This ongoing phase II study is designed to assess the outcomes (survival and failure patterns) of therapy for localized esophageal cancer with conventional dose radiation (50.4 Gy) with concurrent continuous infusion 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and weekly carboplatin/paclitaxel. Patients with less than complete response or partial response received dose(More)
