I.  Confirm, in a randomized Phase III setting, reported high response rates 
of advanced or recurrent mixed mesodermal tumors of the uterus to ifosfamide 
(IFF) plus mesna.

II.  Determine whether the addition of cisplatin (CDDP) to IFF/mesna improves 
response rates or survival in patients with these tumors.

III.  Determine the toxicity of CDDP/IFF/mesna in patients with these tumors.

Note: The purpose of most clinical trials listed in this database is to test new cancer treatments, or new methods of diagnosing, screening, or preventing cancer. Because all potentially harmful side effects are not known before a trial is conducted, dose and schedule modifications may be required for participants if they develop side effects from the treatment or test. The therapy or test described in this clinical trial is intended for use by clinical oncologists in carefully structured settings, and may not prove to be more effective than standard treatment. A responsible investigator associated with this clinical trial should be consulted before using this protocol.
