Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so
they stop growing or die. It is not yet known which combination chemotherapy regimen is more
effective for urinary tract cancer.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of cisplatin plus
gemcitabine with or without paclitaxel in treating patients who have stage IV urinary tract
cancer.
