Description

The purpose of this study is to determine if radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy administered (given) for a total of 4 cycles offers a benefit over chemotherapy alone administered over 6 cycles. In this study, 3 weeks of one treatment is considered one “cycle.” Today most women with endometrial cancer whose cancer has spread outside the uterus generally receive chemotherapy. Women who have disease outside the uterus may also receive radiation to the areas where the disease has spread. It is not clear whether giving chemotherapy alone or together with radiation is the best treatment.

You may qualify for participation in this study because you have endometrial cancer that has spread outside the uterus, but it is still contained in the abdomen (stomach area).
