Bradley J. Monk, MD
Published: Tuesday, Dec 31, 2013

Bradley Monk, MD, gynecologic oncologist, University of Arizona Cancer Center Phoenix Branch, discusses the role of bevacizumab in the treatment of metastatic cervical cancer.

Monk says the recently completed phase III GOG 240 study looked at the addition of bevacizumab to standard chemotherapy for the treatment of metastatic cervical cancer. The study showed that adding bevacizumab improved overall survival by nearly 4 months and improved response rate to about 50%.

Monk says this is a remarkable achievement, since metastatic cervical cancer is resistant to chemotherapy.
