Chemotherapy with CDDP
The Authors report the results obtained in 30 patients affected by ovarian cardnoma and treated with chemotherapy using the parenteral route in 27 cases and the intraperitoneal one in 3 women. Parenteral chemotherapy following surgical staging and extensive tumour removal with the last residual tumour, consisted of a therapeutic scheme of mono- and poli-chemotherapy. The doses of cisplatin (CDDP) in mono-chemotherapy were correlated to the intensive anatomical-radiological-surgical staging. The patients treated with poli-chemotherapy underwent cycles with CDDP + alkylating agents. Moreover, 3 of the patients received low doses of cisplatin by intraperitoneal administration. In 27 cases pre- and post-therapy enzymuria was evaluated: it represents, in fact, the most reliable. laboratory test to discover an acute tubulo-toxicity and is able to reveal chronic tubular damage. Our results demonstrate that a sui table nephrologic monitoring of the patients allows a more accurate use of the cisplatin with a better cost-benefit relation.
