Abstract

Purpose: Radiotherapy is the standard treatment for locally advanced cervical cancer. Recent results of the prospective randomized trials have shown an overall survival and local control advantage for cisplatin-based therapy given concurrently with radiation therapy. Thirty-nine patients who received concurrent chemoradiation between October 1999 and December 2000 were evaluated for treatment response, local control and toxicity.
