My gyn-onc has decided Doxil not best agent for my recurrence of UPSC stage IV so is changing me to Gemzar as single agent. In researching this (I'm to start next week) Gemzar website indicates Gemzar in combo with Cisplatin for first course treatment for OVCA (UPSC treated essentially the same) and in combo with carboplatin for recurrence beyond 6 mos post prior platinum-based chemo for first treatment. However, my protocol will be Gemzar alone, weekly x 3 weeks and then one week off.
Has anyone been treated for recurrence with Gemzar alone?
