A Phase-II Study Of Raltitrexed/Oxaliplatin Plus Radiotherapy Versus Radiotherapy In Subjects With Inoperable Esophageal Cancer
The aim of this study was to compare raltitrexed/oxaliplatin plus radiotherapy versus radiotherapy in subjects with inoperable esophageal cancer.

|Official Title:||A Multicenter Randomized Phase-II Study Of Raltitrexed/Oxaliplatin Plus Radiotherapy Versus Radiotherapy In Subjects With Inoperable Esophageal Cancer|
- Progression-Free-Survival [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Progression-free survival (PFS) is the length of time during and after medication or treatment during which the disease being treated (usually cancer) does not get worse.
- Response Rate [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Response rate (RR) is a figure representing the percentage of patients whose cancer shrinks (termed a partial response, PR) or disappears after treatment (termed a complete response, CR) . In simpler terms RR=PR+CR.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]People in a study or treatment group who are still alive for a certain period of time after they were diagnosed with or started treatment for a disease, such as cancer. The overall survival is often stated as a five-year survival, which means people in a study or treatment group who are alive five years after their diagnosis or the start of treatment.

Active Comparator: Radiotherapy
Radiotherapy 2.0Gy/day, 5 times/week,6 weeks In Subjects With Inoperable esophageal cancer
Experimental: Raltitrexed/Oxaliplatin Plus Radiotherapy
Raltitrexed 2.5mg/㎡ d1,Oxaliplatin 100mg/㎡ d1,q21d Plus Radiotherapy 2.0Gy/day, 5 times/week,6 weeks In Subjects With Inoperable esophageal cancer
Other Names:Drug: Oxaliplatin
Other Name: EloxatinRadiation: Radiotherapy
108 patients were randomized to receive Raltitrexed/Oxaliplatin Plus Radiotherapy (Raltitrexed 2.5mg/㎡ d1,Oxaliplatin 100mg/㎡ d1,q21d Plus Radiotherapy 2.0Gy/day, 5 times/week,6 weeks.)or Radiotherapy ( Radiotherapy 2.0Gy/day, 5 times/week,6 weeks) in subjects with Inoperable esophageal cancer. All patients will receive therapy of six weeks unless disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients were evaluated every 3 months .Progression-Free-Survival was the primary endpoint. Response Rate, Overall survival, toxicity of the therapy are other second endpoint.
