Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: Highland Hospital
This phase II/III trial compares the effect of the combination of high-dose cisplatin
every three weeks and radiation therapy versus low-dose cisplatin weekly and radiation
therapy for the treatment of patients with locoregionally advanced head and neck cancer.
Chemotherapy drugs, such as cisplatin, 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. This study is being done to find out if low-dose cisplatin given
weekly together with radiation therapy is the same or better than high-dose cisplatin
given every 3 weeks together with radiation therapy in treating patients with head
and neck cancer.
