapy drug cisplatin work better than the standard treatment for endometrial cancer? The standard treatment for patients with your type of cancer is radiation therapy alone.

Basic Study Information

Purpose:
Radiation therapy is a cancer treatment that uses radiation beams from outside your body, or radioactive seeds or pellets placed directly into the tissue to kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy alone has not been very effective in treating large tumors that recur (come back) in the pelvis, lymph nodes or vagina. Radiation therapy in combination with weekly treatment with the chemotherapy drug cisplatin has been found to be very effective in treating patients with advanced cervical cancers. Another purpose of the study is to evaluate the side effects of the combination of radiation therapy and cisplatin.
