For esophageal high incidence countries, ranking first in the world to lose the majority of patients diagnosed radical resection. Treatment of unresectable esophageal received increasing attention. Concurrent chemotherapy is the standard treatment of unresectable esophageal programs. IMRT (intensity modulated radiation therapy, IMRT is Bjarngard, Kijewski equal to the late 1970s early 1980s, the current radiotherapy technology has shown a survival benefit in head and neck tumors. docetaxel, paclitaxel class anticancer drugs, its complex treatment of breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and ovarian cancer have better efficacy and side effects than paclitaxel. now review our hospital 40 patients with esophageal cancer intensity modulated synchronization docetaxel + cisplatin treatment, reported below.

1 Materials and Methods

1.1 General Information

Our hospital from January 2010 to June 2010 to accept intensity-modulated radiotherapy synchronization Dorsey his race + cisplatin chemotherapy in 40 patients including 26 males and 14 females, the male to female ratio of 1.8: l age 46-62 years old, median age of 58 years old. lesions: the cervical two cases, the upper thoracic 10 cases, 28 cases of middle thoracic esophageal imaging Length: 17 cases <5cm, 23 patients> = 5cm clinical stage: Ⅲ 36 cases, Ⅱ of four cases degree of differentiation: grade Ⅰ 1 cases, 22 cases of grade Ⅱ, Ⅲ 17 cases. pathology: squamous cell carcinoma 40 cases of radiation dose 54-63Gy, median dose 59.4Gy. weeks :2-6 weeks of chemotherapy, the median weeks Number of 6 weeks.

1.2 Treatment

1.3 Evaluation Criteria

Evaluation of tumor foci flinch term evaluation. Complete remission (CR): tumor dissipated to maintain more than four weeks, no new lesions; partial remission (PR): tumor regression in 50% maintained for at least four weeks, no new lesions; without change (NC): tumor regression <50% or increase <25%; disease progression (PD): tumor increases> 25% or new lesions CR plus PR total efficiency. radiation injury graded according to the RTOG acute radiation injury The grading criteria to determine the toxicity was recorded according to the U.S. National Cancer Institute NCI CTC 2.0 version of the anti-cancer drug in acute and subacute toxicity manifestations and grading standards,
Statistical package of 1.4 was used for statistical SPSS17. 0. Survival rate, local control rate was estimated using the life table method, the survival rates compare with the Kaplan Meier method and Logrank test, the survival rate impact factor analysis using COX regression. P <0.05 was considered statistical significance.

1.5 follow-up back to check the use of electronic medical records system, combined with telephone follow-up of patients every 6 months follow-up. Return visit rate of 90%.

3 to discuss the current mainstay of treatment for treatment of esophageal cancer is surgical resection and radiation therapy. Concurrent chemoradiotherapy is locally advanced or neck, esophagus patients treatment surrounding normal means local control or the main reason for the failure of the recurrence radiation therapy Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT is one of the world's most advanced radiotherapy technology, high doses of radiation can be given target organ dose is lower, so you can irradiated tumor dose reduction in patients with complications of radiotherapy and intensity modulated radiation therapy in the clinical applications of esophageal reported less review of the literature [2-4] reported esophageal cancer intensity modulated radiotherapy tumor response rate of 90% or more , the group of patients with tumor response rate was 95% recently but the findings related side effects in the treatment of patients increased significantly, but patients could tolerate from the literature [5-6] Road esophageal cancer intensity modulated plans with three-dimensional conformal shaped plan comparison can be seen IMRT irradiated tumor uniformity is poor, the target memory too much high prescription dose region, but the protection of normal organs was significantly better than the three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy. so ICRU83 Document re define the the prescription dose distribution of the target area. This can be explained by the tone observed strong treatment of patients with clinical radiation esophagitis and tracheal injury is significantly higher than the S & P put or three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy patients.

Fewer esophageal intensity-modulated radiotherapy and three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy controlled clinical studies, intensity-modulated radiotherapy in esophageal cancer treatment can bring the survival benefit opinions are not uniform. Qiu Rong, Wang Yuxiang [7-8] of the tone clinical efficacy of radiation therapy and three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy, that: IMRT and 3D-CRT treatment T4 esophageal cancer ,1-3-year local recurrence-free survival advantage is not obvious, there are authors believe [9] intensity modulated radiation therapy can significantly improve esophageal cancer 1-3 year local control rate and survival rate of patients with better protection of normal tissue in this group and 2-year survival rate was 80%, 64.5%, 1,2-year local control rate was 89.5%, similar to the 77.5 percent reported current literature IMRT treatment for esophageal cancer, esophageal tumor length prognostic factors, clinical observation to longer tumor to recur. intensity-modulated radiotherapy carry units of esophageal cancer, longer time of the follow-up, may be able to see clinical benefit. esophagus is a hollow serial organ restricted high-dose irradiation of the tumor, is also not as powerful in the treatment of head and neck tumors displaying IMRT. addition esophageal cancer cause of death about half FarEasTone transfer only more effective drug treatment is essential.

Non-surgical patients with esophageal cancer, concurrent chemotherapy is currently the standard treatment [10] DDP + 5-FU is still considered the standard chemotherapy [11]. Treatment of esophageal cancer drugs in recent years is the most widely used in clinical applications purple shirt class of drugs. paclitaxel is a cycle specific broad-spectrum anti-cancer drugs, and radiosensitizer role. generally believed that paclitaxel radiosensitization concentration of 10 ~ 100 nmol / L, paclitaxel tumor cells 12 ~ 24 h after the delay radiation therapy increased sensitization relatively large, therefore the extension of low concentrations of paclitaxel the continuing role of time, can achieve therapeutic purposes and reduce treatment related toxic Vice reaction. Wu Ling-British [12] study of paclitaxel weekly therapy program in the treatment of ovarian cancer than advantage of monthly therapy slightly lower toxicity of strength. pharmacological effects of docetaxel than paclitaxel, and anti-tumor activity of paclitaxel 1.3 to 12 times, cardiovascular toxicity than paclitaxel [13] The study found that the intensity modulated radiation therapy be weekly dose of docetaxel plus cisplatin chemotherapy in gastrointestinal reactions gastrointestinal reactions decreased significantly over the past month program of paclitaxel and cisplatin, effective and reliable.

Intensity modulated radiation therapy synchronization docetaxel + cisplatin weeks in the treatment of esophageal cancer-term efficacy and better local control rate, but compared with three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy did not improve the local control, although the increase in toxicity but can tolerate, treatment plan evaluation application of the ICRU 83 document as soon as possible, the control target dose homogeneity in the region, to reduce IMRT acute injury. concurrent chemotherapy for adjuvant chemotherapy should continue to reduce the far turn, may improve the survival rate of esophageal cancer treatment.
