Concurrent chemoradiation followed by adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Korea.
Concomitant approach using cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) has shown an excellent local control rate and significantly reduced distant metastasis in patients with locally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). However, optimal schedule and dosing of chemotherapy still need to be developed to reduce distant metastasis. This retrospective study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy, toxicity, and tolerability of a concurrent chemoradiation therapy (CCRT) regimen using cisplatin and 5-FU followed by adjuvant chemotherapy (AC) in patients with locoregionally advanced NPC.
