A randomised phase III study in advanced oesophageal carcinoma to compare dysphagia in patients treated with radiotherapy versus chemo-radiotherapy.

People with cancer of the oesophagus (gullet) often have trouble swallowing. Radiotherapy can help improve this problem. Using chemotherapy together with radiotherapy may work better but has more side effects. This trial will determine if it is better to use radiotherapy by itself or together with chemotherapy.
