What chemotherapy regimen do you recommend with radiation therapy for cervical esophageal squamous cell carcinoma?   

The upfront plan is to use a definitive radiation dose of 66 Gy. My reading supports the use of 5FU + cisplatin but another doctor is recommending FOLFOX. The PRODIGE5/ACCORD17 trial, which examined the use FOLFOX, comprised mostly (all?) thoracic esophagus cancer, and RT doses were 50 Gy.
