Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy with paclitaxel or cisplatin in patients with stage III-C/IV ovarian cancer. Is there any difference?



 Cytostatic is a word some doctors and researchers use to describe the way some anti cancer drugs work.

Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy with paclitaxel or cisplatin in patients with stage III-C/IV ovarian cancer. Is there any difference?
 

Highlights

There is a benefit of HIPEC treatment compared with cytoreduction alone.
Incomplete cytoreduction and high PCI reduced disease-free survival.
Type of cystotatic is not relevant regarding disease free survival analysis.

Abstract

Objective

To compare the results of the administration of HIPEC with Paclitaxel or Cisplatin after cytoreduction in patients with stage IIIC-IV ovarian cancer, especially focused on disease-free survival.

Patients

We retrospectively analyzed a consecutive series of patients operated after being diagnosed with stage III-C/IV serous epithelial ovarian carcinoma. Patients included in the study were treated between January 2008 and March 2015. After cytoreduction, Paclitaxel (doses of 60 mg/m2O or Cisplatin (doses of 75 mg/m2) were used.

Results

A total of 111 patients were included. Median age was 61 years. In 60 of them (54%) Paclitaxel was used during HIPEC treatment and 51 patients (46%) were treated with Cisplatin. PCI was similar between groups (PCI = 11 in both cases). Median follow up was 34 months (12–96 months). The median disease free survival in Paclitaxel Group was 27 months and 33 months in Cisplatin Group (p = 0.551). In patients treated with Paclitaxel disease free survival rates at 1, 2, and 3 years were 79%, 60% and 46%. In patients treated with Cisplatin disease free survival at 1, 2, and 3 years were 64%, 50% and 40% respectively. After a multivariate analysis, incomplete cytoreduction and PCI >11  were identified as independent factors associated with a reduced disease-free survival. Cystotatic used was not relevant regarding disease free survival analysis.

Conclusion

HIPEC with paclitaxel or cisplatin after cytoreduction in patients with ovarian cancer IIIC-IV has not shown different results in disease-free survival outcomes.
