A Phase II Study of Postoperative Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) With Concurrent Cisplatin and Bevacizumab Followed by Carboplatin and Paclitaxel for Patients With Endometrial Cancer


I. To assess the treatment-related, grade 3+, non-hematologic adverse-event rate within 90
days from the start of treatment with concurrent intensity-modulated radiotherapy,
cisplatin, and bevacizumab followed by carboplatin and paclitaxel in patients with high-risk
endometrial cancer.


I. To evaluate treatment-related adverse events occurring within 1 year from the start of

II. To evaluate all treatment-related adverse events. III. To evaluate disease-free and
overall survival. IV. To evaluate local, regional, and distant failure.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients undergo pelvic intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) once daily, 5 days a week,
for 5 weeks. Patients may also undergo optional nodal boost radiotherapy and/or vaginal
brachytherapy boost. Patients also receive concurrent cisplatin IV over 1 hour on days 1 and
29 and bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes on days 1, 15, and 29. Beginning 4-6 weeks after
completing IMRT, cisplatin, and bevacizumab, patients receive carboplatin IV over 1 hour and
paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1. Treatment with carboplatin and paclitaxel repeats every
21 days for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 1 year,
every 6 months for 2 years, and then annually thereafter.
