Supplementing chemotherapy with radiation fails to improve relapse-free survival in patients with locally advanced endometrial carcinoma, according to US research.

The trial in more than 700 patients with stage III or IVA disease showed no difference in a composite of recurrence or death five years after enrolment between those randomised to receive chemotherapy plus radiotherapy and those who received chemotherapy alone.
