Oesophageal Cancer

The TROG 03.01 trial was the largest randomised phase three trial in advanced oesophageal cancer and was a significant undertaking for a palliative care trial, namely where the emphasis was on the best, yet simplest and least toxic treatment. The research showed that radiation therapy alone is as effective in decreasing swallowing complications experienced by advanced oesophageal cancer patients as radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy, thus allowing patients to forgo chemotherapy.
