PURPOSE Induction chemotherapy has not been shown to improve survival in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) in Phase III trials. To evaluate the effect of induction chemotherapy in NPC further, we performed subgroup analysis of two Phase III trials according to the T and N stage. METHODS AND MATERIALS Data from two phase III trials comparing cisplatin/epirubicin or cisplatin/bleomycin/5-fluorouracil followed by radiotherapy (RT) vs. RT alone in NPC were pooled together for analysis. Patients were… CONTINUE READING
