Meta-analysis of surgery in advanced ovarian carcinoma: is maximum cytoreductive surgery an independent determinant of prognosis?

American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Abstract

If maximum cytoreductive surgery benefits the survival of women with advanced ovarian cancer, the median survival time of groups of such women will improve as the proportion of women undergoing maximum cytoreductive surgery is increased. Fifty-eight suitable studies that encompass 6962 patients with advanced ovarian cancer were identified. Multiple linear regression was used to analyze the effects on median survival time of the following variables: the proportion of each cohort undergoing maximum cytoreductive surgery, the use of platinum-containing chemotherapy, the dose intensity of chemotherapy, the proportion of each cohort with stage IV disease, and the year of publication of the study. Maximum cytoreductive surgery was associated with only a small improvement in median survival time, but platinum-containing chemotherapy improved median survival time substantially. Increased dose intensity also conferred a useful survival benefit. Cytoreductive surgery probably has only a small effect on the survival of women with advanced ovarian cancer. The type of chemotherapy used is more important.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
