Background: Access to a safe and efficient chemotherapy regimen for improving the survival and live quality is a goal in ovarian carcinoma. Despite surgery is the base treatment of ovarian cancer, but in most patients chemotherapy is used due to progression of their disease. This study designed to compare two important chemotherapy regimens.
Methods: This historical cohort study compared two chemotherapy regimen cisplatin (75mg/m2)+ cyclophosphamide (750mg/m2), versus taxol (175mg/m2)+ carboplatinium (GFR+25)AUC between 1998-2005 in valiasr hospital. In this study toxicities of two regimes were compared. The survival function in these two groups were analysed with Kaplan-Meire curve.
Results: Gastrointestinal and mucosal toxicity were significantly higher in CP group compared TC group (p=0.02). Also there were no significant relation between decrease of serum CA125 and patient remission length in CP group but in other group with decrease of CA125 in lower than three cycle we had an increase in patient remission period. (P=0.02). Disease free interval in cisplatin group was longer versus taxol group (p<0.05), there was no significant difference in overall survival in two group.
Conclusion: This study revealed that cisplatin plus cyclophosphamide regimen can yet be used as a chemotherapy treatment in ovarian cancer. In this study there was no significant benefit in taxol regimen compared CP. In the adjuvant therapy of epithelial ovarian carcinoma.
