Bottom Line: The Kaplan-Meier estimate and 95 % CI for PFS at 5 years was 66 % (48-78 %).Fifteen patients (37 %) had medical record documentation of lymphedema following treatment.After additional follow-up, OS and PFS estimates remain high and in-field recurrences low following "sandwich" therapy.

ABSTRACT

Background: Our objective was to determine if previously reported overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) rates are maintained long term following multimodal therapy for advanced and recurrent endometrial cancer and to assess the lymphedema rates associated with this therapy.

Methods: Women with advanced-stage or recurrent endometrial cancer were recruited between 9/2004 and 6/2009 to our previously published Phase II trial. Patients received intravenous docetaxel (75 mg/m2) and carboplatin (AUC = 6) every 3 weeks for 3 cycles before and after radiation therapy. Patient outcomes were updated in July 2014. Data abstracted included presence of lymphedema, disease progression, and death. OS and PFS estimates at 5 years were calculated using Kaplan-Meier methods.

Results: Of the 41 patients enrolled, 10 (24 %) had stage IIIA and 21 (51 %) had stage IIIC disease; 32 (78 %) had endometrioid histology; and 35 (85 %) completed the protocol. With a median follow-up of 5 years, 15 of 41 patients have died. The Kaplan-Meier estimate and 95 % CI for OS at 5 years was 70 % (53-82 %). Excluding the two patients with recurrent disease at enrollment, 15 of 39 patients progressed or died during follow-up. The Kaplan-Meier estimate and 95 % CI for PFS at 5 years was 66 % (48-78 %). Fifteen patients (37 %) had medical record documentation of lymphedema following treatment.

Conclusions: After additional follow-up, OS and PFS estimates remain high and in-field recurrences low following "sandwich" therapy. The "sandwich" method remains efficacious for women with stage III-IV or recurrent endometrial cancer.

Mentions: After excluding the two patients who enrolled at recurrence, 15 of the 39 patients progressed or died during follow-up (Fig. 2). The Kaplan–Meier estimate and 95 % CI for PFS at 3 years was 71 % (54–83 %) and 5 years was 66 % (48–78 %); estimated median PFS was 8.5 years in this subgroup. As reported in the initial manuscript, the majority of relapses occurred distantly. There was one additional recurrence to the liver since the original manuscript, occurring 56 months after study entry. In total there were two local relapses (one of which was both a local and distant failure) that occurred within the radiated field and nine distant recurrences (Fig. 3).Fig. 2
