A phase I/II study of the hypoxic cell sensitizer misonidazole as an adjunct to high fractional dose radiotherapy in patients with unresectable squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck: a RTOG randomized study (#79-04).

Abstract

A randomized prospective trial was performed to study the toxicity and efficacy of the hypoxic cell sensitizer, misonidazole (MISO), used as an adjunct to high fractional dose radiotherapy in the management of unresectable Stage III and IV squamous cell carcinomas of the oral cavity, oropharynx and hypopharynx.
