Abstract

Sixteen non-pretreated patients with locally advanced cervical cancer (FIGO Stage IIIb) were treated with two 3-week cycles of platinum, bleomycin, and methotrexate (PBM), which were followed by radiation therapy. Response to both modalities was seen in 11 patients (69%), and three patients (19%) had a progression-free survival of more than 2 years. Radiation therapy was proven to be feasible after two cycles of PBM combination chemotherapy.
