  Serious Adverse Events


  Other Adverse Events


  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
  • HPV (human papilloma virus) status of tumors not available.
  • Therapy heterogeneity in the therapy; radiotherapy fairly consistent but chemotherapy regimens varied.
  • Small sample size is limiting.
