Chemotherapy and molecular therapy in cervical cancer

Gabriela Olivia Regalado Porras, Jessica Chávez Nogueda, Adela Poitevin Chacón

Summary:

In recent years, the treatment of locally-advanced and metastatic cervical cancer has improved greatly due to the introduction of targeted therapies, new chemotherapy combinations, and emerging treatments. Candidates for potentially curative treatment are those patients with good functional status without associated comorbidities. Numerous trials have demonstrated that chemotherapy prolongs survival versus supportive care alone. In addition, polychemotherapy schemes are superior to single agent regimens. Targeted molecular agents have proven beneficial in the treatment of cervical cancer. Second-line treatment should be considered standard practice in patients with good functional status. Finally, given the poor survival outcomes in patients with metastatic disease, participation in clinical studies should always be considered the best option.
