- Target number of participants260
- InterventionsAn increase of the radiation dose of on the primary tumor, from the standard dose of 50,4 Gy in daily fractions of 1.8 Gy, to 61.6 Gy in fractions of 2.2 Gy. The dose escalation will be administered with an conmittant boost technique, without increase of treatment time compared to the standard arm. The chemotherapy schedule is similar in both arms
- Primary outcomeLocal tumor control in the esophagus. Measured by anamnesis at 1, 2, 5, 8, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48 and 60 months, and by CT scans at 2, 8 and 18 months. Endoscopy and PET CT scan will be performed on indication.
- Secondary outcomeSurvival and grade 3-4 toxicity, measured at the same interval as local tumor control using an oesofagus toxicity form.
- TimepointsReport on adverse effect at 25% and 50% of required patients;
Final analyses at 18 months after entry of last patient.

- Brief summaryA dose escalation study in patients with inoperable esophageal cancer referred for definitive chemoradiation. Randomisation between the standard dose of 50,4 Gy in fractions of 1.8 Gy and the experimental arm of 50,4 Gy/1.8 Gy combined with a concomittant boost of 11,2 Gy to the primary tumor, leading to a total tumordose of 61.6 Gy in daily fractions of 2.2 Gy. In both arms once weekly chemotherapy consisting of paclitaxel 50 mg/m and carboplatin (AUC = 2) will be administered as radiosenstitzer.
