Treatment of Ewing's sarcoma by radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy : results at 3 and 5 years



Treatment of Ewing's sarcoma by radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy : results at 3 and 5 years



La Nouvelle Presse Medicale 9(6): 359-362



The local treatment of Ewing's sarcoma by radiotherapy is classically linked to a very poor prognosis : 10 to 15% of 5 years survival, 75 to 95% of distant metastasis in 2 years. The combination of local radiotherapy to a systemic adjuvant chemotherapy have been recently shown to give a real benefit to this prognosis. The therapeutic trial of the EORTC and GETO, presented here allows us to hope a disease free survival at 5 years for 50% of our patients and a complete survival at 5 years for 56% of them.
