      Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB) designed a trial intended to change practice in the United States with adequate power to definitively determine the efficacy of preoperative combined modality therapy suggested by the Walsh and Urba studies.   Pelvic malignancies encompass a diverse group of diseases and account for enormous morbidity and mortality worldwide. Given the established role of surgery and with better understanding of the potential synergy between chemotherapy and radiation, an era of combined modality therapy for these malignancies began to emerge in the : Amikar Sehdev, R. de W.
