CME: More Chemo May Not Equal Better Outcomes in Ovarian early stage (clear cell) Cancer



Medpage Today

Action Points

  • Recurrence and survival in patients with early stage ovarian clear cell carcinoma (OCCC) were similar in those receiving 3 versus 6 cycles of platinum with or without taxane adjuvant chemotherapy, in a retrospective multi-institutional cohort.
  • Note that the study was statistically underpowered and further clinical trials, including the use of novel agents, are needed to better illuminate the best strategy for treating early stage OCCC.
