Cisplatin therapy for disseminated mixed mesodermal sarcoma of the uterus.


Eighteen patients with metastatic mixed mesodermal sarcoma of the uterus received cisplatin therapy at the University of Texas (UT) M.D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute at Houston. The dose of cisplatin varied from 75 mg/m2 to 100 mg/m2. Previous therapy included surgery in 11 patients, radiotherapy in two patients, and surgery plus radiotherapy in four patients. One patient had no prior therapy. Seven patients had also received prior chemotherapy with doxorubicin. Of 12 patients with measurable disease, one (8%) had a complete response and four (33%) had a partial response for an overall response rate of 42%. The median progression-free survival of patients treated with cisplatin as first- and second-line therapy was 4.5 and 5.5 months, respectively. Cisplatin demonstrated moderate activity with mild toxicity in this group of patients with metastatic mixed mesodermal uterine sarcomas. Further studies including cisplatin-containing combination regimens seem to be warranted.
