Objectives. To evaluate the efficacy, in terms of safety, overall survival and progression free survival of neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by radical surgery plus adjuvant chemotherapy in patients affected by locally advanced cervical cancer (stage IB2-IIB) with or without node metastases. Methods. Between June 2000 and February 2007, all patients with diagnosis of locally advanced cervical cancer referred to the Division of Gynecologic Oncology of the University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome were eligible for this protocol. All enrolled patients received 3 cycles of platinum-based chemotherapy every 3 weeks according to the scheme Cisplatin 100 mg/mq and Paclitaxel 175 mg/mq. After neoadjuvant chemotherapy all patients with stable or progressive disease were excluded from the protocol, the others were submitted to classical radical hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and bilateral systematic pelvic lymphadenectomy and 4 cycles of adjuvant treatment with platinum based chemotherapy were executed. Results. Concerning intention to treat basis analysis, 5 year overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) are 77% and 61%, respectively. The 5-year OS of patients with positive pelvic nodes and those with negative nodes metastases was respectively 60% and 87%. Concerning the according to protocol analysis, the 5-year OS and DFS are 81% and 70% respectively. The 5-year OS in patient with positive and negative lymph nodes is 75% and 88% respectively. Conclusions. The adjuvant chemotherapy regimen after neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radical surgery represents a valid treatment for patients with locally advanced cervical cancer.

Abstract

Objectives. To evaluate the efficacy, in terms of safety, overall survival and progression free survival of neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by radical surgery plus adjuvant chemotherapy in patients affected by locally advanced cervical cancer (stage IB2-IIB) with or without node metastases. Methods. Between June 2000 and February 2007, all patients with diagnosis of locally advanced cervical cancer referred to the Division of Gynecologic Oncology of the University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome were eligible for this protocol. All enrolled patients received 3 cycles of platinum-based chemotherapy every 3 weeks according to the scheme Cisplatin 100 mg/mq and Paclitaxel 175 mg/mq. After neoadjuvant chemotherapy all patients with stable or progressive disease were excluded from the protocol, the others were submitted to classical radical hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and bilateral systematic pelvic lymphadenectomy and 4 cycles of adjuvant treatment with platinum based chemotherapy were executed. Results. Concerning intention to treat basis analysis, 5 year overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) are 77% and 61%, respectively. The 5-year OS of patients with positive pelvic nodes and those with negative nodes metastases was respectively 60% and 87%. Concerning the according to protocol analysis, the 5-year OS and DFS are 81% and 70% respectively. The 5-year OS in patient with positive and negative lymph nodes is 75% and 88% respectively. Conclusions. The adjuvant chemotherapy regimen after neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radical surgery represents a valid treatment for patients with locally advanced cervical cancer.
