Dose-dense chemotherapy could be a superior option for adjuvant treatment of endometrial cancer compared with standard chemotherapy, according to findings from investigators with Segal Cancer Center at Jewish General Hospital in Montreal.
Until Sep 27, 2016, 29 patients progressed and 24 deaths occurred in the standard therapy cohort, compared with 11 progressions and 9 deaths in the [dose-dense] cohort. At 42 months, which represents the median follow-up in the experimental cohort, twice as many patients in the standard group progressed (18 vs 9) and more than twice as many died (17 vs 7).
