Nasal and Paranasal Sinus Cancer: a study comparing chemotherapy before surgery &
radiation therapy Vs. surgery & radiation therapy alone
How well does chemotherapy before surgery and radiation therapy works compared to
surgery and radiation therapy alone in treating patients with nasal and paranasal
sinus cancer that can be removed by surgery?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester Medical Center
Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, cisplatin, and carboplatin work in
different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by
stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Radiation therapy
uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving chemotherapy
before surgery and radiation therapy may make the tumor smaller and reduce the amount
of normal tissue that needs to be removed and treated with radiation. This trial studies
how well chemotherapy before surgery and radiation therapy works compared to surgery
and radiation therapy alone in treating patients with nasal and paranasal sinus cancer.
