Bradley Monk, MD, gynecologic oncologist, University of Arizona Cancer Center Phoenix Branch, discusses the role of bevacizumab in the treatment of metastatic cervical cancer.

Clinical Pearls

  • The recently completed phase III GOG 240 study looked at the addition of bevacizumab to standard chemotherapy for the treatment of metastatic cervical cancer
  • Adding bevacizumab improved overall survival by nearly 4 months and improved response rate to about 50%
  • Metastatic cervical cancer was previously though to be resistant to chemotherapy
  • The FDA will be interested in these data, though it remains to be seen if approval will follow
