Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The experimental group will receive a sequential adjuvant treatment of pelvic chemoradiation, followed by 4 cycles of tislelizumab and carboplatin plus paclitaxel chemotherapy, followed by tislelizumab alone for another 8 cycles.

Tislelizumab 200 mg will be administered via an intravenous infusion once every 3 weeks for up to 12 cycles, and carboplatin (AUC 5) and paclitaxel (175 mg/m^2) will also be administered via an intravenous infusion once every 3 weeks for up to 4 cycles and as per local institution guidelines).

Pelvic chemoradiation should commence within 4-6 weeks after surgery, but no later than 8 weeks of surgery, and prior to chemotherapy +/- immunotherapy. Pelvic chemoradiation will be at a dose of 45Gy in 25 fractions, delivered to the clinical target volume, 5 days a week for 5 weeks.

Summary
Brief summary
The ADELE clinical trial seeks to improve outcomes for people with high-risk endometrial cancer, who have a significant risk of relapse after standard post-operative treatment with chemotherapy & radiotherapy.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible for this study if you are aged 18 or older, have been diagnosed with high-risk endometrial cancer, have completed prior surgical treatment with total hysterectomy, have not received any prior chemotherapy or pelvic radiotherapy, and are planned for adjuvant chemoradiation.

Study details
Participants will be randomly (by chance) assigned to one of two groups. One group will receive a sequential adjuvant treatment of pelvic chemoradiation, followed by 4 cycles of the new combination therapy with Tislelizumab and carboplatin plus paclitaxel chemotherapy, followed by Tislelizumab for another 8 cycles. The other group will receive the same treatment (standard treatment) without the addition of Tislelizumab. Participants will be followed up for 12 months to assess for relapse of endometrial cancer and symptoms of treatment.

It is hoped that this study may improve relapse rates in high-risk endometrial cancer by adding Tislelizumab immunotherapy to standard treatment.
