  Purpose

The investigators will examine whether 2-cycles of DFP chemotherapy before definitive concurrent chemoradiation therapy (CCRT) can improve progression-free survival in locally advanced (Stage III & IVM0) hypopharyngeal and base of tongue carcinoma compared to definitive CCRT alone.

Further study details as provided by Samsung Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether addition of neoadjuvant chemotherapy before definite CCRT increase progression-free survival(PFS) compared with CCRT only [ Time Frame: 18 months after the enrollment of the last patients ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether addtion of neoaduvant chemotherapy increase complete response rate compared with CCRT only [ Time Frame: 18 months after enrollemnt of last patients ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine whether addtion of neoaduvant chemotherapy increase organ preservation rate compared with CCRT only [ Time Frame: 18 months after the enrollment of the last patient ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine whether addition of neoadjuvant chemotherapy to CCRT increase the number of patients with adverse events compared with CCRT only [ Time Frame: 18 months after the enrollment of the last patient ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
