A concurrent chemotherapy and radiotherapy regimen with cisplatin and paclitaxel yielded a good response rate and strong long-term survival outcomes in patients with locally advanced or recurrent cervical cancer.
In this video Dr. Odunsi discusses a new study that found that higher T-cell diversity in ovarian cancer is associated with poor overall survival.
A live attenuated bioengineered bacteria-vectored vaccine immunotherapy is well tolerated and appears to be associated with promising overall survival among women with persistent/recurrent metastatic cervical cancer.
Despite hematologic toxicities and port-related adverse events, IP carboplatin plus IV dose-dense paclitaxel appears to be effective in patients with suboptimally debulked epithelial ovarian or primary peritoneal carcinoma.
Baseline quality of life measures predict early cessation of chemotherapy and overall survival in women with platinum-resistant/refractory, recurrent ovarian cancer.
Extending platinum-free interval with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin, topotecan, or gemcitabine does not improve overall survival among patients with recurrent ovarian cancer.
Pembrolizumab is well-tolerated and shows promising antitumor activity and early survival rates among patients with PD-L1–positive cervical squamous cell cancer, according to preliminary results of the KEYNOTE-028 trial.
Adding metformin to a combination of everolimus plus letrozole for women with advanced or recurrent endometrioid endometrial cancer might offer clinical benefits.
Hormone maintenance therapy is associated with better survival than post-treatment surveillance for women with low-grade serous carcinoma of the ovary or peritoneum.
