Advances in the Treatment of Gynecologic Malignancies

November 01, 2002

In their review, Drs. Kim, Alvarez, and Omura have outlined a diverse group of clinical trials in a very limited space. Their summary highlights some of the most important insights gained from these trials, placing particular emphasis on the role and perspective of the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG). Although their review appropriately divides these studies into three major groups (early cervical cancer, locally advanced cervical cancer, and vulvar cancer), the results also reveal common themes that can be used to guide the overall management of women with carcinomas of the female lower genital tract.
