Results of cisplatin, adriamycin and etoposide chemotherapy in patients with recurrent and metastatic endometrial cancer
The efficacy of the combination treatment of cisplatin, adriamycin and etoposide were retrospectively evaluated in 26 recurrent or metastatic endometrial cancer patients. One hundred and twenty-three treatment courses were observed. Patients received 20 mg/m2 cisplatin and 80 mg/m2 etoposide by continuous IV infusion for three days and adriamycin 40 mg/m2 IV the second day. Treatment courses were repeated every four weeks. Megestrol acetate, 160 mg/day, was added in six patients who had positive progesterone receptors. Ten (38.5%) women had complete and three (11.5%) patients had partial response with an overa11 response rate of 50%. Median follow-up was 24 months. Surviving patients were alive for four months and six years. Toxicity was mainly hematological and gastrointestinal ulcerations and stomatitis were also observed.
