Study Interventions

Intervention Type:Radiation
Name:Proton Radiation Therapy
Description:Induction chemotherapy with two cycles of taxol and carboplatin given on day 1 and day 15. A five week coarse of proton radiotherapy begins on day 28 and is given once daily for the first two weeks and twice daily for the final 3 weeks. Weekly chemotherapy with carboplatin and taxol is given during proton therapy.
