Surgery, Chemotherapy, and Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Peritoneal Cancer

Surgery, Chemotherapy, and Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Peritoneal Cancer

Background:
Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving the drugs directly into the tumor after surgery and combining them with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells. This is a Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy in treating patients who have peritoneal cancer.

Objectives:
Determine the response rate, duration of response, and duration of survival of patients with peritoneal mesothelioma treated with surgery, intraperitoneal chemotherapy, and whole abdominal radiotherapy.
