The chemotherapy of granulosa cell tumors of the ovary experience of the wisconsin clinical cancer center usa
The clinical records of 32 patients with granulosa cell tumor of the ovary treated at the Wisconsin Clinical Cancer Center (WCCC) [USA] between 1970-1982 were reviewed. Of these patients 11 were treated with 1 or more chemotherapeutic regimens, yielding a total of 22 treatment trials. Objective response was observed in 7 of 17 evaluable treatment trials (41%). The response to chemotherapy could not be assessed in 5 treatment trials due to the concomitant administration of radiotherapy. Granulosa cell tumor of the ovary is responsive to chemotherapy. The optimal chemotherapeutic regimen for this rare neoplasm remains to be established on the basis of prospective clinical trials.
