  • Carboplatin as a single agent is effective therapy for recurrent ovarian cancer in women who recur following treatment with carboplatin and paclitaxel, and the treatment-free interval predicts response to single-agent carboplatin. However, our secondary analysis suggests that carboplatin and paclitaxel may produce a higher response rate and a survival benefit compared to C alone. This supports the conclusions of ICON4, which recently reported both overall and progression-free survival benefits with C + T over C in women with platinum-sensitive recurrent disease.
