From: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus intensity-modulated radiotherapy versus concurrent chemoradiotherapy plus adjuvant chemotherapy for the treatment of locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma: a retrospective controlled study

Failure pattern NAC + IMRT [cases (%)] CCRT + AC [cases (%)] P
Locoregional relapse only 11 (9.4) 12 (9.8) 0.926
Distant metastases only 22 (18.8) 26 (21.1) 0.651
Both locoregional relapse and distant metastases 2 (1.7) 6 (4.9) 0.314
Death 28 (23.9) 37 (30.1) 0.284
