Radiation Therapy, Paclitaxel, and Carboplatin in Treating Patients With High-Risk Endometrial Cancer


In this study, radiation is "sandwiched" between paclitaxel/carboplatin chemotherapy in attempts to decrease the chance of the cancer returning in the pelvis or elsewhere in the body. This study will evaluate the tolerability of combining radiation with chemotherapy in this way. We will also evaluate any side effects that patients may experience with this treatment.
