Teniposide (VM-26) in ovarian cancer: a review.


PMID 1411643

Abstract

Relatively few patients with gynecologic malignancies have been included in trials with teniposide given as a single agent. For 109 patients with advanced ovarian cancer treated with various doses and schedules, an overall response rate of 12% was reported. Most patients were heavily pretreated and presumably had resistant disease. Information about teniposide's activity in combination with other cytotoxic agents, as well as its efficacy in other gynecologic malignancies, is limited. In view of the favorable pharmacologic and toxicity profiles of teniposide and its possible synergism with cisplatin and carboplatin, new treatment strategies are discussed that may have implications for further investigation of the usefulness of teniposide in advanced ovarian cancer.
