S0216, Combination Chemotherapy and RT in Treating Patients With Stage III or Stage IV Head and Neck Cancer


Docetaxel (NSC-628503), Cisplatin (NSC-119875), And 5-Fluorouracil (NSC-19893) Induction Chemotherapy Followed By Accelerated Fractionation/Concomitant Boost Radiation And Concurrent Single Agent Cisplatin (NSC-119875), In Patients With Advanced Squamous Cell Head And Neck Cancer


Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Combining more than one chemotherapy drug with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells.
